Iconic Seven Seas property for sale on Nagawicka Lake

Today we learned that Seven Seas, 1807 Nagawicka Rd. in Hartland, has been put on the market. The news, first reported in the Waukesha Freeman, was prompted by hardships caused by the loss of business during the COVID-19 pandemic.

And, over the course of the past 39 years, Seven Seas has not only been a popular lakeside destination for dinners, brunches and Friday Night fish fry; but it has played host to countless events, including weddings and rehearsal dinners overlooking Nagawicka Lake.

An Iconic New York Hotel Is Closing Its Doors: What It Means for Real Estate Investors

It’s no secret that hotels have been struggling since the start of the coronavirus outbreak. Travel restrictions and safety concerns have led to unprecedented vacancies, and while some hotels may have enough cash reserves to sustain themselves through an extended downturn, others may have no choice but to permanently close their doors.

Such is the case for New York City’s famed Roosevelt Hotel, which has become yet another casualty of the pandemic. The iconic hotel, which has been around since 1924, announced in October that it will be shutting down at some point this year. And that’s a harsh blow for New York City hotels in particular.

A sobering turn of events

The Roosevelt hotel, located minutes from New York City’s famed Times Square and Grand Central Terminal, has been a huge part of the city’s history. In fact, it served as the election headquarters for Gov. Thomas Dewey when

Iconic Alfa Romeo B.A.T. Concept Cars Are for Sale, Together

It takes just a glance to realize any of these Alfa Romeo B.A.T. concept cars are incredibly important to both the company’s history and to automotive design. Gaze on all three together and that impression deepens, as does one’s appreciation for their designer, Bertone’s Franco Scaglione. Learn they’re not scattered in various museums or secreted away in private collections and that all three are available in a single, unprecedented auction, and you might conclude you’re looking at a once-in-a-lifetime event.

One goal was to attain high speeds using modest—or by modern standards, anemic—engines. The numbering system is a little obtuse, but B.A.T. 5 debuted in 1953, B.A.T. 7 in ’54, and B.A.T. 9d in ’55. As for aerodynamics, B.A.T. 5 managed a claimed 0.23

Good morning, L.A.

With the Presidential election a little more than two weeks away (YUP!), protesters marched through downtown L.A. to voice their dissatisfaction with the Trump administration, and their hope that he’ll be voted out of office.

The event was a special edition of the annual Women’s March, and local activists joined other groups across the nation. My colleague Josie Huang, who covered the protest, reported that women towards the front of the group were dressed as handmaids from the TV adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s novel, The Handmaid’s Tale. The costumes were likely a nod to Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett, who has been a member of a religious group, People of Praise, that uses the moniker “handmaid” to describe some women in its ranks.
