Times Square * New York City


Although being in Times Square at midnight on New Year's Eve
isn't my dream, I can still imagine the excitement!

The busiest crossroads!

Maybe a few recruits will find their way here to sign up tonight?

It's a Red Step kind of night about to happen.

If you can make it here you can make it anywhere!

New York City sights

St. Paul's Chapel
History surrounds this little Chapel from the beginning of our nation.

The Woolworth Building
I say start a new trend and bring back the old stores that influenced
the stores of today in one way or another.

From this point of view  Prometheus looks to be wave surfing with fire in hand.

"Prometheus, teacher in every art, brought the fire 
that hath proved to mortals a means to mighty ends." 

..said to be Prometheus' creation of the first woman -  'Maiden'

St. Patricks cathedral
Unbelievable details and creations just on the outside looking up. 
This is just a sliver of all this beautiful place offers.

New York City hidden treasures

The details abound all around New York City.

Radio City Music Hall symbols.

Drama and Arts

A centurion?

Wisdom and Knowledge
Is this really what it's all about?

Not exactly a mermaid but still fishing around!

What else is happening around the world?

Little Italy, NYC

Some of the roots of NYC.

Balcony scene of West Side Story comes to mind.

Fly your Italian colors!

..and to think I saw it on Mulberry Street

Even the fire hydrants make an Italian statement.

Wanamakers General Store in Kempton, PA

If you can't find it here, just ask!

Since 1886 Wanamakers have provided the necessities to the local communities.

Need a fishing license or bait to catch dinner?
Do you just need dinner?

This beats Walmart in my book!

Welcome to you!

The Great Willy's Picnic ~ 1929 Willy Overland Whippet dump truck

1929 Willy Overland Whippet dump truck
Someone has done a superb job of restoring this gem!

Every detail has been lovingly brought back to almost its original state.

Even something as little as this emblem is a hot commodity.

Spiked out!

Ultra class.

Whippet Six!

The gears were all in working order.

From the front or from behind this is one spectacular truck!

Kempton - Wannemaker Railroad

The Kempton - Wannemaker Railroad.
Such a great and enjoyable trip From Kempton, PA to Wannemaker, PA!

Go back in time in the passanger cars. 

On special occasions some good tunes will roll you down the tracks.

There's lots of labor of love that goes into the details to restore the railroad cars

You can sit inside or enjoy the good weather in the open air car.
