Thanks to The Time Travel Mart and 826LA. 

826 National is a nonprofit organization that provides strategic leadership, administration, and other resources to ensure the success of its network of eight writing and tutoring centers. 826 centers offer a variety of inventive programs that provide under-resourced students, ages 6-18, with opportunities to explore their creativity and improve their writing skills. We also aim to help teachers get their classes excited about writing. Our mission is based on the understanding that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention, and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success. Last year our tutoring centers — located in Ann Arbor, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington, DC — served over 29,000 students.

  • HUGE Serling Fan. Also a fan of New York (not the City) writers. Have you done Washington Irving? He lived in Tarrytown (Sleepy Hollow) BUT he was influenced by a spot in Kinderhook, NY. To this day (2014), the school district is called Ichabod Crane because Washington Irving visited the area and based his character on a Columbia County teacher. In modern times, the school teams are called "The Riders" and the mascots still have their heads on because throwing pumpkins from cranially challeneged horse gallopers would be bad sportmanship.
