I remember 2 stories that was published in Popular Science when I was a child, excuse me if it isn't exact as I haven't read it for about 30 years.
The first one was a about a husband and wife that was picking flowers in a small park in a large city (I think it was New York) it was nestled between
some big buildings and they said no matter where you looked there was city (with the exception of the patch of grass and the small hill) the husband
wandered to the top of the little hill and was looking down when he noticed the ground change, he looked up and all the building were gone and there
was rolling hills with yellow flowers as far as he could see, he looked back and could see his wife in the distance bending down picking flowers, he
was still at the 'entrance' of whatever he had walked into so he placed a stick where he was and noticed his footprints in the sand between the
flowers, being incredibly brave he started walking and he said he went quite a ways and there was nothing but rolling hills and the yellow flowers, he
thought perhaps he stepped into a time portal (which he said he never believed before) so he turned back, he was scared as now he saw flowers and
hills back towards the direction he had just traveled. He was looking down at his feetprint and came to the stick, he looked up and his wife was just
a few yards away looking around. He said her name and she jumped and asked him where he had been as she had looked up and he had vanished! He looked
back and he saw nothing but buildings and told her what had happened, they followed his prints back and the stick was lying there and his prints
showed where he had crossed and his return prints but the grass and soil was undisturbed beyond that!
Case 2: A man worked in a fair sized town and he drove this paved, rural road every morning on his way to work, one morning he was driving to work and
he noticed his radio went out, at the same time he felt his car hit some bumps in the road. He looked up and saw the road had changed to gravel, he
thought maybe they were doing some construction so he continued driving but noticed all the radio bands were dead, he drove on then suddenly saw a
small building on the right side of the road that he had never seen before in all the years of traveling the road. He said there were two very old
cars parked in front and a sign that simply said "JOE'S" he was trying to figure out what was happening when he noticed the road suddenly turned to
pavement and the radio came back on! He thought about it for a long time before he finally told some friends and they told him he must have
experienced a 'time' slip, so he started doing research to see about what year JOE'S Cafe was there, what he found was there was NEVER a building
on that road, even old-timers that had families their all their life attested to that!
He thought the only 'logical' (he thought, if he could call it logical) was he had slipped into a parallel dimension as without a doubt there was
never a "Joes".
Makes you wonder, if that was true the cars and the name 'Joe' looked like they were from our world but was never there, so maybe there are
different yet similar places in our universe.
