The Keys of the Kingdom On 15 January 2009 US Airways flight 1549 hit a flock of geese. Both engines failed. The plane was flying over New York. Potential disaster loomed. Not only were the 155 occupants on board in danger, but thousands more could have been killed had the plane hit one of New York’s skyscrapers. Captain Chesley B “Sully” Sullenberger III guided the crippled US Airways plane with immense skill and courage. He performed a successful emergency landing on the Hudson River. Not a single passenger died, nor were there any serious injuries. The Mayor of New York City gave to the heroic pilot, who had saved them, the keys to the city. To give someone the keys to a city is an immense privilege. They symbolise access and authority, and are usually given in recognition of some great service to the city. In the New Testament, we see that Jesus is the key holder. The risen Christ says, ‘I am the Living One; I was dead, and behold I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and H ...

November 21, 2014 is the 50th Anniversary of the Opening of the Verrazano Bridge Anti-Italian Bigotry and Prejudice in Brooklyn In 1909 my grandfather and the other Italian immigrants experienced the anti-Italian bigotry and prejudice that was prevalent at that time especially during the Hudson-Fulton Celebration in New York City. The Italians protested passionately the exclusion of the Italian explorer Giovanni da Verrazzano from the exposition. In 1524 Verrazzano was commissioned by the French king, Francis I, to find a passage-way to Asia. He sailed westward, landing in the vicinity of present day North Carolina and then sailed north into the present day Hudson River on his ship La Dauphine. His explorations gave France its claim to the lands in North America. The English explorer, Henry Hudson, didn’t sail into New York Harbor until 1609. Apparently history chose to ignore Verrazzano’s voyage, his explorations, and his discovery of the Hudson River and New York Harbor, and instead credited the dis ...
Learn Our History Today: On November 16, 1776, during the American Revolution, Fort Washington, New York fell to Hessian forces under Lieutenant General Wilhelm von Knyphausen. The last major patriot defensive position on the New York side of the Hudson River, the fall of Fort Washington was absolutely devastating to the American cause. Along with the three thousand men who were captured when the fort fell, all of the cannons, ammunition, and supplies housed in the important fortification were also lost. These supplies were sorely needed by the patriot army of General Washington, which after a series of desperate and deadly battles in and around New York City was now a shadow of its former self. With no defensive fortifications left, and little to no ammunition and supplies, George Washington and his army were now forced into a headlong retreat. Across the state of New Jersey, it was said that one could track Washington’s army simply by following the paths of blood in the snow, and the British certainly ...
I just got back doing a two week run (small cruise ship) from Quebec to New York City via the St. Lawrence, Erie Canal and Hudson River. It was truly a trip surrounded by history. Looking at the citadel from the water gives some impression of the defensive nature of the city of Quebec. The shot of the cliffs shows where Wolfe's forces led by William Howe managed to scale the steep embankment to reach the Plains of Abraham and defeat French general Montcalm in September 1759 thus ending France's delusion of a New World empire...

September 25, 1777: British General William Howe conquers Philadelphia. Howe had spent the winter in New York City. He was a good gambler and also found a mistress – Mary Curtis Loring, wife of Joshua Loring. Her husband traded her so that he could be a keeper of American prisoners to make good money. But Howe was angry with Washington who was making him look bad with his winter offensives, and capturing Washington became his focus. He wrote letters to Germaine saying that they would win the war if they could just capture him. General Johnny Burgoyne had recaptured Fort Ticonderoga in in spring/summer 1777 and headed out to Albany from there with 8,500 troops. How was supposed to go up the Hudson River to link up with him and sweep east through New England to sever the colonies and knock out the rebellion. But instead, offended by Washington, he decided to go south and take Philadelphia in early July 1777. He put 15,000 regular British troops on merchant vessels and sailed into the Atlantic Ocean, cir . ...

Aug 22, 1776: Redcoats land at Long Island Minuteman Militia On this day in 1776, the British arrive at Long Island, between Gravesend and New Utrecht, with "near twenty four thousand men ready to land in a moment," according to one observer. General William Howe's large army came to Long Island hoping to capture New York City and gain control of the Hudson River, a victory that would divide the rebellious colonies in half. Five days later, on August 27, the Redcoats marched against the Patriot position at Brooklyn Heights, overcoming the Americans at Gowanus Pass and then outflanking the entire Continental Army. The Americans suffered 1,000 casualties to the British loss of only 400 men during the fighting. Howe chose not to follow the advice of his subordinates, however, and did not storm the Patriot redoubts at Brooklyn Heights, where he could have taken the Patriots' military leadership prisoner and ended the rebellion. General Washington ordered a retreat to Manhattan by boat. The British could easil ...

