Merchant’s House Museum

Biking the South County Trailway

The South County Trailway is a relatively flat, well maintained trail that was part of the Old Putnam Railway line.  It is one of 4 segments from the train’s path that have been repurposed for public use.  The trail starts at the top of Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx and continues north for just under 15 miles.

Dreamstates at Harlem Stage

Dreamstates is currently on a limited release tour across the United States and was shown at Harlem Stage on Friday.  The film, written and directed by Anisia Uzeyman and starring both the director and Saul Williams engages the audience with it’s imagery of the United States, limited dialogue but puissant interactions between the two main characters and a deeply thoughtful soundtrack.

The Foods of Apulia in Southern Italy

An 8 hour flight from New York JFK into Rome Leonardo da Vinci airport.  A 4 hour train ride southeast into Bari.  Another 2 hour train ride further south into Lecce.  And a 45 minute cab ride over to Otranto on the Adriatic Sea.

A bit of a trek, but well worth it to explore and eat my way through the Apulia Region of Italy.
