If they had been living right now in this moment then all the four greatest artists of America would have been neighbors. We are talking about the world class poet Edna St. Vincent Millay and authors Edith Wharton and Hermon Melville as well as the painter & illustrator Norman Rockwell. The city has been the inspiration to many creative minds and as it is said that there is magic in the air.

Madrid, New Mexico
Soon after the coal and oil ran out in 1950’s the inhabitants also left the location. The wall street journal once listed an ad for sale the entire region for just $250,000 but no one purchased so it became a ghost town. However, the ancient buildings and architecture somehow survived and artists turned it into beautiful colonies of gallery and studios. From handmade cowboy boots to hats and native artifacts are famous in this region. For those who are confused, it is MA-did not the Madrid in Spain.
Delray Beach, Florida
During the 20th century, the Delray Beach was a dying beach with no active shops and tourist future.

Pineapple grove is a happening place in Delray and the old industrial warehouse has been converted into artist’s alley.