Palisades Amusement Park (images below are all from 1946) Palisades Amusement Park was a thirty-acre amusement park located in Bergen County, New Jersey, across the Hudson River from New York City. It was located atop the New Jersey Palisades lying partly in Cliffside Park and partly in Fort Lee. The park operated from 1898 until 1971, remaining one of the most visited amusement parks in the country until the end of its existence. After the park closed in 1971, a high-rise luxury apartment complex was built on its site. Throughout its entire history the park overlooked the Hudson River: thirty acres of New Jersey riverfront land straddling what is now Cliffside Park and Fort Lee, and facing the northern end of Manhattan. In 1898, before the onset of highways and automobiles, the Bergen County Traction Company conceived it as a trolley park to attract evening and weekend riders. It was originally known as "The Park on the Palisades." In 1908, the trolley company sold the park to August Neumann and Frank Kn ...
Better known as the oldest operating Union Station in the United States, the historic Victorian era Union Depot of Canaan, Ct. continues to be known as the heart of the town. This grand, wooden structure was born in the heyday of the development of railroads in New England, and miraculously has survived until Fire caused it to almost be completely destroyed on October 13, 2001. In 1872 the Housatonic Railroad and Connecticut Western Railroad constructed the building at the junction in North Canaan. The Housatonic ran generally north to south, following it’s namesake river through the hills and valleys of western Connecticut and Massachusetts. The “Western” later became the Central New England, and eventually, both railroads fell under the dominance of the New York, New Haven and Hartford. The “Western” ran from Hartford, west to Poughkeepsie, NY and the important High Level Bridge across the Hudson River. This link created an all rail route north of New York City, and connected the coal f ...
Chamber News Feed: Somerset County, NJ: A suicidal man fired from his prison work release job was grabbed by Port Authority police officers after they spotted him peering over a ledge on the George Washington Bridge Wednesday, officials said.

Jane Dornacker (October 1, 1947 – October 22, 1986) was an American rock musician, actress, and comedienne turned traffic reporter. In 1986, while working for WNBC 660 AM Radio in New York City (which became WFAN in 1988), Dornacker was aboard during two unrelated crashes of the helicopters leased to WNBC. She survived the first crash, but was killed in the second crash into the Hudson River, which occurred as she was in the middle of a live traffic report. Her death came shortly after that of her husband, Bob Knickerbocker, orphaning their 16-year-old daughter. The NTSB investigation determined the cause of the fatal crash to have been use of improper parts and poor maintenance on the part of Spectrum Helicopters of Ridgefield Park, New Jersey. Dornacker was the tall lead singer (Leila), keyboardist, and songwriter of the 1970s/1980s San Francisco "tack" rock group Leila and the Snakes. Pearl Gates and Pamela Wood provided supporting vocals. Their repertoire included "Rock and Roll Weirdos," "Pyramid P ...

The geography of New York State varies widely. While the state is best known for New York City's urban atmosphere, especially Manhattan's skyscrapers, most of the state is dominated by farms, forests, rivers, mountains, and lakes. New York's Adirondack Park is larger than any U.S. National Park in the contiguous United States.[1] Niagara Falls, on the Niagara River as it flows from Lake Erie to Lake Ontario, is a popular attraction. The Hudson River begins with Lake Tear of the Clouds and flows south through the eastern part of the state without draining lakes George or Champlain. Lake George empties at its north end into Lake Champlain, whose northern end extends into Canada, where it drains into the Richelieu River and then the St. Lawrence. Four of New York City's five boroughs are on the three islands at the mouth of the Hudson River: Manhattan Island, Staten Island, and Brooklyn and Queens on Long Island. "Upstate" is a common term for New York counties north of suburban Westchester, Rockland and Dut ...

