Hourslong lines snaked around sidewalks in New York City this weekend as many citizens took advantage of their first-ever opportunity to vote for president before Election Day.⠀ ⠀ Mirroring a rush across the U.S. by voters who want to make sure their ballot is counted, voters turned out in the early morning hours Saturday at many of the 88 early-voting locations across the city’s five boroughs.⠀ ⠀ Poll workers helped people follow social-distancing guidelines once they entered the buildings, and they also wiped down voting stations. Hand sanitizer was readily available; large stickers were placed 6 feet apart on the floor; and masks were available for those not wearing their own. But poll workers couldn’t do anything about crowds overflowing on sidewalks that they shared with passing pedestrians.⠀ ⠀ “The camaraderie in line, regardless of who you’re voting for, was so enthralling,” said Edwin Forman, who said he was willing to wait to vote in person because he worried whether his mail-in ballot would be delivered and counted. “We didn’t talk about who we were going to vote for, but we talked about how important voting is.”⠀ ⠀ Early voting in New York state ends on Nov. 1, the Sunday before Election Day.⠀ ⠀ Read more at the link in our bio.⠀ ⠀ 📷: @agatonphoto for @wsjphotos

Composer Danny Elfman, who has created scores for many dark and unusual films, such as Tim Burton’s “Beetlejuice” and “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” has long been a collector of the weird and the wonderful.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ It all began in Mali, where he bought his first skeleton, carved from a single bone, while on a trip after graduating high school. Now, the longtime Los Angeles home he shares with his wife, actress Bridget Fonda, is packed with such oddities, from 19th-century taxidermy to religious artifacts to bones. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ “I have so much stuff,” @dannyelfman said. “Every space I have is filled everywhere. I can’t get enough shelf space, table space and wall space.”⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ His unusual universe is on display for the first time, as the 1920s mansion in the Hancock Park neighborhood of L.A. comes on the market for $14.6 million. The six-bedroom, 8,346-square-foot home has many original details: elaborate carved-stone fireplaces, decorative columned doorways and gilded coffered ceilings. The piece de resistance: a large ballroom with dramatic vaulted ceilings. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Read more at the link in our bio.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ 📷: @damon_c for @wsjrealestate

Clark Daily, 56, grew up with gearhead brothers who always had a lineup of cars they were working on at their house. The first time he saw an Alfa Romeo was when one of his brothers brought one home when he was a kid.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ "I was smitten. I’m still smitten with Alfas. Even the logo I find fascinating, as it tells a story that goes back hundreds of years," he says. "It has the traditional cross of Milan and the symbol of a ruling family of Milan during medieval times." ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ The 1967 Alfa Romeo Duetto Spider pictured here is one of the most famous Alfa models ever made. It’s the model that Dustin Hoffman drove in the movie “The Graduate.” Around the time Alfa first unveiled this model in 1966, the company had a public naming contest, and the name Duetto won. It means, literally, duet, signifying a car built for two.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ The 3-D graphic artist living in Maitland, Fla. bought his Duetto in 2005 for $3,000 from an older woman who had let it sit in her garage for about 10 years so nothing was really working. He had to rebuild some of the engine, the carburetors, the brakes, the electrical. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ "One of the things I love about the car is how it represents classic European design from an era before there were so many restrictions," he says.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Read more at the link in our bio.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ 📷: @betsyehansen for @wsjphotos
