There are those who mock the importance of the public sector. Often when they do, they take direct aim at institutions of knowledge such as our public libraries. Personally, I don’t want to live in a world when a place where much of our collective knowledge is curated, cataloged and disseminated is considered unimportant.

The Club Car opened its doors a few months ago in Mamaroneck NY. The restaurant has received rave reviews. But for me, it is the restoration of the magnificent 1888 Romanesque building that steals the show.
