Thanks to Chris Cooper who organized the Central Park contribution drive with help as well from Brooklyn birders , below is the photo by Mike Bryant and directions to the bench which was dedicated and commemorated yesterday.
Here's Chris' account of the ceremony:
We had the dedication ceremony for the Central Park bench for Marty Sohmer yesterday; a lovely informal affair on a cold but clear morning, gathering about 40 of our area's longtime birders. Photos of Marty and favorite Marty stories abounded, and an aerial honor guard (the famed Fifth Ave. red-tails) did a flyover during the proceedings. We raised a glass of non-alcoholic sparkling cider to our friend and then gabbed the morning away. I thought the celebratory and convivial atmosphere was the best possible tribute to Marty, since he did so much to foster that spirit in our small community.
