NEW WORLD Musique de Philip Glass

The Unisphere's fountain reopened on August 12, 2010, after a $2 million restoration of its pumps, valves and paintwork. Ever since the restoration it has become, once again, a children's favorite.

 

This New York City landmark was conceived and constructed as the theme symbol of the 1964–1965 New York World's Fair. The theme of the World's Fair was "Peace Through Understanding."

The Unisphere is a 12-story high, spherical stainless steel representation of the Earth.

 

Located in Flushing Meadows – Corona Park in the borough of Queens, the Unisphere has become the borough's symbol of identity in New York City.

 

One of my favorite trivia questions is "What do the three rings represent?"

Black & white - mostly - version of a photo I posted about a week ago. From my recent trip to New York City.

 

At first the guy in the middle kept getting lost, then it hit me to try that mostly-b&w-but-just-one-thingy-is-color technique. What is that called? Anyway, this is how it came out. It makes me smile! :-)

The Boathouse on the Lake in Central Park.

Fresh Pond is a small neighborhood in the New York City borough of Queens, separated from Juniper Valley by the Lutheran and Mount Olivet cemeteries. Its main streets, Fresh Pond Road, Metropolitan Avenue, Eliot Avenue and 61st street, meet at the community's commercial center. Fresh Pond is served by the Fresh Pond Road and Middle Village–Metropolitan Avenue stations of the BMT Myrtle Avenue Line of the New York City Subway. It is also the home of a Bus Depot for the metropolitan transit authority of New York. Off in the background is a view of the Freedom Tower being built.

Walk last week after all-day windowless conference room hell in NYC!

Manhattan skyline taken by Brooklyn side

Don't know much about this Soundview wall art. Searching for "Tales of Story Avenue" I came up with this.

This is an interior view of the main lobby of the William Fitts Ryan Visitor Center at the National Park’s Floyd Bennett Field in Barren Island Brooklyn. The city of New York was inspired after the Trans-Atlantic non-stop flight of Charles Lindbergh in May 1927 from Roosevelt Field on Long Island to Paris France to build an airport within the city limits. New York City’s first municipal airport, Floyd Bennett Field was dedicated on May 23, 1931, named after the Congressional Medal of Honor recipient Floyd Bennett who was the naval pilot of Commander Byrd’s flight over the North Pole in 1926. The interior of the main air terminal, now the Ryan Visitor Center was carefully restored to its 1931 splendor undergoing a 3 year restoration that was completed in 2012. After New York opened another airport in 1939, what today is called LaGuardia Airport, Floyd Bennett Field was sold the United States Navy in 1941 who used it for various purposes until 1972 when it became part of the National Park Service.

The bright welcoming colors and the paintings depicting the different modes of transportation from the steam engine onward convey novelty and excitement that was part of early commercial flight. Painstaking attention was paid to the details, the murals, the moldings; just a beautiful restoration of a building that was the pinnacle of the ‘Golden Age of Aviation’. Amongst the detail is the marvelously restored skylight in the center of the high ceiling drawing one’s eyes to the stained glass bird at its center.

This is the bold Roman arch main entrance of the seven story Eagle Warehouse is located on 28 Old Fulton Street in the historic Fulton Ferry Landing district in Brooklyn can be viewed if one is walking across the Brooklyn Bridge as on comes into Brooklyn. It dates back to 1893 when prominent Brooklyn architect Frank Freeman was commissioned to build a fireproof warehouse on the site that had been used by the Brooklyn Eagle newspaper which moved. The Brooklyn Eagle’s editor from 1846-1848 was Long Island native writer Walt Whitman. The warehouse was constructed around the old Brooklyn Eagle pressroom and was completed in 1894. The Brooklyn Law School was a tenant here from 1904-1928. The building served many tenants over the years but became another model of adaptive reuse in the late 20th century. The sturdy structure and ideal location with amazing views of the Brooklyn Bridge and lower Manhattan skyline made it a desirable location. In 1980 the landmark structure was transformed into 85 luxury apartments.
