Like many personal blogs of its era, this blog is moribund, a casualty of what we might call "the Facebook effect." However, as of late 2015, two things are clear: (1) The Indie Web is a thing, and (2) the re-decentralization of the web is a thing. So who knows? 2016 2017 2018 (!) could be the year this blog rises from its own ashes. Stay tuned!

The Howard Johnson’s at 46th and Broadway in Manhattan is apparently doomed. I don’t know quite how to feel about this. Show me this picture and I know exactly on the planet where to go to see it in person. It’s like 8845 Highsmith Lane, or the Eiffel Tower, or De Rokerij on Singel in Amsterdam: It is a faraway point on the face of the globe that I have seen and have a vivid visual memory of.

The problem with the Howard Johnson’s on 46th, I suppose, is that I only have a vivid visual memory of it because I have walked past it so many times. No, I have never eaten at the Howard Johnson’s at 46th and Broadway. Should I have? I suppose I missed my chance.
