Divorce - There's A Time Limit On Sympathy
The gloomy title of this chapter is not only true: it ought to be. A widow or divorcee may be entitled to be a weeping willow for a time, but there comes a day when feeding on memories is an indulgence.
Divorce - Tomorrow Shouldn't Be Yesterday
There are two schools of thought as to whether a newly made widow or divorcee should stay right where she is, carrying on as much as usual as she can, or whether she should move to other surroundings.
Divorce - Be Busy Or Be Sorry
The happiest people in the world are almost invariably the ones with a lot of friends. There are some exceptions, but not all who seem to be are really happy.
Divorce - The Odd Man And The Extra Woman
A question that will inevitably arise sooner or later in your new life is whether it is to be a purely feminine one or whether a dash of masculine companionship is to be added.
Divorce - So You Were Left Destitute
There are few things that happen in this more-or-less civilized hemisphere that are worse than the experience of a woman who has been well taken care of for years and who suddenly finds herself with-out enough money to live on.
Divorce - You And Mrs. Grundy
Mrs. Grundy, that prim lady who personifies our code of polite manners and customs, is treated with considerable flippancy in these informal days.
Divorce - Are Two Husbands Better Than None?
For we are about to start off with the statement that most widows and a good many divorcees don't want to remarry. Far more men are ready to try again and there are those among them who keep on trying right up to the end.
Divorce - Even Solitary Middle Age Has Its Points
We are not going to claim that the advantages of a solitary life, after you have reached what we will politely call middle age, can compare with the close companionship of a husband.
Divorce - Keep Up With You Grandchild
If you keep your mind up to date, even your grandchildren will like to be with you, to say nothing of other people (which is what really counts in the end, as your grandchildren get busier and busier with lives of their own).

Although New York lags far behind Chicago as a railroad center, if-all methods of arrival and departure are considered, it is undoubtedly the greatest transportation center in the world.
Driving In New York City
The system of traffic lights in New York is one of the worst I have yet seen in any major American city.
New York City Sightseeing
As I have said in several books before, I honestly believe that a ticket on a sightseeing bus gives greater return for the money than almost any other expenditure the traveler can make.
Midtown Manhattan
For sightseeing purposes New York can be divided into various districts, each more or less complete in itself. As by far the greater number of visitors will arrive in the Midtown Neighborhood.
New York City - Around Washington Square
From Union Square a short walk down University Place, or, if you prefer, down Fifth Avenue, one block to the west, will bring you to Washington Square.
New York City - From City Hall Park To The Battery
City Hall Park is the real civic center of New York. The city hall itself, at the northern end of the Park, facing south, is not only the finest example of post-colonial architecture in New York.
New York City - Around And About Central Park
Central Park, a beautifully landscaped tract of 840 acres, stretches two and one-half miles long from 59th to 10th Streets, and half a mile wide from Fifth to Eighth Avenues.
New York City - Riverside Drive And Upper West Side
As far north as 157th Street you will have RIVERSIDE PARK between you and the river. Although it is not a new park, in its present shape it is a monument to the genius of Park Commissioner Robert Moses.

All museums of New York are legion, and in listing and selecting those most likely to interest the visitor I have been somewhat bothered by the question of what constitutes a museum anyway?

Collector's Luck
Even now, as a layman, I present my panacea. If you are dull, if you are unhappy, if you are bored collect!
Stenciled Furniture
Were you ever lucky like me, do you think? Did you ever find a set of stenciled chairs, softly brown and glowing with gold pomegranates and formalized flowers, and all six for six dollars?
Pressed Glassware
Perhaps if I hadn't bought my five-cent sugar-bowls at that Vermont auction I never would have begun to collect pressed glass.
Old Woven Coverlets
Today I have been very happy, and what do you think I have been doing? Mending an old coverlet; a coverlet woven, it is said, before this country of ours was a nation.
