#WoodburyCommon is still a great place to shop after all these years. And the food court feels spacious with lots more choices. All you need to fuel up for the next round. Only problem is the wallet runs empty... #shopping#blackandwhite#nyc
“Hoboken is a New Jersey city on the Hudson River. Its former industrial port now features parks such as Pier A Park, with Manhattan skyline views. The Hudson River Waterfront Walkway links several green spaces. Global eateries, bistros and bars cluster on Washington Street and riverside Frank Sinatra Drive, named after the locally born singer.” And it looks like a happy place too 🙂 #baby#balloons#besohappythatwhenotherslookatyoutheybecomehappytoo#hoboken#nj
“Items: Is #Fashion Modern? explores the present, past—and sometimes the future—of 111 items of clothing and accessories that have had a strong impact on the world in the 20th and 21st centuries—and continue to hold currency today.” Not sure how this #jumpsuit by #richardmalone impacted the world but at least it catches attention! #ItemsMoMA#MoMA#nyc
What do you get out of a visit to the #art#museum? Some escape into the emotions and imagination of the artists. Others study the intricate technicalities or creative process. But most have their eyes glued to their phones, imprinting masterpieces onto social media with a swish of their finger. #philistines#MoMA#pollock#starrynight#spider#nyc
A little nostalgia never hurt anyone... Might be junk food but it sure makes a happy meal. "A&W origins date back to when Roy W. Allen opened a walk-up root beer stand in Lodi, California in 1919. Allen's employee Frank Wright partnered with him and founded the first A&W restaurant in Sacramento, California, in 1923. The company name was taken respectively from the initials of their last names — Allen and Wright.
The company became famous in the United States for its "frosty mugs," where the mugs would be kept in the freezer and eventually get filled with A&W Root Beer before they are served to customers." https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/A%26W_Restaurants#
Things with names that are hard to pronounce are usually good. "Skaneateles Lake is one of the Finger Lakes in central New York in the United States. The name Skaneateles means long lake in one of the local Iroquoian languages. The lake is sometimes referred to as "The Roof Garden of the Lakes" because its altitude (863.27 ft or 263.12 m) is higher than the other Finger Lakes.
The cleanest of the Finger Lakes, its water is so pure that the city of Syracuse and other municipalities use it unfiltered." https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skaneateles_Lake
#boldtcastle#1000islands#alexandriabay#ny Sad story behind the castle. But at least he was a rich man. "At the turn-of-the-century, George C. Boldt, millionaire proprietor of the world famous Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City, set out to build a full size rhineland castle in Alexandria Bay, on picturesque Heart Island. The grandiose structure was to be a display of his love for his wife, Louise.
Beginning in 1900, the Boldt family spent summers in the 1000 Islands at the Boldt Families Wellesley House near Mr. Boldt’s Wellesley Island Farms while 300 workers including stonemasons, carpenters, and artists fashioned the six story, 120 room castle, complete with tunnels, a powerhouse, Italian gardens, a drawbridge, alster tower (children’s playhouse) and a dove cote. Not a single detail or expense was spared.
In January 1904, tragedy struck. Boldt telegraphed the island and commanded the workers to immediately “stop all construction.” Louise had died suddenly. A broken hearted Boldt could not imagine his dream castle without his beloved. Boldt never returned to the island, leaving behind the structure as a monument of his love."
