Bird Chalet

If you were a bird, would you rather live in this Austrian Chalet, the Nunnery Apartments in Bruges or the Postmodern House on the High Line in New York?

New York Public Library Waste Tap

19 June, 2016

The Main Branch of the New York Public Library is a gorgeous building, inside an out. Aside from its more well known features–the Rose Main Reading Room and the lions “Patience” and “Fortitude”— there are charming bits and bobs to be found in more out of the way spots. One such place is the Ladies restroom on the second floor, where you can find a 100+ year old ‘WASTE’ tap, the first the Author has ever seen.

Turtles Around the World

The Author has seen some impressive turtles in her travels across the globe: Beijing, Paris, New York, Boston and more.  The fierce dragon turtle at the Forbidden City is her particular favorite. Never has a turtle seemed more threatening.
