The Jewish American poet Emma Lazarus saw the statue as a beacon to the world. A poem she wrote to help raise money for the pedestal, and which is carved on that pedestal, captured what the statue came to mean to the millions who migrated to the United States seeking freedom, and who have continued to come unto this day.

For nearly a century, Dolle’s has been serving up caramel corn and salt water taffy. Dolle’s began in 1926 and moved to its present location in 1927. During the storm of 1962, the 3,500 pound taffy machine fell through the floor and into the sand below. The machine was rescued and is still in use today. Before air conditioning, candy shops would make chocolate only in the fall, winter or spring and then fall back on brittles, caramel corn and other treats in the summertime. Thankfully, you can buy delicious chocolate all summer at Dolle’s but buying this picture will give you joy without all the calories!

We know it doesn’t feel like Springtime outside, but it is coming soon and so are the Cherry Blossoms in Washington DC! You must be quick to see them though because while they are stunningly beautiful they are also very delicate and the blossoms don’t last long. If you don’t make it to Washington this year to see them then you can always buy a Patricia Palermino original depiction of Jefferson’s monument and the tidal basin with the cherry trees in full bloom!
