  1. Grats, and interesting. But how come you don’t take the photos for your articles in the WSJ?

  2. Interesting stuff Nick. Gourmet and a ghost, can’t beat that combination.

  3. You’ve been resurrected Nick! Great article and so far as a venue,
    Wall Street Journal still “rates!”

  4. Congratulations!! I love stuff like this.

  5. What a weird story. How does a guy who lives in a boarding house afford Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr as his attorneys?

  6. Well done, Nick. Well done indeed. I hope the WSJ gives you more assignments.

    Now to convince my wife we need to dine at Manhattan Bistro, without letting her know about the ghost stories. Maybe on Monday.
