A.M. Links: Eric Garner Protests Close NYC Bridges and Thoroughfares, AG Nominee Loretta Lynch to Oversee Federal Inquiry into Garner’s Death, Satanists Join Florida Capitol’s Holiday Display : Source: Reason.com – Friday, December 05, 2014 Thousands of protesters occupied the streets of New York City again last night in response to a grand jury’s failure on Wednesday to indict the police officer who killed Eric Garner. At times protesters clashed with police and temporarily succeeded in shutting down traffic on both the West Side Highway and the Brooklyn Bridge. "The federal civil rights investigation into the chokehold death of Eric Garner could present a new complication for Loretta E. Lynch's nomination as attorney general, because she will be heading the inquiry as the United States attorney for the Eastern District of New York even as she undergoes scrutiny in the new Republican-controlled Senate." President Barack Obama will nominate Ash Carter to be his new secretary of defense this mornin ...

Isn't it beautiful? One of my fave things to do in New York City is walking across the Brooklyn Bridge.
Our Independence Day in New York City: We walked over the Brooklyn Bridge and enjoyed the view, had delicious pizza in Brooklyn and watched the fireworks right on Hudson River. Usher did a great job putting them together. It was amazing, I had a great 4th of July!
So, last night after work, I walked from Esplanade, Charles St, public garden, Boylston street Apple store, Newbury St and finally took the T at Hynes,, it was a nice walk about 3 miles !! I was thinking about my regular walks in NYC starting from Downtown Brooklyn, crossing the Brooklyn Bridge, then chillin' at New York China Town ! So while thinking about NYC , a man just bumped into me,, asking ,,"Hey are you from New York City" I’m like strange?? did this man just read my mind?? I smiled and said, how did you know??? He smiled back and said,, 'I love New York City, The places, the energy, the people , the Smile,, just like you got such a pretty smile (me) " I'm like ..aww so sweet of you

June 12, 1806. John A. Roebling, who designed the Brooklyn Bridge, was born on this date in 1806. The Brooklyn Bridge was the first steel-wire suspension bridge and also the longest suspension bridge in the world when completed in 1883. Its main span is is 1,596 feet (486 meters). Completed in 1883, it’s one of the oldest suspension bridges in the United States today. The bridge connects the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn across the East River. More than 120,000 vehicles still cross its span each day, according to a New York City official website. Watch, what could be, an old movie from a subway train traveling the bridge:
Happy birthday John Roebling! John Roebling (1806-1869), an Irish immigrant to the United States, revolutionized transportation and infrastructure with his designs for several world famous bridges, most notably New York's Brooklyn Bridge. Often referred to as one of the Seven Industrial Wonders of the World, the Brooklyn Bridge connected the cities of New York and Brooklyn (now both boroughs of New York City) and was the longest suspension bridge in the world from when it opened it 1883 until 1903. Roebling died before the bridge was complete, leaving his son Washington in charge of the remaining construction. Unfortunately Washington himself became incapacitated only a year later after developing decompression sickness while he was inspecting a 'caisson,' the infamous structures used to construct the bridge's base.

Credit New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly with busting mega million cigarette smuggling ring. Tagged Operation Tobacco Road, the operation captured 16 Palestinians including the king pins in the network arrested in New York and Maryland, with connections to the Muslim Brotherhood Blind Sheik Omar Abdel- Rahman and Hamas. One of those ensnared in the raid may have been an accomplice after the fact who supplied the weapon in the 1994 attack on a van crossing the Brooklyn Bridge sprayed with automatic fire. That attack resulted in the death of 16 year old Ari Halberstam All but two of the Palestinians ensnared in the scheme entered the US illegally. The ring had purchased more than $55 million in cigarettes in both Virginia and Maryland and wholesaled the contraband cigarettes to bodegas in the outer boroughs of New York City avoiding more than $80 million in state taxes. A significant portion of the profits may have been funneled to Hamas, to further Jihad. The ...
Brooklyn’s iconic Clock Tower penthouse is currently for sale and by far the most expensive in the borough at $18 million. For their money potential buyers would, of course, expect 360-degree views of the Brooklyn Bridge and New York City. What may come as a surprise however, is the unique way in which the views are framed by working clock faces that grace its four exterior walls. Segmented snapshots of the world’s most recognizable city can be seen between the bold roman numerals, adding dramatic contrast to the white interior. In an effort to capitalize on the incredible views and ensure an even dispersal of natural light, the incorporation of additional glazing has been generous. Fundamentally open plan, the internal living space benefits from both natural light and that reflected by the high-shine finished kitchen. In keeping with an ambience of modern sophistication and in all likelihood, inspiration for the interior approach, the glass panelled steel elevator and staircase than span three levels ...
Four hours ago, I visited New York City! Commonly known as The Big Apple. But I'd rather call it as the "City that Never Sleeps'. First, I went to Statue Of Liberty. I was really fascinated by how it was built. I can't believe that I saw it with my two eyes. For real! Because before I've only seen it in one of the cigarette's commercial. I took some pictures of it. I'll upload it later. Then after that, I went to Empire State Building where King Kong managed to go to the top of it. So I went inside and I was on the elevator from the ground floor up to the 73rd floor. Well, to tell you you honestly, its a bit tiring to stand . An act of ignorance. XD. And then after that, I decided to visit Fulton Ferry Pier (near Brooklyn Bridge) and have some fresh air there. Its quite relaxing there. Then, one of my colleagues told us to go to Cafe Habana just to try the famous coffee there. And it's not a big disappointment to go there. Their coffee is really good compared to coffee here onboard. :D. Finally, we visit ...