On Sunday, May 11, 2014 at approximately 2:30 p.m., the New York City Police Department's Aviation Unit was requested to assist in the rescue of a female hiker with a broken ankle and stranded on a cliff located near the Hudson River approximately 2 miles north the Alpine Tower (Alpine, NJ). Air Sea Rescue 14 and Aviation 19 were then dispatched to the location and located the victim who was approximately 200 feet up from the bottom of the cliff and in the company of members of the Piermont Volunteer Fire Department. With Aviation 19 assuming the command and control position during the rescue operation, Air Sea Rescue, piloted by Police Officer Seth Levinstein, positioned itself alongside the steep inclined cliff, and hovered approximately 50 feet above the victim before lowering Police Officer Edgar Burroughs, one of the crew chiefs aboard Air Sea Rescue 14, using the hoist, to the victim. Police Officer Burroughs, with the assistance of the Piermont Fire Department, was then able to transfer the aided o ...

Mary Cecilia Rogers, who posthumously became known as the “Beautiful Cigar Girl,” led a short and tragic life. After her father died in a steamboat explosion when Mary 17, she took a job in a tobacco shop in New York City, where her good looks beguiled the likes of James Fenimore Cooper and Washington Irving. She disappeared once in what was possibly a publicity stunt masterminded by her boss before she disappeared again one last time in 1841. Her body was pulled from the Hudson River onto the New Jersey shoreline as bystanders watched. One reporter described the young woman, once famous for her beauty, like this: “…she was laying on the bank, on her back, with a rope tied around her…. Her forehead and face appeared to have been battered and butchered, to a mummy. Her features were scarcely visible, so much violence had been done to her…she presented the most horrible spectacle that eye could see.” The popular “penny” newspapers were quick to jump on the story of the Beautiful Cigar Girl ...
Washington Heights is a New York City neighborhood of over 150,000 inhabitants (2010) in the northern reaches of the borough of Manhattan. It is named for Fort Washington, a fortification constructed at the highest point on Manhattan island by Continental Army troops during the American Revolutionary War, to defend the area from the British forces. Washington Heights is bordered by Harlem to the south, along 155th street, Inwood to the north along Hillside Avenue, the Hudson River to the west and the Harlem River and Coogan's Bluff to the east. The Battle of Fort Washington, which occurred on November 16, 1776, saw Fort Washington fall to the British at great cost to the American forces; 130 soldiers were killed or wounded, and an additional 2,700 captured and held as prisoners, many of whom died on prison ships anchored in New York Harbor. The British renamed it "Fort Knyphausen" to honor the German general who had led the successful attack, and held it for the remainder of the war.[6] The progress of th ...
Radio (1897): Tesla first sent a wireless transmission from his lab at Houston Street in New York City to a boat on the Hudson River -- 25 miles (40 km) away -- in 1897; he would've done this sooner but for a fire that destroyed his previous lab in 1895. Tesla invented everything we associate with radio -- antennas, tuners and the like -- but an inventor named Guglielmo Marconi was given the actual credit. In 1943, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Tesla's patent had precedence, but the public already considered Marconi the father of radio [source: TSMNY].

  One of my favorite memories is of my best friend Dara & myself on Cliff Walk in Newport, R.I. where we would spend hours climbing past the designated “tourist” path sandwiched between the perilously jagged edges of the sea and the back sides of the mansions on Ocean Drive. I still don’t’ know how I allowed her, Miss Nature Girl, to get me, a once confirmed City Girl, out doing the kinds of tree-hugging-bohemian things we did. After years of being exposed to her 'free-spirit', I have loosened up considerably.   Dara once had me out at the beach holding little salamanders (or was it grunions?) in my actual hand. (You’d have to know me and my profound squeamishness from childhood to know how absurd that is.) Dara grew up in a beautiful house, I called it a mansion, but she insisted that it was ‘just a house’ located at the top of a hill with an eye-ball popping view of New York City across the Hudson River. I had grown up in different areas all across Detroit City; my mama moved a lot. ...
Sleepy Hollow is a village in Mount Pleasant, New York in Westchester County, New York, United States. It is located on the Eastern Bank of the Hudson River, about 30 miles (48 km) north of Midtown Manhattan in New York City, and is served by the Philipse Manor stop on the Metro-North Hudson Line. Originally incorporated as North Tarrytown in the late 19th century, in 1996 the village officially adopted the traditional name for the area, known to many via the Washington Irving story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow".[1] To the south of Sleepy Hollow is the village of Tarrytown, and to the north and east are unincorporated parts of Mount Pleasant. The population of the village at the 2010 census was 9,870.[2] The village is home to the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, where Washington Irving is buried, along with Andrew Carnegie, Walter P.

