Lakewood/Howell



this goose really has two legs, but only one foot.

it’s not that big of a creek, really.


the area to the left is a walking path that continues up toward the top and left. you can tell a little better in the next photo.

These are a few of the highlights from the Halloween house, a couple of blocks from here. It was kind of staggering, and these bad photos don’t begin to do it justice.

This is a creek in the park down the street from our house. We walk through the back service entrance to get there, and keep discovering more interesting things each time.

Here are some snapshots of downtown Lakewood and the area. I haven’t labelled them, because they’re just general scene shots. I can tell you that Clifton Avenue has a strong mixture of Orthodox Jewish shops and Mexican ones mixed in with fading but somewhat unique Americana. And the town hall, which I don’t have photos of, boasts some interesting history of the town in the main hall. I got a brochure for visitors from which I will scan a few pictures, just for the fun of it.

This is actually a place called Tov Appliances.

Here’s a Kosher pizza place. Probably good if you’re a vegetarian, as well.

This is most of the Moon Motel. I’d love to see inside, but I suppose it’s pretty much like all the other inexpensive motels. I wonder if Indian people run it? In the midwest, that is very common.

I think this is an odd name for a sushi place, but that might just be me.

Italian ice places are a dime a dozen here, but this one has an especially cute exterior.

This is the first place we ate at here. The owner told me he’s been there for 35 years. But he still has a fairly thick Italian accent.

Interestingly to me, even though a majority of the shops are run by Italian-Americans, or Orthodox Jews, the gas station people still mostly wear turbans. There is also a Mexican area to the south, but I haven’t had an occasion to go that direction yet.
