The storm somehow blew off Boston leaving behind no more than a dusting of snow and warmer temperatures, but it's still blustery.

The newly released photos of the World Trade Center attacks on 9/11/01 are just astounding.

They were taken by Greg Semendinger, a New York City detective, flying in the only helicopter allowed in the NYC airspace near the towers that had a photographer on board.

Working on Dr. King in Boston. Writing about the South End and Boston of the 1950's. Used an Allan Rohan Crite painting, Tire Jumping, a street scene of kids playing in the South End, to illustrate the period.

Also have an article on Mr. Crite himself in the works, just begun.

His townhouse at 410 Columbus Avenue, opposite Charlie's, is under renovation. Stopped and checked the building permits in the window. It was pulled by Jackie Cox-Crite, his widow. I wonder if she's going to reopen the Institute?
