Coriolistic Anachronisms


A Train Up The Hudson

Visit to the remains of West Point Foundry, Cold Spring

Like a giant – if anatomically incorrect – octopus, five main Metro-North railroad lines and their sub-routines spread from Manhattan and Jersey City, fanning up into the states of New Jersey, New York and Connecticut. They constitute a commuter rail system with over one hundred and twenty…

Chinatown Touch-And-Go

In and out swiftly, grab the pork buns, take a few pictures and go

Being more accustomed to transcontinental flights these days – the long-haul, settle-in, find your sweet spot and economize patience and energy, ocean-facing departures, high altitude cruise and straight-in approaches, much movie watching despite the small screens, LCD’s reflecting the confinement, cabin crew diving in turns to their secret rest area below…
