A BITE TO EAT

davy jones  SEA FOOD house
1279 Sixth Avenue,  At 51st. Street
RADIO CITY 19,  NEW YORK
Article reposted from "the village VOICE" Blogs.

No, not Davy Jones of the Monkees. Davy Jones as in Davy Jones' Locker, the place in the depths where you legendarily go when drowned at sea. Despite the downer name, the postcard makes it look like a decent place for fish and crustaceans, along the lines of the Oyster Bar at Grand Central. In the magazine The Rotarian (1959), critic Fred A. Roozen in his "Gourmet in Gotham" column writes, "It seems that of all the many seafood restaurants, each is more famous than the other. One of the best is Davy Jones Sea Food House ..." Craig Claiborne in not so kind: "The broiled fish dishes are smothered in paprika to make up for improper grilling. A waiter denied that the sticky orange stuff over the salad greens was patented glue, while at another table one of his colleagues was explaining to a couple that he didn't know if the fish was fresh or not and offhand he couldn't think of anyone who might know."

FABULOUS FLORIDA FAVORITES

PARROT JUNGLE MIAMI, FLORIDA
No longer exhists.   It moved to Watson Island between Miami and Miami Beach.    Recently it became known as Jungle Island.   It's sad when such a charming place as Parrot Jungle is gone.  Nothing can ever really replace it.  The original gardens and flock of Flamingos were as much a part of the spectacle as were the parrots.

I would really love to see this magnificent view in winter.  It truly must be awsome.  I hate cold weather unfortunately.  Maybe I would like to visit in the summer first.

From the dates on these messages I gather The lights were turned off during at least part of W.W. II.  Can anyone varify that?  If yes can you tell us why?  Could it have been to save power or hide the location?   Would like to have any information you can share with us.

MAID OF THE MIST BY ILLUMINATION
SEEING NIAGARA FALLS FROM "MAID OF THE MIST."  One of the most interesting experiences of a visit to Niagara is a trip under the Falls, by means of Steamer
Maid of the Mist."  The voyagers are swathed in oilskins as a defence from the saturating spray and the spectacle of the mighty volume of water, passing over the precipice 160 feet above, to fall in thunder on the rocks below is as magnificent as it is impressive.
