Witchcraft on the West Side

For Halloween, here's my NY Times Witchcraft article:

Witchcraft on the West Side Metropolitan Diary: Harry Potter would have been right at home with a witchcraft shop that appeared when needed, and then seemingly disappeared.

From my Rich & Famous tour this morning:
The house of murdered celebrity columnist Dorothy Kilgallen. Her body was found by her hairdresser Nov. 8, 1965–fully dressed from her appearance on What's My Line the night before and artificially propped up in a bed— not her own bed, but a rarely used guest room. The NYPD declared her a su***de but new evidence points to foul play. Apparently she had finished taping What’s My Line at Rockefeller Center, gone to dinner and drinks and then went home.
Her hairdresser found her dressed and still wearing her wig and tv makeup which she never would do, he claims. She confided to friends that she was working on an explosive new report about the JFK murder but no papers were ever found! Toxicology reports said she had enough drugs in her body to kill a large animal. Friends interviewed said while Dorothy enjoyed a martini or two, she was NOT a drunk or a drug user.
The current owner has divided the large mansion into apartments.

T-Back Thursday-- Bickford's Cafeterias!
Apparently, back in the day (before fast-food), New York City was full of cafeterias and automats so people could grab a quick meal! Here's a great pic of Bickford's Cafeteria (this branch stood at 34th St. & Eighth Ave. and the building is still there but much changed).
