Want to buy a castle?
If your answer is YES, you may have your opportunity to bid on one soon in Binghamton! But buyer beware! While the Gothic revival limestone building, designed by famed New York architect Isaac Perry -- he of the Phelps Mansion and the capitol building in Albany (among other architectural treasures) -- is indeed empty and on the block, it may have more than a few ghosts.....but, good ones!
Does anyone know for certain who did all the "stain glass work" in this Historical site, would you be able to share this information with all of us?

My father José M. Oxholm, Poet, 1927-2004 will always be with us in our hearts and in our minds. His poetry will never be forgotten. He was able to finish another book before his sudden illness and passing although it was not in print.
On 27th of August 2005, I received a copy of my father's last book. "Haikus De Vida y Muerte" dedicated to Cristina Lacasa ("Haikus Of Life And Death") which was published this past year.
A family request- If you knew the works of (José M. Oxholm), won't you please share your thoughts with us all for the record. He dedicated and proclaimed throughout his life and through his works, his native town of Guayanilla, its' people, his memories as a child etc...
Thank You So Much For Your Kindness!
Other comments and stories are on Page: Special People (Orbits.), in my Index, or Poetry Section. Spanish and English Translation on some of his works. So, I share these items with you all. My father would have liked it this way, as in the past.jc
