Aloha to RWA in NYC - Snapshots of Heroes

I walked East on Friday, and West on Saturday, to mail books home via media rate.  I discovered treasures along the way. Above is a closed fire station which served as Engine Company 65.

I love its red door ....

... and the patriotic fire hydrant! 

I also walked by an active fire station ....

... whose fireman agreed to a photo!

Thank you for your service!

What historic buildings have you visited in your area?  One randomly selected commenter from this week's blogs wins a book choice from my convention stash.  Comments are open through Saturday, August 8, 10 pm in Baltimore.  I'll post the winner on Sunday, August 9.

Aloha Spirit in Charm City

This towering apartment building stands out in the NYC skyline ...


  1. great pictures - it's fun to walk thru a city without rushing. We have some pretty old buildings from the 1700's that have been saved - like the Ford Mansion where General George Washington spent some winters during the war.

  2. I've been to Seward Park Library many times and it's since been named a landmark site here.

  3. Can't think of any...I need to get out more!

  4. We have mostly old churches and We have Mark twain's old house.
