Astolat Dollhouse Castle on Public Display

Today, I went to see the Astolat Dollhouse Castle at the Time Warner Center!

Notable reviewers have said: "Astolat Dollhouse Castle represents an important example of American art, both historically and aesthetically.” “Astolat is one of the finest miniature structures in the world…exhibiting a rare combination of sculpture, art, engineering and detail that set it apart from anything in existence today. It must be seen to be believed.”

My Memory of Lindy's

In about 1960, I went to Lindy's with my father and his friend. They would not seat us because my father was not wearing a jacket, and maybe he also needed to put on a tie. They gave him a "loaner" jacket and then we were seated. He was very embarrassed and that memory sticks with me. They were very snooty in there and had a real attitude. To this day, I remember the coat check girl snickering.
