PATH car 143, saved from the ruins of the World Trade Center attack, is to become the centerpiece of a new 9/11 exhibit here at the Trolley Museum. The hard-working volunteers of the museum still need to raise money to recoup the expense to ship the PATH car, then raise $200,000+ needed to create a first-class exhibit that will help people for generations to come learn about and reflect upon the events of 9-11-2001.

Follow the signs to the Historic Rondout Waterfront and the Urban Cultural Park. Make your way to the bottom of Broadway and turn left. We're a quarter-mile down East Strand on the left. Driving time is about 2 hours from Manhattan and 1 hour from Albany. GPS tips When punching our address into your GPS, you may need to enter it fully as 89 East Strand Street. Local people know it as East Strand or even just the Strand and don't think of it as a street. A common GPS error shows that East Strand and Route 9W intersect; they do not! 9W is on a bridge over East Strand. Use Garraghan Drive to turn off 9W.

Perfection? Hint: It’s Warm and Has a SecretBy DAVID LEITEJuly 9, 2008TOO bad sainthood is not generally conferred on bakers, for there is one who is a possible candidate for canonization. She fulfills most of the requirements: (1) She’s dead. (2) She demonstrated heroic virtue. (3) Cults have been formed around her work. (4) Her invention is considered by many to be a miracle. The woman: Ruth Graves Wakefield. Her contribution to the world: the chocolate chip cookie.One day in the 1930s, Mrs. Wakefield, an owner of the Toll House Inn, in Whitman, Mass., 23 miles south of Boston, was busy baking in her kitchen.

Whether by accident or design, her Toll House Chocolate Crunch Cookies delighted her customers and became the culinary mother to an august lineage that almost 80 years later is still multiplying and, in some cases, mutating.Made from nothing more than flour, eggs, sugar, leavening agents, salt, and chocolate, the cookie seems idiot-proof. After all, it’s simple enough that an eighth-grader can make it, right?Not necessarily.“If it was just a matter of a recipe,” said Hervé Poussot, a baker and an owner of Almondine, in Dumbo, Brooklyn, “we’d all be out of business.
