My idea of a great afternoon, spending it going through old records. Yesterday I spent a wonderful few hours at the archives of the Episcopal Diocese of New York. Thank you Wayne Kempton! The archives are HUGE and meticulously stored and maintained, and when one thing I needed wasn’t there, Wayne emailed me later with it.
I don’t want to say what I was looking for because hopefully I’ll have a happy announcement to make soon-ish. I’ll get to spend tons of time here and at the Municipal Archives and the New York Public Library and many other archives. Places of enchantment for me, basically.
