Letter From Editor

Welcome to our websites.

1) Our goal – to provide a source of places for you to explore. We have separated our content into two websites “Special Places to See” and “USA Uncovered.” We love exploring history and architecture. We offer you sample of the unique “special” places along with historical data and pictures. Our hope is for you to explore them yourselves.

2. Special Places to See website – A compilation of aggregated information of public art, museums, historical houses, landmarks and parks (by neighborhood) for New York City and Long Island.

– Another element is an international blog. We plan to discuss our experience outside of the United States.  In the international blogs, we focus on the people we’ve met,  museums we’ve visited, the restaurants we’ve enjoyed. We hope that you will join us to discover interesting places.
