Okay, the telephone was invented by Bell and Italy is as eternal as Rome. Wrong candle wax breathe. The Garibaldi-Meucci Museum was the home of Antonio Meucci, the true inventor of the telephone(who manufactured candles for a living), and a refuge to Giuseppe Garibaldi, the legendary hero who championed the unification of Italy. He invented the phone so he could keep in touch with his wife. She couldn't make it around the house very well while he moved about keeping his men working on the candles. We will at least see the proof from the outside. The home and land around it is currently owned by the Sons of Italy. Next is the Alice Austin House with a Drop Dead beautiful view of the harbor. Her contribution is a lifetime of photography and a her house preserved from the past for us to see today. We all take pictures now thanks to our phones. Hmm. Next, if the view from Alices isn't enough, the commanding heights of Ft. Wadsworth or maybe the panaramic views between it and Miller Field. In any case, we'll do a view at NYC Bikes on our way to Paulies Pizza. Yeah!! And let's not play down the views on the ferry rides both ways.