News you can use... Boast-Worthy Kitchen Amenity That Isn’t New: The Disposal The New York Times By ELIZABETH A. HARRIS Published: February 4, 2013 The online listing for a condominium in Brooklyn Heights advertises five bedrooms and wide-open views of the Brooklyn Bridge, the Statue Of Liberty and the Manhattan Skyline for $4.995 million. A 19th-floor two-bedroom on East 59th Street offers floor-to-ceiling windows, a gas fireplace and two balconies; corporations and pieds-à-terre welcome, $2.495 million. And a penthouse on Greenwich Street offers a 500-square-foot terrace and a pet spa for $6.195 million. In addition to large price tags, these listings have something else in common. They all puff out their chest to announce: This apartment has a garbage disposal. This little appliance of convenience has been widely available in much of the country since the middle of the last century, but residential garbage disposals were, in fact, illegal in New York City until 1997. And although the laws have chang ...

Today in Science History - On January 2, 1870, construction began on the Brooklyn Bridge to cross the East River, New York City, NY. The 13 year project remains the world's only stone-towered, steel cabled bridge. Twice the size of the Niagara Suspension Bridge and four times the longest non-extension spans then attempted, the total length of this colossal structure is 6,927 ft.
There are over 975,000 buildings in New York City. The history of skyscrapers in New York City began with the completion of the World Building in 1890; the structure rose 348 feet (106 m). Though not the city’s first high-rise, it was the first building to surpass the 284-foot (87 m) spire of Trinity Church. The World Building, which stood as the tallest in the city until 1899, was demolished in 1955 to allow for the construction of an expanded entrance to the Brooklyn Bridge.

And he also says they may be shutting down power in the Brighton Beach area of New York City. He also states that if the flooding is terrible, they may be shutting steam service below 14th street.
I was in New York City for the first time yesterday with my Dad and Stepmom. What a blast!! We were there for the International Photo Expo (which was great) but I also got to see Time Square, Bryant Park and Grand Central Station. We took a water taxi and saw the Brooklyn Bridge, Statue Of Liberty, Ground Zero, Ellis Island, etc. Problem is I got up at 4:45am, then didn't get to bed until 1:00am and Mason decides to get up at 5:00am. It's going to be a long day!! Pictures to come.

Just got back from a week in New York City. Walked a lot, saw two plays, two musicals, boat rides to Liberty Island (Statue closed) and Ellis Island, and a twilight cruise around Manhatten, went to several museums (including the MOMA, Met, Cloisters, Fraunces Tavern, and Guggenheim), tourist sites (including the Empire State Building, Top of the Rock and the 9-11 memorial), walked across Central Park and the Brooklyn Bridge (not on the same day), food tour in the East Village, walking tour in Greenwich Village, went through the Garment district and was overwhelmed, and ate a lot of good food.
Whenever I think about New York City, I think about the Met and Central Park and the Brooklyn Bridge. Those, I suppose, are her three beauties: her art, her parks, and her History.

Day 16 of our 30-day exercise challenge done: Had to take advantage of this beautiful and sunny day in New York City by riding my bicycle. Covered about 22 miles, riding from Downtown Brooklyn to Upper Manhattan and the George Washington Bridge and back.

