In time for summer, an exhibition of the photographs of Aaron Rose is now on at the Museum of New York City. Taken beginning in 1961, they show New Yorkers being themselves at NYC's most popular beach. One of the earliest art photographers...
This year is the 40th anniversary that Hank Aaron broke Babe Ruth's Home Run record and a great time to see Hank Aaron's Childhood Home and Museum. I had a chance to go to Mobile, Alabama this past month and see the home. It's an...
Very Cool. Last year PHeymont took me to Coney Island and we were lucky enough to see the Carousel that had recently been restored . That craftsmanship alone is worth the trip to Coney Island. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05...ney-island.html?_r=0
Thanks for a great nostalgic look at one of my baseball heroes: a great craftsman on the field, and a solid human with not a lot of "front" and a real commitment to team and to others. Some of today's players should visit!
I still have a Time magazine somewhere from the week that Hank broke Babe Ruth's record. I collected things this and recall what a big deal it was at the time (justifiably so). A nice look at a piece of classic America. I've never been to Mobile, but I'm intrigued now.
DrFumblefinger- Mobile is really worth a visit and I'm sure you'd enjoy it! I'm putting together a few pieces on Government St. in Mobile . I am so impressed by that street alone .Really one of my favorite historic streets anywhere.
Hi Rob, it is a really cool place to visit. I had been to the Negro Hall of Fame in Kansas, but not the one in Cooperstown. It was so worth the wait! Thanks for mentioning Aaron's home in Mobile. I would like to see it someday too. Have a great weekend
You can't help but be impressed with the Aaron family after seeing the place! Glad to see the Hall of Fame has a great Hank Aaron section too! My blog on Hank Aaron's childhood home: https://www.travelgumbo.com/blo...ron-s-childhood-home
Thanks Samantha, I'd love to visit Cooperstown. When I saw Hank Aaron's boyhood home at Mobile's minor league stadium with all it's incredible baseball memorabilia, I knew I had to see the Baseball Hall of Fame one day. Thanks for showing me what to expect!