Schumer: Nuke Plant Near NYC Needs Constant Watch Associated Press (11/25/13) Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Monday that the stretch of the Hudson River located behind the Indian Point nuclear power plant in the New York City suburbs should be patrolled by boats 24 hours a day. He called on the Coast Guard to lead the effort to gather the necessary resources for such a patrol, saying that 24-hour patrols are the "best possible defense against any attack" against the plant. The comments, Schumer said, where made in reaction to a report by the Nuclear Proliferation Prevention Project at the University of Texas which stated that none of the nation's commercial nuclear power reactors are safe from "a maximum credible terrorist attack." The report also noted that Indian Point and several other nuclear plants are vulnerable to an attack by ship. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), however, said nuclear plants located near bodies of water have other security measures in place besides patrol boats to def ...

Today is Columbus Day in the United States. Instead of celebrating a guy who never actually visited North America, join me in honoring the brave Vikings who made the journey in the year 1000 – and the year 1893! The Viking is a 19th-century replica of the ancient Gokstad ship. The original ship was built in the mid-9th century and used for a ship burial around 900. The replica that was built in Norway at the Framnæs Shipyard in Sanefjord between 1892 and 1893. In 1893, the Viking was sailed by Captain Magnus Andersen and his eleven-man Norwegian crew across the wide Atlantic Ocean from Norway to the United States. The ship made stops in Newfoundland and New York City before traveling via the Hudson River, Erie Canal and Great Lakes to Chicago for the World's Columbian Exhibition in Chicago. Sailing from Bergen, Norway to Newfoundland took twenty-eight days on the open sea. The Chicago Tribune reported that the 4,800-mile journey from Bergen to Chicago took more than two months in total.

Jews distanced from Israel Op-ed: Neturei Karta not the only Jews in US mounting a 'keep away from-Israel' campaign Yishai Fleisher Published: 07.06.13, 11:10 / Israel On a beautiful Sunday morning in May, I was driving south on the West Side Highway in New York City, heading towards the Israel Day Parade. As my car made its way along the mighty Hudson River, I marveled on how awesome this city is. I saw myriads of joggers, happy barbecues taking place on well-tended Riverside Park lawns, and of course, the imposing, surreal, gigantic skyscrapers that adorn this world-capital metropolis. I travel often to New York to promote a stronger connection between North American Jews and Israel, and to encourage aliyah, and every time I go I am struck by the thought: How is the aliyah idea going to compete? This place just has too much of a magnetic pull and Jews have everything here – financial success, the best of world culture, freedom to worship, and all in relative safety, in the shadow of this great city. . ...
Its not even close. New York City has the best fireworks display in the country. Macy's annual firework show over the Hudson River regularly attracts around 2 million people, but vantage points are scattered all over the West Side and New Jersey so the crowd doesn't get too thick. The 26-minute show, which sets off approximately 75,000 pounds of fireworks,
One of the best things that ever happened to me in New York City was when Macy's moved their 4th of July fireworks from the East Side to the West Side. This is the view from the rooftop of my apartment building, 1-1/2 blocks from the Hudson River. (Photos are courtesy of William Selby, who is a much better photographer than I)

Hats off to New York City. The annual Macy's Fireworks Show on the Hudson River against the backdrop of the Manhattan Island skyline is unbelievably spectacular. John Adams said that Independence Day should be celebrated across America with fireworks. He would be proud.

