    Good stuff, Claude. Thanks.

    I enjoy these bits from BIT. No match for our own Mr. J, but enjoyable nonetheless.

    He’s wrong when he says the Bossert was built “in the 1920s”. One of my postcards of the place—showing the original building before it expanded to Remsen Street—is postmarked Sep. 3, 1914. Which causes me to suspect the construction date he gives for the Miles Standish is also horse puckey.
