More Good Stuff, Found On The Web

Here’s some more stuff I found while looking for this and that for the Mermaid thing. This time it’s a good blog for and introduction to firearms, a look at lunch from the NYPL, a ton of stuff on the Fulton Fish Market, some gangster related web pages and material on 1920’s and 1930’s kitchens and home stuff.

This blog has more than you ever wanted to know about firearms. Considering how much writers get wrong about guns, this is a useful reference.
