Memories from Mind to Sketch Pad

Bob McNulty remembers the R-FH area with etchings. Do you remember the Andrews home on Buena Vista?

Native Fair Havenite Bob McNulty has many good comfort memories of his hometown that he wants to share.

So, the 1977 graduate of has taken many of his fond yesteryear recollections from mind to sketch pad. He has begun drawing landmarks that evoke those good memories of days gone by for his own creative mental health benefit and that of others.

It's his aim to end up having similar pieces commissioned.

In the meantime, McNulty has been remembering and drawing. And when he saw the about the former , which he said was also a favorite of his, he emailed some of his drawings along with thoughts about each. Some are of places, others are of interesting homes — all evoke childhood memories of the area.

McNulty did not draw the Anderson home when it was still standing, but said, “I had to comment as I remembered it and as I remembered other beautiful things about growing up in the area.”

One of those unique, beautiful things in his small, but growing portfolio was an R-FH classmate’s fascinating domicile. In the late 1970s, it was the Andrews family home on Buena Vista Avenue in Rumson.

Many people over the years have noted the uniqueness of the home. It sits right on the edge of the road and looks like old converted stables with a tower clock in the center.

Take a look at McNulty's sketch and the photos. Do you know anything about the old Andrews home or have any fond memories of it or any other old homes in the Rumson-Fair Haven area?

Next week Patch will feature another McNulty drawing.

Jeffrey Sachs, sometimes described as the world's most famous economist, told me he thought adding half a trillion dollars on to http://www.outletcoachstoday.com the deficit without a plan http://www.coachoutletod.com was "rather shocking". He did not feel Obama's http://www.coachs-outletcar.com administration was dealing with the http://www.coachoutletdp.com fundamental problems of a deeply unequal and http://www.coachoutletwo.com under-invested economy, which had exported too http://www.coachfactoryoutletsp.com many jobs abroad."This is not http://www.coachfactoryoutletli.net a country in good shape. We have 15% http://www.coachfactoryoutletce.org of the population in poverty, we have one http://www.coachoutletonlinelc.net in six or one in seven http://www.coachoutletonlinesc.com on food stamps, we have http://www.coachoutletonlinelsa.com about half of our households within at least twice the http://www.louisvuittonoutletct.com poverty line or below, meaning http://www.louisvuittonoutletti.org that we have a staggering share http://www.coachoutletrf.com of America that is financially http://www.coachfactoryonlinebp.com struggling right now."Certainly, it is that sense http://www.coachoutletuser.net of a struggling middle class that has dogged Obama's campaign and given Romney some of his best lines.
