I took a short hiatus from writing and editing due to the celebration of America's Independence Day, but my filming of the long weekend festivities remained strong. Over the long weekend, I managed to visit some new places and spaces-- none of which were in my neck of the woods (Manhattan), though. I bounced around … Continue reading Anywhere But Manhattan
