Brothers Justin and Daniel take a break from farming in Millersburg, Ky., to watch the traffic go by on Route 68. I met them on a road trip while driving north from Atlanta. Porch sitting is a sign of a healthy neighborhood. A recent New York Times story said porch sitting was back in style in the formerly ravaged Astor Row section of Harlem. Socialite Brooke Astor, now dead, had helped with the revitalization by providing $1.7 million to restore many of the street's decayed wooden porches.
