He arrived in New York City from Williamsburg, Va., where the complexities of American history are on full display. Give yourself more than eight hours to walk the length of Manhattan. I learned this on a recent crisp Sunday when my partner, Maggie, and I set off on a hike from Battery Park on Manhattan’s southern tip, with the goal of reaching Fort Tryon Park, about 12 miles away, by sunset.

Candice Williams The Detroit News Published 12:15 AM EST Feb 11, 2019 Hamtramck — Zlatan Sadikovic wanted to take a leap in life. The Huntington Woods resident was looking for a place he could afford in an urban environment where he could live and work. Sadikovic found it in a 3,000-square-foot rundown building on Jos. Campau. After two years and a complete overhaul, he opened up a coffee shop, Oloman Cafe, in late 2016. “I’m happy being here,” Sadikovic said while standing by floor-to-ceiling windows in his loft overlooking Hamtramck’s downtown. “I plan to stay here a long time.

Supported by ByRaphael Minder Dec. 8, 2018 MADRID — The Spanish city of Cádiz will undertake what some may see as a Sisyphean task: relocating 5,000 pigeons hundreds of miles away after a complaint that the birds are driving away tourists from the terraces of cafes in the most visited part of the southern port city. Carrier pigeons probably date back to ancient Persia. But under a plan announced last month by Cádiz officials, the pigeons themselves will be carried: They will be captured and transported next year to a thinly populated countryside location in eastern Spain. There, they will find a new home in a dovecote near the town of Ribarroja del Turia.
