Today is National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, honoring those killed during the surprise attack by Japanese forces on the American naval base at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii, on December 7, 1941—prompting U.S. entry into the war. In November 1945, our Library was given photos of the aftermath of the bombing captured by U.S. Navy photographers. In that collection was this shot from the Brooklyn Navy Yard taken on January 9, 1942, just over a month after the bombing. This parade of ship workers had volunteered for transfer to Pearl Harbor—a profound gesture of support and sacrifice. #PearlHarborDay

Halletts Point on Astoria’s western edge is the only remaining placename that references Astoria’s previous name, Hallett Cove. It was named after William Hallett who took the land in 1652 with his wife, Elizabeth Fones. They fled a few years later after a displaced Lenape tribe burned the original house and farm. It is now the site of a megaproject by the Durst Organization . . . #nyc #ny #newyork #newyorkcity #queens #astoria #astoriapark #eastriver #hellgate #hallettpoint #hallettcove #nyhistory #newyorkhistory #nativeamerican #nativeamericanhistory #americanhistory #lenape #megaproject #durstorganization #realestate #nycrealestate #queensrealestate #sunset #city #citypark #citylife #cityliving #urban #urbanism

Repost @nyhistory-- #Onthisday in 1933, the 21st Amendment to the Constitution was ratified, repealing the 18th Amendment and ending Prohibition. 🥂🍷🍻🍸🥃 Of course, many had never intended to follow Prohibition in the first place. We found this (hefty) receipt from @ackerwines in 1919 among the papers of #WoolworthBuilding architect Cass Gilbert. We know that his private stash lasted at least five years (!) through May 1925 — his papers include a memo of a telephone conversation he had at that time with “Miss Pica” at the office of the U.S. Federal Prohibition Director. Gilbert, who was moving into a new residence, asked for "hypothetical" advice about how a person could legally store "wines and spirits purchased prior to the enactment of the Prohibition Law" while waiting for alterations on a new home to be completed. 🧐 (We also know that Gilbert made generous donations to anti-Prohibition organizations lobbying for the 18th Amendment’s repeal.) It seems Gilbert found a way to make his secret stash work, but not everyone was so lucky. 🚧🚨👉

I’d like to share a bit of history today that shows that the struggles of a soldier are just as prevalent during domestic service as fighting abroad. Pvt John Sadler. 15th Separate Company, 21st Regiment NYNG. John Sadler, a Poughkeepsie native, enlisted in the National Guard sometime during the year of 1886. Pvt. Sadler was deployed to Buffalo during the Switchmans Strike of 1892. Although the strike had been raging since the 12th of August, John and the other 49 men of his company didn't arrive until Friday the 19th. Their objective was to protect the property of the Nickel Plate, Erie, and Buffalo Creek Rail Roads located in the southern part of the city. This task came with many hardships from the very start.

Manhattan is 13.4 miles long and approximately 2.3 miles wide. I've walked and photographed this island in search of locations where enslaved Africans lived, worked, loved, worshipped, and died. The photographs and data collected are documented in this book.

Newspaper ad from August 14, 1860 for Barnum's American Museum - The most delightful place of amusement in New York. Who would not give 25 cents to see the giant baby? 25 cents to see the albino family? 25 cents to see the great living sea lion? 25 cents to see the living what is it? 25 cents to see the living seal? 25 cents to see the grand aquaria? 25 cents to see the beautiful angel fish? 25 cents to see Tommy, the Japanese, represented in wax, and dressed in his own suit of clothes? Each of which thousands are daily testifying to be worth 25 CENTS TO SEE, yet all together, and the entire Museum, with its 850,000 curiosities, are to be seen for 25 cents. Children under 10 years, 15 cents. Sounds like it was an amazing museum and collection to see! Sadly the museum was destroyed by a fire in 1865. #museum #curiosities #cabinetofcuriosities #museums #19thcentury #barnum #americanhistory #advertising #advertisement #collecting #antiquecollection #antique #newyorkhistory #newyork #amusement #amusements #ptbarnum

"You Are Here..." talks about a person who was mockingly called a, "Black rascal," "mulatto," "Black," and "Spaniard." His birth name is Juan Rodriguez. He was of mixed African-European descent. His mother was African, his father was Portuguese, and he was born in the Dominican Republic. He explicitly declared himself a universally "free man." This book talks about his important role in Lower Manhattan over 400 years ago and how the neighborhood of Washington Heights honored him.

Old Putnam Trail. Van Cortland Park, The Bronx. Late day light from a couple weeks back. . . The 13 pillars. Railroad baron Commodore Cornelius Vanderbilt had these stone slabs shipped from different quarries to determine which would be most impervious to weathering - for building Grand Central Station in New York City. Despite the results of his experiment, Indiana limestone was chosen because it was cheaper to transport!

I am starting to dig my NYC neighborhood, it's taken me some time but I am getting there. This building is on 29th at 11th. Turns out John Young was an in-demand theatrical set designer, the building was constructed to his specs such that he could get his model sets and canvases out the door and to the theater. Cool, huh? From what I've read, the building is now occupied by an advertising agency so at least there is still a creative vibe bouncing off the walls. #OldNewYork #NewYorkHistory #StreetsofChelsea #StreetsOfNewYork
