Apparently North Elba, is a suburb of Lake Placid, NY because that's where (I thought) we were when I took this. Lake Placid wasn't a scheduled stop on the Great College Road Trip of 2005, but since we were passing so close by, it seemed like some kind of imperative to stop there -- at least for a while. Perhaps only the building bears the name North Elba (can you sell the naming rights to a town hall?) or maybe it's simply that the two towns abut each other so closely that crossing a street takes you from one to the other. (Chapel Hill and Carrboro, NC share an intersection like this.) Wherever it is, it's a nice building. and it's definitely "elsewhere". Even when you think you know where you are.
