Rome's American Corner disappeared in the early 1970s when urban renewal decimated the core of this town. I'd say many of you posting weren't even born by the early 1970s! However, a "haunting" lead posting by "redrum." Besides that person any of you know where the word "redrum" originated from?(movie title)

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

Do you not realize all these posts are from the same person. Great for Halloween. This person could make a lot of money as a writer.

How do you know all these things? I do believe it all. If you were there for it,you have a great memory. Please tell more. I am very interested.

A bunch of illiterate trash from a rust belt city in the middle of nowhere with access to the internet and way too much free time on their hands.

Now there's a scary story.

Hmm...

American Corner, where James St. and Dominck St. cross. One Corner of the city for the English (James St named after King James of England.) One corner of the city for the Italians (Dominick named after King Dominick of Italy.) The other two corners for the other two prominent nationalities in Rome: German and Polish. What could be more American than this melting pot city? The American Hotel also use to be at this corner. Most of the places named on this thread were on South James St.
Wow

In 1796 Dominick Lynch, the land owner of Rome (Lynchville - AKA Fort Stanwix) said this is Dominick Street, pivoted 90 degrees and said this is James Street (his Son). The only two streets shown on the 1802 map are Dominick and James, nothing to do with Kings. good guess... You are correct about the American Hotel.

You think Kubrick was the first person to see "murder" in a mirror and think of that?
