ALMA HAHN: ‘Leaving zoo reptile house; it makes my skin crawl’

April 4, 2011

Did you follow the adventure of the young Egyptian cobra that apparently slithered out of her confines at the Bronx Zoo? As I write this column, CNN is reporting that she has decided to make her reappearance.
Until a few minutes ago (on Thursday), she had not been seen since Friday, March 25. Zoo officials kept assuring the public that everything was OK; she would come out from wherever she was hiding when she got hungry. No word yet on where she spent her “vacation.”

BRENT DAVIS/Resident Boomer: There’s a time machine under mom’s house

April 4, 2011

Jules Vern imagined a wildly elaborate machine. Physicists theorize with numbers. Engineers tinker with plans.

All I could remember when I wrote the prior piece was that the movie house had a buff brick exterior and that it was near the big Sears & Roebuck store in that part of the city.
