josephine olivia. i fell...

chrissie, christina and i saw josephine perform last year at 49 west in annapolis.  this song became a real earworm for me.

the jane hotel!

finally spent a night at the jane hotel!  it's so cute.  the rooms are like cabins or old train sleeping compartments.

a friend and i once took a train like that through the alps, from prague to  milan.  even longer ago, one winter, i lived aboard a 75 year old yawl in annapolis. as the caretaker. all wood, brass and macramé- this hotel room was so reminiscent.

even after 10 years living in harlem i still like being a tourist in new york city.

the jane was built in the nineteen aughts, a residence for mariners.  survivors of the titanic were housed here. in the interim it morphed to gritty single room occupancy dwellings, and now to poor man's boutique hotel (and it's still morphing- sro residents still occupy some of the rooms, which are gradually being converted as they depart.) rooms start from $105 plus tax for this cute cubby with shared pristine deco bath down the hall. one can also get a bigger room and private bath for $300.00 something.