No matter, on my bike is one of the ways I feel a complete sense of peace and freedom. Gotta do the things we love in life no matter what.
The 10 things Yossi Benaltabet likes to do best in New York City • Jogging around The Reservoir in Central Park every morning (anti clockwise of course). • Buying second hand hardcover books in Strand Bookstore (world’s largest used bookstore). • Having a hot pastrami sandwich and a New York cheesecake at Carnegie Deli or Katz’s (“where Harry met Sally”). • Having a 24 ounce (680 grams) bone in rib-eye steak with creamed spinach in Wolfgang’s Steakhouse. • Ordering a double shot, skimmed milk (I had a very large steak yesterday) cappuccino at Starbucks and hooking up to the internet (contributing to Starbucks making more bucks). • Crossing the Brooklyn bridge by foot from Manhattan to Brooklyn, strolling around at the Brooklyn Heights Esplanade admiring views of Lower Manhattan (no, you cannot see the Twins anymore), having pizza at Grimaldi’s under the bridge on the Brooklyn side (if there isn’t a long queue of Japanese tourists) and walking back to Manhattan. • Spending a Su ...
I Am Legend is a 2007 American post-apocalyptic science fiction thriller film directed by Francis Lawrence and starring Will Smith. It is the third feature film adaptation of Richard Matheson's 1954 novel of the same name, following 1964's The Last Man on Earth and 1971's The Omega Man.[2] Smith plays virologist Robert Neville, who is immune to a man-made virus originally created to cure cancer. He works to create a remedy while defending himself against humans mutated by the virus. Warner Bros. began developing I Am Legend in 1994, and various actors and directors were attached to the project, though production was delayed due to budgetary concerns related to the script. Production began in 2006 in New York City, filming mainly on location in the city, including a $5 million scene[3] at the Brooklyn Bridge, the most expensive scene ever filmed in the city at the time. I Am Legend was released on December 14, 2007 in the United States and Canada, and opened to the largest ever box office (not counting for ...

Ah New York City, I can hear the siren calls of your pastrami, your corned beef, your roast beef yearning to be freed from your deli case, that doesn't taste like it's been soaked in some weird other flavorings. Bagels that are boiled and then baked. Knishes, there are at least a few of you with my name on them, too, and Grey's Papaya hot dogs, I'm coming for you as well. Chinese food that is amazing and delivers, hear my clarion call! When I'm not eating, Staten Island Ferry, I'm taking a ride on you just for the *** of it, preferably late at night or close to dawn. Brooklyn Bridge, I'd like to rendezvous with you at some point and walk across to Brooklyn from Lower Manhattan, and then back again. *** s Kitchen, I'll be visiting just to see what's going on in my old stomping grounds. And that's just the first couple of days. :)

"In July 1899, a large number of New York City newsboys refused to distribute the papers of Joseph Pulitzer, publisher of the World, and William Randolph Hearst, publisher of the Journal. The strikers demonstrated across the Brooklyn Bridge for several days, effectively bringing traffic to a standstill[10], along with the news distribution for most New England cities. Several rallies drew more than 5,000 newsboys, complete with charismatic speeches by strike leader Kid Blink.[11] So named because he was blind in one eye, Kid Blink was a popular subject among competing newspapers such as the New York Tribune, who often patronizingly quoted Blink with his heavy Brooklyn accent intact, attributing to him such sayings as "Me men is nobul." (My men are noble) Blink and his strikers were the subject of violence, as well. Hearst and Pulitzer hired men to break up rallies and protect the newspaper deliveries still underway.[12] During one rally Blink told strikers, "Friens and feller workers. Dis is a time which ...
This morning, I stood 32 floors above the city and looked towards the Brooklyn Bridge. Above, the moon hung around after daybreak. And at my right, The Empire State Building pointed upwards. Perhaps pointing to the thousands lost when my city changed. I miss my old skyline. I miss the Towers and the pride I felt when I said, "I've been there before." Behind me is the uptown scene. Morning glows in an orange hue against the glassy skyscrapers. Below, I can hear the streets begin to hustle as delivery trucks make their early stops. And slowly, bodies emerge from the subway systems and head to their daily gigs. There's no place like New York City. There's nothing like Central Park or the fountain at Columbus Circle. Lately, my hours have been crazy. The other day I walked to Lexington but passed through some of the theater streets for a touch of inspiration. I may not have much in this crazy corner of mine. But I do have dreams I have some ideas and a pen to write them down I have this city ...and I have you ...

In addition to the Smithsonian Castle, iconic American landmarks that dimmed their lights included the Las Vegas Strip; the Brooklyn Bridge, Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, UN headquarters and Broadway theater marquees in New York City; as well as Mount Rushmore, San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge, Seattle’s Space Needle, St. Louis’s Gateway Arch, Chicago’s Sears Tower and Niagara Falls.
Oof... New York City? I was born in Mineola, Long Island. Grew up in Putnam County, 60 miles north of Manhattan. Rode the Brewster North Railroad into Grand Central on teenage weekends.

I have no great desire to return. I only miss the pizza.
