The Sheridan House on Puritan Ave in the Forest Hills neighborhood of Queens always stood out as far as memories from childhood go. The NY Times wrote an article about the place after Elizabeth Sheridan passed away this summer. She began decorating her house to honor her husband after he died. It was as excessive as they come, covered in plastic flowers, faux christmas trees, animal figurines and more. Some neighbors complained of it’s garishness but it stood out as a lovely, over the top nod to individualism and devotion in a neighborhood known for strict “standards of taste and design.” It was a technicolor dream in it’s own right.

I am grounded from my trip for a bit as I wait for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation to get their stuff together; it is beyond frustrating to have your plans derailed (or at least put on hold) by someone else. So as I wait, you can check out some pictures below in previous posts from the first portion of my trip – The Great Midwest. The picture above, the second in my “Bleed” series ( a stand in title), was taken last month. It seems somehow fitting for the place I am in. Cross your fingers, I am back on the road next week – New England and Canada.
