you make me feel so young

I study Bronx rocks. 

According to, the Bronx is made of Fordham Gneiss, a billion year old metamorphic rock.

Yes. A Billion.

Metamorphic means it changed over time from heat and pressure 
kinda like coal pressed into a diamond. 

It sparkles.

So it is a miracle that you can actually go see a vestige of something a billion years old, right here in the Bronx.

It has not been built upon nor chipped away for foundation. It’s an original piece of the continent above the dirt line.

For sure, it’ll be sold and built on soon. 

So make the trip and gaze upon a billion year old object!

You’ll feel so much younger.