Rosenbergs Die For Betrayal Of America; Both Are Silent, Calm     OSSINING, N.Y. – Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, silent and without emotion, died in the electric chair tonight for betraying atomic bomb secrets to Russia.  Julius, treading firmly and unsupported by guards, entered the Sing Sing death chamber first, at 7:04 p.m. (EST), as a chaplain intoned the 23rd psalm by his side.  Two minutes later he was pronounced dead.   His wife was then led in, at 7:11 and she was dead at 7:16, just 15 minutes before the last rays of the setting sun betokened the start of the Hebrew Sabbath.   Their deaths ended a frenzied day of dramatic legal moves after the Supreme Court had voided a stay of execution previously granted by Associate Justice William O. Douglas.   No Mob At Prison   There was no demonstration outside the walls of the grim fortress prison on the banks of the Hudson River, but 30 miles away in New York City, the Rosenbergs’ home, police stopped a mass meeting of 5,000 persons as a hysteri ...
We just got back from an exciting and fun filled trip to Hershey PA, Rhinebeck, Woodstock, Hudson River Valley, New York City, Pocono Mountains and thrilling drive on I-81 in the rain during a tornado watch. I'll be posting pictures soon. I will say that the New River and Greenbrier River are much prettier than the Hudson River, and the Blue Ridge and Allegheny Mountains are more beautiful than the Catskills and Poconos put together.
Hudson River- The name originated from Dutch Jonker who settled in 1645. Since then, people have yearned to live in this area. The Hudson River is located n the Eastern shore, north of New York City in Westchester County. The stunning views and hilly contours have earned the nickname “City of Terraces”. The close proximity to Manhattan has made this commute extremely popular. The city’s phenomenal public transportation options have nursed the fact that it is one of the primary destinations for commuters travelling to and from Manhattan.
New York State’s Tappan Zee Bridge – Government Murder Waiting To Happen by BigFurHat - May 24, 2013 - There is no other way to put this. The government is corrupt and they do not give a crap about you. If you are reading this, and happen to be one of the hundreds, perhaps thousands, who will die in the inevitable Tappan Zee Bridge collapse, sorry, pal. Your corrupt government killed you. After World War II there was considerable suburban sprawl spreading away from New York City. One of the destinations was the area to the west of the Hudson River, both in New Jersey and New York. This created lots of traffic bottlenecking at the bridges and tunnels trying to enter Manhattan. Another bridge was needed to siphon traffic across the Hudson to connect to other arteries that entered NYC from the northern end of Westchester County. The New York/New Jersey Port Authority, in 1950, had plans to build that bridge at one of the narroWest Points of the Hudson, in Dobbs Ferry, NY. At the 12th hour, governor Thoma ...
Originally called the Midtown Hudson Tunnel, the Lincoln Tunnel is actually the world’s first three-tube underwater vehicular tunnel system. It's 97 feet under the water. The three so-called “tubes” are known as the North, Center, and South Tunnels, each 21.5 feet wide and designed with two traffic lanes apiece. The tunnels cross the Hudson River connecting NJ-495, NJ-3, and the New Jersey Turnpike (I-95) in Weehawken, N.J. to Midtown Manhattan at 39th Street in New York City. It opened December 22, 1937 (Center Tube), February 1, 1945 (North tube) and May 25, 1957(South tube). Designed by Ole Singstad, a Norwegian-American who pioneered underwater vehicular tunnels, he had previously designed the novel ventilation system for the Holland Tunnel and is renowned for designing all the underwater road tunnels in New York City. With funding provided by President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal program, construction of the first tube, referred to as the Center Tunnel, began in 1935 under the auspices . ...

The European Model Control run just came in and completely agrees with the short-range American model on 18-30 inches across Northern New Jersey, with the lowest amounts across western sections near the Delaware River and the highest amounts in eastern sections near the Hudson River.

Poem for New York State 5:00AM January 16, 2013 There's a beautiful, silent snow falling on Beacon right now. Is it falling all over our beautiful New York State this morning? Is it falling all up and down our Hudson River? On our New York City? Is it falling in our beloved and ancient Adirondack Mountains? Our Blue Mountain Lake? Our Long Lake, Raquette, and Lake Champlain? And what about our Catskill Mountains. Is it falling there too? Is it falling all along the southern shores of our own Lake Ontario Where the fruit belt of apple, peach, and cherry orchards thrive? On the muck farms of Upstate New York -- that rich black soil Where the early Dutch settlers first planted their celery, onion, and cabbage crops? Is it falling on our own Mohawk River and Erie Canal? Our Finger Lakes? Our vineyards. Our small towns. Our small farms. Of Central New York? Are they all covered in white this morning? On our Niagra Falls? Our Buffalo? Our Binghamton? Our Corning, Painted Post, DeRuyter, Sheds and New Woodst ...

