Good guess, but no. Sorry!

Amityville?

Brrr! But good for you for thinking outside the box!

Reminds me of the Quaker Meeting House in Flushing.

Whoa--let's hear it for Dolph, who has seemingly come out of nowhere to prevail in this week's Where Was I? contest! The Quaker Meeting House in Flushing (the first non-Manhattan location to be featured in Where Was I?) is known as the oldest house of worship in New York State and the second oldest Quaker meeting house in the country. George Washington and William Penn both visited the meeting house, which is still being used for meetings. Use the preceding link to learn more about this rare local example of "a typical 17th century ecclesiastical frame structure of medieval design," as the National Park Service once put it.

Across from the meeting house on Northern Boulevard is another notable but contrasting structure: Flushing Town Hall. This grand Romanesque Revival structure, restored in 1995, presents musical programs and art exhibits on a regular basis. Last night jazz artist Freddie Hubbard performed there; this weekend it is home to the Asian Expressions festival, which includes a performance by Slant tonight.

Thanks David, that was sort of a high hard one for me since I've spent a lot of time in Flushing. Applied for jobs twice across the street at Flushing Town Hall ... unsuccessfully.

Oh, and I really like the jigsaw entries.
