weekend expedition

I touched on this yesterday but I thought, what the hell, let’s share a bit of the New York City with the blogosphere. As if they don’t know about this place.

Apparently Ulysses S. Grant is buried in the Upper West Side. Or his tomb is there. Something like that. Look, I’m not this history buff here. I got an A in it always, duh, but I chose to utilize the learn and purge. I don’t have all this extra brain space for the War of 1812 and how to do calculus.

What is there? Lots of stars. Okay, not lots but enough to keep shit interesting.

I thought the front of the Memorial was quite cool. Minus the fact that it looks like every other monument thingy.

{let us have peace}
Then I found this awesome church. And have I ever mentioned that I like gargoyles? Well I do and this church had a lot of them.
And look guys, I found a friend!
That concludes today’s short & sweet history lesson.
Be sure to check on back over here tomorrow, I’m going to explain all the buzz about “the ring”.