Edward Hopper (July 22, 1882 – May 15, 1967) was a prominent American realist painter and printmaker. While he was most popularly known for his oil paintings, he was equally proficient as a watercolorist and printmaker in etching. Both in his urban and rural scenes, his spare and finely calculated renderings reflected his personal vision of modern American life.[1] Hopper was born in upper Nyack, New York, a yacht-building center on the Hudson River north of New York City. [2] He was one of two children of a comfortably well-off, middle-class family. His parents, of mostly Dutch ancestry, were Garret Henry Hopper, a dry-goods merchant, and his wife Elizabeth Griffiths Smith.[3] Though not as successful as his forebears, Garrett provided well for his two children with considerable help from his wife’s inheritance. He retired at age forty-nine.[4] Edward and his only sister Marion attended both private and public schools. They were raised in a strict Baptist home.[5] His father had a mild nature, and th ...
A crane operator loads Hurricane Sandy debris from a barge into a long-haul truck Nov. 23 at the Port of Coeymans, near Albany, N.Y. To date, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has barged an estimated 10,200 tons of debris up the Hudson River and out of New York City.
Thanksgiving. Be sure it is sincere thanks to the Lord. In 1621, the Plymouth colonist and Wampanoag Indians shared an authumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies. For more than two centuries, days of thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states. It wasn't until 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each Nov. Not all of the Mayflower's passengers were motivated by religion. Half the groupe were Separatists, the people known as the Pilgrimes. There were also a small groupe called Sympathetic, they weren't actually part of that core group of dissidents. The remaining passangers were really hired hands. The Mayflower first landed at the tip of Cape Code, in what is now Provincetown. They had originally hoped to make it to the mouth of the Hudson River and find fertile farm land some where north of present-day New York City, but bad weather preven ...

WASHINGTON (AP) — Climate scientist Michael Oppenheimer stood along the Hudson River and watched his research come to life as Hurricane Sandy blew through New York. Just eight months earlier, the Princeton University professor reported that what used to be once-in-a-century devastating floods in New York City would soon happen every three to 20 years. He blamed global warming for pushing up sea levels and changing hurricane patterns. New York “is now highly vulnerable to extreme hurricane-surge flooding,” he wrote. For more than a dozen years, Oppenheimer and other climate scientists have been warning about the risk for big storms and serious flooding in New York. A 2000 federal report about global warming’s effect on the United States warned specifically of that possibility. Still, they say it’s unfair to blame climate change for Sandy and the destruction it left behind. They cautioned that they cannot yet conclusively link a single storm to global warming, and any connection is not as clear an ...
This day in History: Anyone familiar with "Clinton's Ditch?" In 1825, the Erie Canal - nicknamed for its creator, Governor DeWitt Clinton of New York - provided a vital connection from the Hudson River across New York State to Lake Erie. At first, most people thought the idea was absurd and potentially disastrous. But on this day, the first vessel to traverse the Erie Canal - the Seneca Chief - arrived in New York City. The trip from Buffalo took nine days, a vast improvement over the weeks of grueling overland travel it took before "Clinton's Ditch" was built.
Homeless Endure Hurricane Sandy In New York City: 'I Can Survive Just Like This' Posted: 10/29/2012 6:49 pm EDT Updated: 10/29/2012 11:09 pm EDT New York -- As Hurricane Sandy hurtled toward New York City on Monday, Eduardo Acevedo, 57, sat in an empty lot just steps from the Hudson River. Straight ahead of him was the overcast skyline of New Jersey. Behind him, a panorama of glassy, doormanned buildings owned by Donald Trump. It was almost 12:30 p.m., and the city Department of Sanitation was shutting down Riverside Park, kicking out a group of hurricane gawkers from the waterfront. Acevedo had nowhere to go, so he parked himself on a slab of concrete owned by the city, associated with a nearby warehouse. "If I just sit here, I'll be okay. My *** is here tonight," Acevedo said, slipping his chapped hands into his pockets. Above him, the West Side Highway thrummed with taxis. "If they don't see you lie down, they don't do nothing to you." There are thousands of homeless people in New York City. On a given ...
News about Hurricane Sandy is still coming in. All indications are that this is worst storm the Eastern part of the US has seen in over 100 years. News about destruction and death are all around us. Please keep our brothers and sisters in the path of this hurricane in your prayers. Millions are without power, thousands are in shelters, and countless others are cut off from their families and loved ones. Many volunteers are now en route to the areas devastated by Hurricane Sandy. Many volunteers will offer emotional and spiritual support to people whose lives are in turmoil. Several members of GFB who live downtown in New York City and in Brooklyn had to be evacuated and relocated because of the flooding. More reports are coming in as the churches there are following up with each member today. As you have seen in the news, much of lower Manhattan and areas near the East River and Hudson River are flooded and many places south of Times Square are without power. Even this morning most tunnels and bridges out ...
Oct 30, 12:58 AM EDT Nuclear plant shuts down unit as storm hits coast By JOSH LEDERMAN Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) -- Part of a nuclear power plant was shut down late Monday while another plant - the nation's oldest - was put on alert after waters from superstorm Sandy rose 6 feet above sea level. One of the units at Indian Point, a plant about 45 miles north of New York City, was shut down around 10:45 p.m. because of external electrical grid issues said Entergy Corp., which operates the plant. The company said there was no risk to employees or the public, and the plant was not at risk due to water levels from the Hudson River, which reached 9 feet 8 inches and was subsiding. Another unit at the plant was still operating at full power. The oldest U.S. nuclear power plant, New Jersey's Oyster Creek, was already out of service for scheduled refueling. But high water levels at the facility, which sits along Barnegat Bay, prompted safety officials to declare an "unusual event" around 7 p.m. About two h ...

