    Jeez, StarHalo! That looks like I imagine Vegas would... Almost visible from space! Clark Griswald would approve. (I loved the Christmas Vacation movie- that was meant as a compliment!)

    In the right side of the pic is one of the oldest churches in America according to local lore.


    ^^ minty old building.

    At some point when they paved the main drag in the 1 horse town, there was a safety award plaque applied to the asphalt...


    ^^ this was revealed
    They scraped off the asphalt down to the initial layer above the old concrete in order to repave it back like it used to be long ago.


    ^^ 7 up safety award.

    Wife and I have walked past this spot dozens of times. Just a low stone wall around a garden, we thought. Actually a sunken patio, maybe 25 feet from the main street. Ingenious way to have some privacy in the middle of town.

    Yesterday we went to NYC's American Museum of Natural History and later to dinner at
    "Bubba Gump's"
    It is based/themed on the Movie Forest Gump.



    That's my little Convoy S2+
    My EDC for the day.

    An interesting concept:
    They had license plates, stationed like a flip chart.
    One... RUN Forest Run,
    The other .... STOP Forest Stop.

    If you needed a waitress, just flip the sign, and any server running by would stop and attend to your needs.




    Ah yes... my little Red Convoy S2+ shorty, hanging out with the condiments.

    Here's something you don't see everyday...


    ^^ a rail road crossing a rail road at a rail road crossing.

    Used to be the rails shown were a sorta highway system within a factory district of the 1 horse town I'm working in.
    The ones in the distance are still a highway for commerce and Amtrak travelling up n down the east Coast of America.


    And an old luxury hotel...


    ^^ who knows who stayed there
    About the time the horseless carriage was a regular sighting this luxury hotel was established in between Henderson NC and Petersburg Va.
    Back then the carriage or horseless carriage weren't all that comfy. So hotels like this dotted roadsides in many places along the main highway of the east coast of the United States...long before I-95.

    Quite possibly operational too. Just not needed as the tracks going right to left in the photo are not used anymore.

Too many people keeping an eye on it though. If you look close, starting about a third of the way down the building, you'll see big metal stars between the first and second, and second and third floors. They hold metal rods that span the building side-to-side. I want a star when they finally demo the building.



    Gargoyles! There is a second one on the smaller chimney to the right rear of the obvious one.
    that is an amazing piece of architecture ! the gargoyles is fantastic !
    Does anybody recognize what town is it?

    3 months late, but it's Honesdale, Pa. in the Gargoyle pics. Went to Centralia, Pa. today, drove up the "Grafitti Highway", Highway 61 outside of town. Big underground coal fire still burns there, town's mostly abandoned and razed under Eminent Domain. Spooky, yet very cool. Yes, we were trespassing, no I don't condone it, on my own hook, etc...

    So, there is a couple a few miles from my house on a small country road who do this every year for the Halloween season. I decided to finally take pictures and post them.
