The name should be "Club Acela", and it is Amtrak's first-class lounge. I experienced it several years ago at 30th Street Station, and I was favorably impressed. I recall riding down in the elevator with our luggage straight to the platform (we were bound for Atlanta on the "Cardinal", and this was before it got the "Club Acela" name. I forget what it was called at the time - "Metropolitan Lounge", maybe?) There may have been little hors d'oeuvres, and there was certainly comfortable furniture.

This is a Jewish historic and sacred site, run as a synagogue out in the open air by Orthodox Jews. The wall itself is ancient; it was built by King Herod more than 2000 years ago as part of a Second Temple expansion. The Muslims later added to the wall. Being old, there are numerous cracks between the stones, and so people put little notes in between the cracks. The plaza itself is mostly of 20th century origin; a neighborhood was bulldozed by the Israeli military in order to accommodate an expected large number of Jews in the wake of the Six-Day War in the 1960s. The wall has its fair share of controversies, including the Orthodox domination of the site. More liberal Jews are used to praying with others of both sexes; the Orthodox are used to praying with only members of their own sex. Thus, there is a divider and men and women are supposed to pray in their own sections. Also, women are expected to wear what the Orthodox rabbis consider to be feminine clothes, a notion not everybody agrees with. Furthermore, Muslims on the Temple Mount often consider the whole thing, the wall included, to be their site, and they occasionally raise a stink about the Jews praying below. Nonetheless, it's a landmark, and people SHOULD go.

This appears to have been the Pathmark of the Old Bridge shooting, where Terence Tyler killed Cristina LoBrutto, Bryan Breen, and himself at 4 am in an attempted mass shooting/ suicide. I cannot vouch for the service or quality; nonetheless, I thought people might want to know of the notoriety of the site.

This would've been one of the least conspicious projects of our military had it not been for conspiracy rumorists. LOL conspiracy theories. The "HAARP did all the earthquakes" theory belongs in the same basket as "Earth Changes", "Bush/Jews/Illuminati did 9/11", and "the Mafia killed JFK". Oh yeah, and "2012 apocalypse". Come on. At least the Millennium computer bug represented a legitimate fear! But then again, anything mysterious or "secret" leads to wild rumors or storytelling. Such as HAARP. (As if looking into Russia's bathroom and spoiling her privacy wasn't sneaky enough...) Oh yeah, "11 out of 42 people found this helpful". And I wasn't one of them. :-)

Facilities and service are likely to be much better than they were when this site was in its heyday. Back then, of course, this was a Nazi concentration camp, and so facilities and service were deliberately made miserable. Now, however, it is a museum and a ruin, and so conditions have improved accordingly. The appeal is, of course, excellent. This is an infamous site, and infamous sites as well as famous one should have excellent appeal. So I urge people to go and visit one of the most infamous historical sites of the Second World War, Auschwitz-Birkenau, the grave of a million people, most of whom were Jewish.

The Tomb of the Patriarchs is a Judeo-Christian-Islamic holy site, dedicated to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. (It is unknown why the current congregations there do not include Christians, but the fact is that one side is a mosque and the other is a synagogue.) I left off one star because of religious segregation and the inability of religions to get along with one another that led to that segregation. Like: Jews, Muslims; Dislike: Synagogue/Mosque segregation

Wow, a parking lot big enough to have two trolley stops. Can you say "overkill"?
