I left New York City!

And I loved it. Loved it. Had a great trip to West Virginia with Art Silverman, my producer at NPR. We were there to do a piece about a fire in 1945 in Fayetteville, WV. It was a sad story, but I loved Fayetteville and all the people I met there.

This is me in Not New York City.


This is the Fayetteville Courthouse.


This is the site of the fire. The family constructed a billboard which sat at the top of the rise, by the pine trees.


I have pictures of the billboard and the children who were lost in the fire which I will scan in later.

One thought on “I left New York City!

  1. The last picture is not the site of the fire. You are close though. The house actually stood to your right.
