In the now traditional fashion of treating the whole planet in terms of being environs -albeit distant of Perth, BSWAM presents Amenia NY. Once again I’m not entirely certain if BSWAM understands what worst is vis a vis here. Amenia seems like the kind of place we might say, “If only Kalamunda was like this.” And, “Well this is quite nice.” But in any case, BSWAM says…
Greetings! Today we’ll be visiting the borderline quaint village of Amenia NY. It’s where all the proles who can’t afford nearby Millbrook have been hiding.
The local Italian eatery has helpfully painted the trunks of the trees int he parking lot white so if you over-imbibe you don’t hit them the very first thing.
Among Amenia’s two cultural attractions is the local drive-in theater, to be seen in the background here.
Amenia has a well-preserved main street lined with quaint gingerbread houses. For this reason, the local gas station has tried to blend in.
The houses themselves are quite charming and would be more so had they not been evidently smeared with condiments.
“Do we have any mustard left?” “No.”
This house has not been restored.
They are, however, redecorating.
You STILL can’t spell theatre. Jeez!
Can you do Bangall NY next ?
Not much to see there. The proverbial speed bump with a zip code.
In other words , it is just like Armenia … But a much more evocative place name , no ?
Not particularly. When Coxsackie is just up the street. So to speak.
Were that drive-in in Australia, I’d quote Khe Sanh.
