I ventured out only late in the afternoon to get some tile sealant and sticky mouse traps.I will spare you, gentle reader, the details of catching yet another mouse, and there really no need to mention how a friend told me about the humane execution method of drowning the struggling rodent in a bucket of soapy water. No, the average Mulberry Street vistor will have no interest in knowing that the soap does wonders to the surfactant lining those rapid little lungs, but she, in her sensibilities, and if pressed, would admit this does seem more humane than throwing the critter away live, whiskers tucked back, the thin rope of a tail flicking yesterday can of tomato sauce.Instead, I thought, how much better to share the pictures I took as I sauntered around Columbia magnificent urban campus in the slant of the late afternoon sunshine, and later, as I lounged with other Harlem residents at the foot of Grant Tombas we listened to live jazz in the perfect summer evening. One of the most incredible urban spaces in New York City.

Call to revive ‘dying village’ as tourist trapA CHESHIRE village could reinvent itself as a tourist destination after almost a third of its shops announced plans to close.00:00, 13 AUG 2001Updated14:03, 24 JUL 2013Get daily updates directly to your inbox+ SubscribeSee our privacy noticeThank you for subscribing!Could not subscribe, try again laterInvalid EmailA CHESHIRE village could reinvent itself as a tourist destination after almost a third of its shops announced plans to close.Four businesses in Helsby are shutting and at least one more is rumoured to be leaving.Business leaders say the mass exodus from the village’s small row of shops is largely explained by a drastic drop in trade.They say that the village is losing out to the nearby bigger commercial centres such as Frodsham, Ellesmere Port and Chester.Parish councillor David Harwood fears Helsby could become a “dying village” and says tourism is the only future for the village.He explained: “We have Helsby Hill, which is a huge asset, and the footpaths leading to the Sandstone Trail. Helsby is a very picturesque village and by attracting tourists we can boost the local economy.”Visitors can stay in the local pubs which run bed and breakfast. At the moment, it is the only way I can see a future for the village.” His own business, the District Garage, which has operated in Helsby since the 1940s, has recently closed.Other shops set to leave the village include Lawless bakery, Mulberry Florists and animal fodder retailer Griffiths Brothers.He said: “I was sad to go but my reasons for leaving were very much to do with the motor trade, not specifically trade in Helsby.”But sadly a lack of trade is causing big problems.
