thursday in the hood

A week or so ago I went with ToonMan 
B&H Photo to exchange something 
as we walked back to the subway 
I noticed the 'writing on the wall': 
Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite.

I had to find out what the heck that meant so
 .. yup .. 
I Googled and here's what I learned

to read about it 
The Manhattan Center on 34th Street 
Eighth and Ninth Avenues.


  1. King Kalakaua was a mason.

    Think I'll post one of their buildings too!

  8. I'll have to show this to Cdub. His Dad was a Mason and he's a Mason. A member of two different lodges.
    Heres a link of rememberance for Cdub's dad.

  9. I was going to say it was a Masonry building...but I didn't know all that other history--quite fascinating.

    How was B&H? I've bought a lot of stuff there via the Internet...
