Weehawken, NJ is a small town on the western shore of the Hudson River. Perched at the top of a cliff, it boasts a magnificent view of Manhattan, and is known for being the site of the famous duel between Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton. Its historic water tower, inspired by the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, glows red and can be seen from New York City. Among its many grand Victorian homes, Weehawken's public library stands out for its beautiful restoration. People enjoy the waterfront for dining, recreation and relaxation. Weehawken also happens to be the place I call home.
The city of Lucknow is known for its heritage structures, the Nawabi style cuisine, its age old history of rulers reflected in the architecture and local culture and more famously for the polite and polished style of speaking fondly called as the Lucknowi Tehzeeb.
"The New-England Boy's Song about Thanksgiving Day" was written by Lydia Maria Child in 1844 for a collection called "Flowers for Children, Volume 2." We know this poem by the popular name "Over the River and through the Woods." Music was written to go along with the poem and it is a common holiday song heard during Thanksgiving and the holiday season. The words were changed to say that the children were going to Grandmother's house when in fact it is Grandfather's house in the poem. Either way, it is a warm way to welcome the holiday season.
