351. Theme 257 ~Regal~

I think this stately old water tower in Weehawken, NJ, has a regal look to it.  Here’s some info:

The Weehawken Water Tower was built in 1883 as part of the Hackensack Water Company Complex, and inspired by Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, Italy. The Tower is cited on the Federal Maritime Chart as the “Red Tower”, and serves as warning to ships traveling south along the Hudson River that they are approaching New York Bay.  The site was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.

If anyone remembers, one of my earlier posts was also from Weehawken….the Alexander Hamilton & Aaron Burr duel.  The page is HERE.

350. Theme 70 ~Culture~

Since food is such an important part of every culture, I thought I’d highlight one of the most popular foods of the Turkish culture….doner kabob, which originated in the 19th century.  Actually, this is what it looks like before it’s sliced.  That’s one of the chefs, Nedim, who was probably wondering why this crazy American woman wanted to take a photo of him & his doner!

We went to my favorite Turkish Restaurant which also happens to have a butcher shop and grocery store….a Halal Market.  So, here’s a small sampling of Middle Eastern groceries…….
