Kilmanagh, Michigan

This very old building used to be a general store and has been in same location since 1873. I used to drive by this place on the way to the family cottage as a kid and it has not changed in 50 years.This is in the middle of flat farm country in Michigan’s thumb. It is the town of Kilmanagh and basically consists of a bar, this building, and a few homes. The building looks like it could have been in the old West.

Capital building, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

When visiting my daughter in Harrisburg, PA area we stopped at the state capital building to take a little tour. Dedicated in 1906 by then President Teddy Roosevelt, he stated that it was ” the most beautiful state capital in the nation”. It is designed in classic Renaissance style with the exterior made of Vermont granite and the roof is of green glazed tile. The interior of the dome is based on St. Peters Basilica in Rome.

New York City

A few New York City buildings I took pictures of a few years ago on Upper West Side and Central Park South. Love the many pre war buildings in that area.

A walk in the Spring

With April coming soon I was reflecting back a few years ago when walking through Fort Tryon Park in Upper Manhattan. There is a great restaurant in the park called the New Leaf which is a good place to stop for coffee or lunch. Also in the park is the Cloisters which is a must see. Ended the stroll with an underbelly view of the George Washington bridge.
