Photo A Day Challenge: Letter ‘M’…

Metropolitan Museum of Art ~ New York City

I was here last week to see Monet, Dutch Masters and much more, including mummies and the Temple of Dendur which although not an M, is magnificent.

Photo A Day Challenge: Brick…

My home town of Newark, New Jersey is known as ‘Brick City’ so how could I not do my post on the city where I was born and raised.

 

This beautiful brick church, the Old First Presbyterian Church was established in 1666 by the founders of Newark, NJ.  My 10 times great-grandfather, Stephen Freeman was one of the founders of Newark and he, along with some of my other ancestors were buried there.

Newark is referred to as Brick City, and has been for many years. The name is derived from the tall, brick buildings that the city erected as affordable housing for residents in the 1970’s. Today, the entire city adopts the nickname, which can also refer to the tall buildings in the downtown area of the city.
