Heavy fog blankets Lower Manhattan, including the now-open One World Trade Center. Julio Cortez/AP One World Trade Center, or the "Freedom Tower," as it was formerly known, soars above New York City, finally filling a void left by the 9/11 terror attacks. The brilliant blue-silver facade glints no matter where you are in the city—nothing less than a "beacon of hope, just like the Statue of Liberty," says the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which runs the site in a joint venture with real estate giant the Durst Organization. The tower is now the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere. And it's also supposed to be one of the greenest—a first on its scale to aim for the US Green Building Council's LEED gold certification, a coveted prize for sustainable building design. One World Trade Center features lighting that reacts to sunshine, rain harvesting, and a state-of-the-art onsite fuel cell installation, one of the largest of its kind in the world. In 2008, then-New York Gov. David A. Pate ...

Honorable Bill de Blasio Mayor City Hall New York, NY 10007 Dear Mayor de Blasio, THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF New York We write to you today, with one voice, to express our concern over the state of the Superstorm Sandy recovery process in New York City and the Build-it-Back program. Superstom Sandy impacted the lives of tens of thousands of New York City residents. The south shore of Brooklyn from Canarsie to Coney Island, Seagate Bensonhurst, Red Hook, the Rockaways, Lower Manhattan, and all across the coast of Staten Island were devastated by Sandy and are still, sixteen months later, struggling to recover. While over 20,000 New Yorkers have applied to recovery programs, like Build-it-Back, fewer than 500 applicants have finalized the process. Recovery programs must speed up the process of disbursing funds in order to help those in need and to restore confidence in the City’s recovery efforts. To facilitate the recovery process, we urge you to appoint a Sandy recovery point-person, at the mayoral leve ...

For all his faults, a remarkable record. Last leader to be able to cite so many great stats upon leaving office was President Clinton. From Mayor Bloomberg's final radio address: “When I first took the oath of office, few people would have believed that murder could be cut in half; that high school graduation rates could increase by 42 percent; that 22 of the state’s top 25 elementary and middle schools could be located in New York City, versus zero in 2001; that the number of people living in Lower Manhattan could more than double; that the number of jobs could hit a record high, with most of them created outside Manhattan; that our life expectancy could grow by three years; that we could be the only large city in the country to experience no increase in poverty; that we could create the largest affordable housing program any city has ever undertaken; that we could add more than 850 new acres of parkland and revitalize much of our waterfront; that one million trees could be planted; that our air coul ...

The Manhattan Bridge is a suspension bridge that crosses the East River in New York City, connecting Lower Manhattan (at Canal Street) with Brooklyn (at Flatbush Avenue Extension). It was the last of the three suspension bridges built across the lower East River, following the Brooklyn and the Williamsburg bridges. The bridge was opened to traffic on December 31, 1909 and was designed by Leon Moisseiff,[1] who later designed the infamous original Tacoma Narrows Bridge that opened and collapsed in 1940. It has four vehicle lanes on the upper level (split between two roadways). The lower level has three lanes, four subway tracks, a walkway and a bikeway. The upper level, originally used for streetcars, has two lanes in each direction, and the lower level is one-way and has three lanes in peak direction. It once carried New York State Route 27 and later was planned to carry Interstate 478. No tolls are charged for motor vehicles to use the Manhattan Bridge.

On August 17, 2016, hours after killing General Shepherd, Captain Price and Nikolai evacuate a dying John "Soap" MacTavish from Site Hotel Bravo, Afghanistan. Soap receives medical attention(though still not battle ready) in a safehouse run by Nikolai's Loyalist allies in Himachal Pradesh, India, but Vladamir Makarov's forces arrive in an attempt to kill the trio. After the doctor is shot down, Yuri, Nikolai's best soldier, who has as much a grudge against Makarov as Price, gives Soap an adrenaline shot to keep his heart going, and helps secure a safe route out of the country. Meanwhile, the war between Russia and the United States continues by proving the battle of Washington D.C the turning point of the war as U.S forces reclaim many eastern cities.

Just a interesting find I thought some of you might find interesting to read... Just saying.. - Operation Sandy December 1, 2012 Sandy was not a natural disaster. No, it was created by the U. S. Chemtrails Air Force and by those at the highest positions in the government who command it. [Editor's Note: I am not in a position to endorse or refute these claims, which I present for purposes of discussion.) by Les Crane(henrymakow.com) The hurricane and flooding which struck the United States East Coast on October 29th, 2012 was an unprecedented event. It was so unprecedented as to be unbelievable. But it did happen. Sandy caused unimaginable damage to the shores of New York, New Jersey, Long Island, Connecticut and to New York City itself. Was this storm a natural disaster or was it man-made? Since the founding of New Amsterdam, aka New York City, 500 years ago, there has never been a storm such as this; with the ocean rising up to cover Lower Manhattan and other low-lying area. Another peculiar coincidenc . ...

