Glendale & Ridgewood Life go 'Behind Houdini's Final Resting Place'

Our good friends Dorothy Dietrich and Dick Brookz of the Houdini Museum in Scranton grace the cover of the October 2013 issue of Glendale & Ridgewood Life. The magazine features writings and photography by residents of the Glendale and Ridgewood communities in Queens, New York.

Of course, one of those "residents" is Houdini himself. The great magician is buried in Machpelah Cemetery in Ridgewood, and in this issue Dorothy Dietrich has penned an article about the history of the grave site, the history of Houdini and the Society of American Magicians (whose emblem graces the exedra), and her own efforts to keep the grave in a condition worthy of the Master Mystifier. It's a terrific article with some nice photos; and congrats to Dorothy and Dick for making the cover!

Glendale & Ridgewood Life is published in a printed edition and online. You can read the online version via THIS LINK.
