Silver City Gets a Full Page in the New York Times

NOB HILL--Last Friday the NYT featured Silver City in its "36 Hours" segment. They outline several things they did there beginning at 5 p.m. on a Friday and ending at 9 a.m. Sunday. What a great way to organize a little info about a town.

And Silver City is a GREAT place to visit. It is one of our favorite places. It is in the center of so many things in the southern half of the state, like the Gila Cliff Dwellings, the Gila and Aldo Leopold Wilderness Areas, Pino Altos, the Black Range, and Palomas, Mexico. Speaking of Mexico, it is only about 3 hours from Casas Grandes, Paquime, and Mata Ortiz, home of Juan Quezada and all that pottery.

The NYT article did omit a couple of our favorite spots: the Dos Baristas coffee house (they have a picture of it but don't mention it) and the Palace Hotel.
