"The Fuller Building, nicknamed Flatiron for its triangular shape, was built in 1902 at the scissorlike intersection of Broadway and Fifth Avenue. Its unusual shape and central location made it instantly famous, at first derided as an ill-shapen symbol of commercial greed and later extolled as an exhilarating symbol of modernity." Museum of the City of New York


In depth...

Sometimes, a topic that I've touched on in one of my log entries may need a little elaboration, or I may want to put thoughts scattered around many entries together in one place. And so I'll periodically contribute short essays to this site.

For example, I might include an essay on a controversial subject, like the effectiveness of capital punishment. Or I might write a personal essay about growing up or about my philosophy of life or child-rearing.

Writing essays requires a little more work than writing log entries, but it also gives me a chance to really shape and express my thoughts.
