Charles Dickens Christmas – Skaneateles NY

A Charles Dickens Christmas held in the town of Skaneateles NY every winter.

A Christmas Carol

“It is required of every man,” the Ghost returned, “that the spirit within him should walk abroad among his fellow-men, and travel far and wide; and if that spirit goes not forth in life, it is condemned to do so after death. It is doomed to wander through the world — oh, woe is me! — and witness what it cannot share, but might have shared on earth, and turned to happiness!”

Charles Dickens

Harry Potter – The Art of Wizardry

On the weekend closest to Halloween, thousands of fans flock to turn Press Bay Alley into something similar to that resembling a Harry Potter Diagon Alley scene (cosplay).  From a one day event now turned four,  this all happens in the town of Ithaca NY, a college town situated at the southern end of Cayuga Lake.

Point Mountain, Hancock NY – The Tale of a Crypt

Where the East and West Branch rivers converge in the small town of Hancock NY, lies Point Mountain.  Dr. Lester Ellis Woolsey (1873-1962), the owner of the property, was the longtime Delaware County coroner who had practiced medicine in Hancock since 1901.  A memorial for Dr. Woolsey was built in the 1940’s to house his remains along with several others.  There are over 200 resting places available in the mausoleum.   At one time, around 30 or so bodies were housed, but the mausoleum was never finished.  By the 1970’s, all bodies were removed due to vandals and grave robbers.  Dr. Woolsey is buried at the Old Colonial Mausoleum, Union Dale, Pa.         (1st photo – Author Unknown)