The Opening of the Erie Canal On October 26, 1825, a floating parade led by the canal packet Seneca Chief left Buffalo, New York, in a Grand Opening of the newly finished, 363-mile Erie Canal. Cannons spaced an earshot’s distance apart boomed the message east: the procession had begun. Cheering crowds lined the banks, with bands, speeches, and fireworks welcoming the flotilla at every town. “Our brightest, highest hopes are all consummated,” the Rochester Telegraph proclaimed. “Let the shouts of triumph be heard from Erie to the Atlantic.” At Albany, the boats headed down the Hudson River to New York City, arriving on November 4. There Governor De Witt Clinton poured a keg of Lake Erie water into the harbor, symbolizing the “Wedding of the Waters” between the Great Lakes and the ocean. The Erie Canal had taken nearly nine years to construct. Skeptics had called it Clinton’s Ditch, after the governor who championed the most ambitious engineering feat yet attempted in the United States. Work ...

Good Morning & Happy National Mincemeat Pie Day. On this date in 1825 The 363 mile long Erie Canal was finished. Connecting the Great Lakes to the Hudson River at Albany, it provided a water route from the Great Lakes to New York City and the Atlantic Ocean, and began the great canal building era in the U.S. (1825-1840). In 1854 C. W. Post (Charles William) was born. He founded the Postum Cereal Co. in 1895 (renamed General Foods Corp. in 1922) to manufacture Postum cereal beverage; 1897 Grape Nuts, 1904 Post Toasties (originally called Elijah's Mana).

A Word With You - Your Personal Power Wednesday, October 10, 2012 Well, it was our first weekend after we had moved to the New York area, and it was the fourth of July. So, we thought it would be a good weekend to see New York City. A lot of people will be gone, and it was a good weekend. We didn't get all jammed up in traffic, we got to see a lot of the sights and get familiar with the streets. We kind of braved it. When we headed home, we drove up the West Side Highway, which runs right along the Hudson River headed for the George Washington Bridge. All of a sudden all the traffic came to a stop. Well, we thought that was a little unusual to have this big traffic jam on a holiday, but what was more unusual was it just didn't move at all. We weren't creeping or inching along; we were totally stopped. It was a long parking lot and no one moved an inch for like half an hour. I couldn't figure out what was going on. And then I noticed the people getting out of their cars, walking around, sitting on their ca ...

