Village Valuables

I suppose spring is the best time for community yard sales as residents clean out cramped carriage houses and dark attics in preparation for the summer. Though the pickings seem slim these days I can only imagine what treasures have been found in years past.

The Edison and Ford Winter Estate

When Thomas Edison first visited Fort Myers Florida it must have looked vastly different than today. No nondescript urban sprawl, no budget motels and no 2 for 1 T-shirt shops. In fact little existed in the area aside from the abandoned fort of the city's namesake. So it's pretty remarkable…

Fatal Ascent

"...to honor the Maya ball game gods of the underworld, those to be sacrificed were often bound into symbolic ball shape and tumbled down stairs. Undoubtedly this practice wasn't lost on Maya priests as they recognized this most magnificent method of spattering blood. So stairs were built on great scale,…

Summer Streets of New York

"Summer Streets" in New York offers an accommodating and friendly atmosphere for exercise and recreation. It also gives New Yorkers another venue upon which to knee-cap slower moving pedestrians, practice profanities and further employ an already perfected general anti-social persuasion. For me, I get the opportunity to go all those places…

Behind Closed Doors

"...confirming hotel Casa Mexilio's authenticity and regional importance, their web site states that Serapio Baqueiro Preve died here and President Lázaro Cárdenas used the residence to negotiate business. Hosting a President is a legitimate honor worthy of posting on any web site, however, having someone keel-over in one of your…

Table for One

When I wondered into the abandoned Rathskeller in the bowels of Louisville's Seelbach Hotel I never truly knew what was in my presence. The only light came from the few Gothic wall sconces positioned about and wasn't significant enough to make out more than vague shapes in the dark hall. Patiently…

The Bustle and the Glow

Everyone has a vision of Grand Central Terminal. For me two iconic images stand out. As unfortunate everyman, Roger Thornhill (played by Cary Grant) slinks through the bustle of crisscrossing commuters in the terminal's main concourse in Alfred Hitchock's classic chase film North by Northwest. His eyes covered by shades and face sunk…

Market Day

The seasonal delights of market day in Manhattan. Carrots of many variety, rosy radishes, tomatoes so irregular that they'd never see the stand at even the smallest grocer, local lobster shaded and cooled on ice, crisp New England apples, rustic crates of greens and the most seasonal of all sweet…

Street Kings

I love dogs - and it’s a common sight to see them rule the road in excess numbers in many under-developed nations, where reproductive control is lacking. However, in Cusco the situation is slightly different. While the majority of these second citizens live in the streets, their physical heath is…