Bryce "liked" Britt Nicole's FB page, and she received 2 tickets to her new album release party at the Canal Room in New York City. So last night, Bryce, her friend Katie and I took a road trip to lower Manhattan. They had some extra free tickets at the door, so I could go in also. Bryce & Katie talked to Britt and got their picture taken with her, (Bryce was "star-struck" and couldn't speak), then Britt did 5 songs off of her "Gold" album for the 75- 100 people that were there. The club was very small, so it was like a house party. What a great afternoon and evening!

From Lisa W. Foderaro at The New York Times "Across New York City, gardens and miniature farms — whether on rooftops or at ground level — are joining smart boards and digital darkrooms as must-have teaching tools. They are being used in subjects as varied as science, art, mathematics and social studies. In the past two years, the number of school-based gardens registered with the city jumped to 232, from 40, according to GreenThumb, a division of the parks department that provides schools with technical support. But few of them come with the credential of the 2,400-square-foot garden at Avenue B and Fifth Street in the East Village, on top of a red-brick building that houses three public schools: the Earth School, Public School 64 and Tompkins Square Middle School. Michael Arad, the architect who designed the National September 11 Memorial in Lower Manhattan, was a driving force behind the garden, called the Fifth Street Farm. The idea took shape four years ago among parents and teachers, when Mr. Ara ...

CHAPTER 1: THE BIRTH OF THE AMERICAN MAFIA From 1890 to 1920 more than 4 million Italian’s emigrated to the United States of America to escape poverty, political instability and in some cases the law. A large number of the Italians who settled in America where from the Mezziogiorno, Southern Italy and Sicily, which was saturated in violence, extreme poverty, blood vendetta, feudalism and the Mafia. A huge percentage of the emigrants settled in New York City which will be the main area of focus in the book. Mulberry Street and the area around Lower Manhattan (Little Italy), Harlem, in Upper Manhattan, the Bronx and the borough of Brooklyn would become strong bastions of the Italian people in New York City. 99.99% of these emigrants were hard working, industrious people who played an important role in the birth of modern America. But there was a tiny minority of Italians who brought with them the traditions of the Mafia, blood vendetta, “honour” and “respect”. These Mafioso held on to their old-wo ...
In a speech in Lower Manhattan on Thursday, Mayor Bloomberg outlined the long-term challenges posed by severe weather and detailed how the city will tackle them. Former Vice President Al Gore introduced the Mayor and said, “Among mayors of this nation and this world, he stands out. I don't know of anybody who has done more.” Some of the key points from the Mayor’s speech include: · New York City cannot solve the problems associated with climate change on its own but can lead the way, as it has been both locally and globally. · Since the Mayor launched the nation’s first comprehensive sustainability plan in 2007, PlaNYC, the City’s carbon footprint has been reduced by 16%. In addition, the City has taken major steps toward adapting to climate change, including through revisions to the building code, adoption of green roofs, and restoration of wetlands. · To prepare New York City for future extreme weather events, the Mayor began by directing Deputy Mayors Cas Holloway and Linda Gibbs to con .. ...

The East River overflowed its banks, flooding large sections of Lower Manhattan. Battery Park had a water surge of 13.88 ft.[250] Seven subway tunnels under the East River were flooded as of October 30.[251] The Metropolitan Transportation Authority said early on October 30, that the destruction caused by the storm was the worst disaster in the 108-year history of the New York City subway system.[252] Sea water flooded the Ground Zero construction site.[253] In addition, a four story Chelsea building's facade crumbled and collapsed leaving the interior on full display. However, no one was hurt by the falling masonry.

Do you know where Wall Street got its name? Free roaming hogs were notorious for rampaging through the precious grain fields of colonial New York City farmers. The Manhattan Island residents chose to limit the forays of these riotous hogs by erecting a long, permanent wall on the northern edge of what is now Lower Manhattan. A street came to border this wall, aptly enough named "Wall Street." - Pork Checkoff Quick Facts
Nathan Hale was captured by the British and hanged as a patriot spy during the American Revolutionary War. His last words are reputed to have been “I only regret that I have but one life to give for my country.” Hale was a graduate of Yale College who joined the Continental Army at the urging of his classmate Benjamin Tallmadge, who was himself a patriot spy. On September 8, 1776, during the Battle of Long Island, Hale volunteered to pose as a school teacher and go behind enemy lines into lower Manhattan to determine British troop movements. On September 15, 1776, the British captured New York City and subsequently rounded up partisans, including Hale, in reprisal for the burning of lower Manhattan, allegedly by saboteurs. Hale was hanged the next day, September 22, 1776, at the age of 21. This statue of Hale by Frederick William Macmonnies was dedicated in 1893 at City Hall Park in New York City near the purported site of the hanging. Augustus Saint-Gaudens was Macmonnies’ teacher and friend, and f ...