What a beautiful day! Left at 8am on a van tour of New York City. Went by Harlem and along the Hudson River. Then went to Times Square and walked about including some shirt shopping. Wish the sales people could speak English. Drove through more of NY and then down to the area of Ground Zero. Couldn't ses the reflection pools as we did not have reservations for that. Did see where they are building the new Freedom Tower and South Tower and the fire house where all the firefighters were killed. Ate NY pizza and a hot dog from the street vendor. Bought another sweatshirt from a street vendor 50% cheaper than before. More touring and then out to Ellis Island by ferry and then to Liberty Island and the Statue of Liberty. Both very impressive. We found a bunch of Schenks but no Voges who came through Ellis Island. Drove through New Jersey and then back to the campground at 6pm. On to Gettysburg and to Hershey tomorrow. Mary Beth we'll be calling you!!!
Great day today. Only a small rain shower. Went on a tour of West Point. Very Impressive. Learned a lot about US History and why Washington chose the site he did on the Hudson River to build first the military installation at West Point and then the academy. Tomorrow we do the bus tour of New York City. Leaves at 8:00am.
What can you say about New York City? A million things I am sure. But for me? Can you say SENSORY OVERLOAD?! My sister, Toby, was kind enough to come along with us for our day trip to the Big Apple. We took the bus in from Clinton rather than drive in. You know, leave the driving to someone else? Nice bus, is all I can say! That’s the way to go. Takes you right into the Port Authority with a few stops throughout the Newark Airport. I had gone online to get tickets for the double decker bus tour highly recommended by my daughter, Tobi (not to be confused with my sister, Toby). From the bus drop off, it was a short walk to Madame Tussaud's to get our vouchers and we caught the bus right away. Being it was only 8:30 in the morning, the tour was a bit chilly, although the day was absolutely beautiful! We saw sights such as the Empire State Building, Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Ground Zero, the Hudson River, the UN, lots of Manhattan. We never did get up to Central Park and that area. We will have to ...
Hi Everyone, Went into New York City today just to get a feel for it before we start our three day bus and attractions tours tomorrow. It took us about forty minutes to get there by train and about an hour home. We took the express going and will take it coming home from now on (lots of stops). It was a pretty ride though. Part of the trip is right next to the Hudson River. We arrived and left from Grand Central Station. It is big and looks like it does in all the movies (very pretty). It wasn't that busy when we got there (around noon) but was getting very busy at three thirty. Just walked around today. Went to Time Square, walked Broadway, went to a couple shops and then over to the Fox News studio. Contrary to what we've all heard, New Yorker's are very friendly and helpful. We had rain last night, most of the night. Today was beautiful and sunny. It is starting to cool off here. They said on Fox weather this morning, it looks like winter may get here early this year for New York. Hope s ...

Last time we talked, we were at the very end of Lake Champlain, at Whitehall. As I told you this is the end of the Lake but the beginning of the Champlain Canal with its 12 locks but after the Canal you start sailing the Hudson River to get you to New York City. Well, we started our voyage back north with the plan to do a couple of stops. Our first stop was about 3 hours sailing to a small bay called Cole Bay. It’s around an island – Cole Island- the size of a small Wal-Mart. Just next to this bay is one much known boys’ summer camp called Dudley Camp. We stayed at Cole Bay for the night and found out in the morning that the wind is north and we are not going to be protected well. We decided then to go to visit a place that we actually wanted to go to if the conditions are good. It is a small town called Vergennes. The problem is to get there you have to sail for 2 hours in Otter Creek. The water is shallow and you have to watch for loose logs, hidden rocks, and not exceed 5 miles per hour ...

Elysian Fields in Hoboken, New Jersey is believed to be the site of the first organized baseball game. In 1845, Knickerbocker Club of New York City began using Elysian Fields in Hoboken to play baseball due to the lack of suitable grounds across the Hudson River in Manhattan. On June 19, 1846, the Knickerbockers led by Alexander Cartwright played the New York Nine on these grounds in the first organized game between two clubs. Today, the quest of twelve Murrayhil Little League players to take part in the Little League, Jr. Division World Series in Taylor, Michigan begins at Sunset HS.making the routine plays our routine.

Ron Tyme!! Sorry Just got home from spending the day in New York City. As we came through the clouds and I saw the city it literally took my breath away. I have never seen anything like that in my life. I saw the Brooklyn Bridge, Central Park and the Hudson River. It truly was a sight to be seen. Then we landed.Oh my. I spent the afternoon wondering around the area. That's a way of life I have never seen. Someone needs to start Ativan stores there. They could be rich! A wise woman once told me "You're a man and the world is you're urinal" but not there. These people seem a bit uptight. They wouldn't even let me pee outside! They kept talking about bathrooms. Whatever!
