A Poet's Home


"Simplicity is the glory of expression."
~ Walt Whitman

There are so many places to visit on Long Island. There are so many historical figures who were born and raised here. Sometimes we're so used to hearing their names we forget how special it is that we can visit their homes and appreciate their work at anytime. 
Today we decided to give appreciation to Walt Whitman, a wonderful poet raised here on Long Island. Taking a little time out of our day to look at the home he was raised in and remember his work was a nice and very peaceful experience. 
If you're ever in the area, I recommend giving it a tour.