The wood from this piece is notable history from Lower Manhattan. 150 year old wood brought back to life as "Rick Kelly" Chumleys Telecaster. Read on: Chumley's is a historic pub and former speakeasy at 86 Bedford Street in New York City. According to writer John D. Lukacs in a 2003 piece for the now-defunct USAirways in-flight Magazine Attache, it was established in 1922 by the "erstwhile anarchist, labor organizer, and soldier of fortune turned entrepreneur" Leland Stanford Chumley, who converted a former blacksmith's shop near the corner of Bedford and Barrow Streets into the Prohibition-era drinking establishment. The speakeasy became a favorite spot for influential writers, poets, playwrights, journalists, and activists, including members of the Lost Generation and the Beat Generation movements. Some NY Magazine photos are posted on their site here: 86 that_Chumley's Photos A number of qualities remain from Chumley's Prohibition history.

East Coast Sandy's no longer a hurricane, but it still packs a wallop. The massive storm was downgraded just after it barged ashore in southern New Jersey, bringing 90-mph winds and a roiling wall of seawater as it moved inland and north toward New York City. It sent 90-mph gusts through the Wall Street canyons and water surging to a record 13 feet in Lower Manhattan, surging into two major commuter tunnels and into subway stations and tracks. It was unclear how much water had come in. The MTA also cut power to some subway tunnels in lower Manhattan, after water came into the stations and tracks. The MTA couldn't say at this point how much damage had been done, and how much time it would take to restore everything to normal. Consolidated Edison was prompted to cut power to part of the area to avoid storm damage. Manhattan's FDR Drive was under water south of 20th Street. The storm was expected to lash the nation's biggest city -- and surrounding metro area - until midnight. Fatal car crashes in Maryland a ...

Here's my letter re 9-11 printed today in the Dallas Morning News: On this, the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, my mind wanders back to an early visit this summer to New York City, when, approaching lower Manhattan on the Staten Island Ferry and taking in the million-dollar view of the Big Apple, I was heartened by the sight of the beautiful Freedom Tower under construction at the World Trade Center site. The tower’s construction had just reached its full height, and it is truly a wonder to behold. Filling the void left by the fallen towers, the Freedom Tower speaks loudly and proudly, “We’re back! You can’t keep us down”. However, along with great pride, a tiny nagging doubt intruded into my thoughts. It could become a perfect target. I pray not. Never again. Polly Shaw, Argyle
On Saturday mornings, many of us plan our home improvement projects and gather the necessary supplies - except that here in New York City, sometimes "home," and "improvement," have different meanings. I was at Home Depot in Lower Manhattan, trying to decide which diameter of steel safety cable would suffice for the air conditioner that I would soon be installing above the heads of unsuspecting pedestrians. A woman standing quite close to me was examining the various chains that could be cut to length. I noted that she had a strikingly beautiful face, flawless skin and an almost impossibly perfect body - taut, with curves in just the right places. Her skimpy all-black attire; consisting of short shorts, a trim, midriff-bearing tank top and combat boots; deftly accentuated her ample aspects and her many tattoos. As soon as I became aware of her presence I also noticed that every other man in sight was intently staring at her. Standing only a foot or two apart, I couldn't help listening to her conversation w ...

When we lived in NYC we rarely had storms like this. I think they have less big thunderstrom in New York City than we have in the midwest. We were on the 31st floor (94th and Third Avenue) with a great view to the south and east (out over Long Island) and looked forward to lightning shows, but didn't have them. My office was in lower Manhattan. Streets very narrow, all the buildings very high. When there was thunder it would echo off the buildings! Very cool.

Don't Get Diverted While I was busy doing something else... 1 Kings 20:40 The word busy is used only once in Scripture: 'While I was busy doing something else, the prisoner disappeared!' In this story, God judges someone for forgetting what's important and taking their eye off the ball. In 1992, Fortune magazine featured 'The biggest business goofs of 1991'. In an act of corporate cooperation, AT&T reached an agreement with Con Edison, the power company in New York City. The contract stated that whenever power demands exceeded the utilities' grid, AT&T would lessen their demands on the electric utility by throwing a switch, unplugging some of its facilities, and drawing power from internal generators at its 33 Thomas Street station in Lower Manhattan. On September 17, AT&T acted in accordance with its agreement. But when AT&T's own generators kicked in, the power surge kicked out some of their vital rectifiers which handled 4.5 million domestic calls, 470,000 international calls, 1,174 flights across the ...

Eleven years ago this summer, Lt. Harry Wanamaker Jr., a 58-year-old veteran New York City firefighter assigned to Marine Company 1, posed proudly on a fireboat against the skyline of Lower Manhattan with Welles Remy Crowther, 24, an equities trader at Sandler O’Neill & Partners who worked on the 104th floor of 2 World Trade Center. On the face of it, they seemed to have little in common. But there was in fact a close bond. Both men were volunteer members of the Empire Hook and Ladder Company, No. 1, in Upper Nyack, N.Y., and Lieutenant Wanamaker was among the firefighters who had trained Mr. Crowther. Three months after the photo was taken, both men played vital roles in the rescue work of Sept. 11, 2001. High up in the south tower, with his trademark red bandanna covering his mouth and nose for protection, Mr. Crowther drew on his training to save numerous lives — no one will ever know how many — as he organized rescue efforts, calmed survivors with his authoritative directions and carried the wou ...
