" But after two hours Wednesday night of standing around on Centre Street with about 40 others, most of whom seemed to have some connection with the Peabody Institute where the crew was filming or were drinking at the Anchor bar across the street, there was Kevin Spacey standing in the street in tuxedo pants and a T-shirt with his suspenders hanging down around his knees.

I have a new favorite prime-time drama: Sidney Lumet's "100 Centre Street." Yes, that Sidney Lumet, the 76-year-old director of such splendid feature films as "Serpico"; "12 Angry Men"; and "Dog Day Afternoon." He created this exquisitely stark series about the grit and grind, life and death, inside New York City's criminal courts at 100 Centre Street. It's A&E's first weekly drama, and I hope it runs forever. The series is so dark it's almost film noir, from the lonely jazz trumpet notes wafting over the opening credits to the deadly consequences that result when characters give in to their passions.

A museum banner above the Walters Art Museum in Mount Vernon fell Friday afternoon, shattering a giant window, drawing emergency crews and closing the museum's ticket office for the day. The sign is located on the Centre Street side of the museum, said Mona M. Rock, museum spokeswoman. No one was hurt and only one pane was shattered - though it was a large one, she said. "We're just grateful no one was injured and we'll be fine," she said. Because the ticket office is closed, Rock said, the exhibit "The Book of the Faiyum," will be free to patrons on Friday.
