I created a new “articles” section of the website for longer pieces of writing. My first one up there is about my attempt to solve the mystery of the just what is the oldest house in The Bronx. Local historians have always thought that it could be a house in North Riverdale–the Hadley House. The article is quite long so don’t dive in unless you are sitting somewhere comfortable! I couldn’t resist writing about the fascinating history of the place that I learned along the way–which includes a skirmish between French and German soldiers.
