"Are you here for the Walt Whitman family reunion?"

I headed east on Saturday from NYC to Long Island. The hotel was right around the corner from the Walt Whitman birthplace so decided to pay the homestead a visit.

Walked into the visitor center

"Are you here for the reunion?"


"Walt Whitman family reunion? Are you a Whitman?"

"Um, no"

But, for $5 I got a Walt Whitman family reunion magnet. Didn't get a chance to have a photo taken with the impersonator. Just the back of his head.
