Across the Narrows, I caught a good shot of the Battery Weed. Designed by Robert E. Lee and built to defend the Narrows from potential naval invasion, Battery Weed is a part of the Fort Wadsworth complex. Used by the military until 1994, it is one of the remaining forts that defended New York from sea attack. At its peak 116 guns were manned at the Weed, and today it is a NYC landmark and a National Park. Staten Island as a whole is home to some amazing and interesting places. From old distinguished forts to abandoned (and possibly haunted) psychiatric hospitals Staten Island has an intense history that is often overlooked by the Manhattan/Brooklyn centric focus.

Stuck in traffic. Left is the Courthouse, the Wall is the Brooklyn Bridge foundation and that sliver of bldg on the right is the Woolworth Building, constructed between 1910 and 1912, is an early US skyscraper. By January 18, 1911, Woolworth and Hogan had acquired the final site for the project, totaling $4.5 million. More than a century after its construction, it remains, at 241.4 meters (792 ft), one of the 100 tallest buildings in the United States as well as one of the 30 tallest buildings in New York City. It has been a National Historic Landmark since 1966 and a New York City landmark since #wikipedia #woolworthbuilding #courthouse #manhatten #brooklynbridge #entrance #stuckintraffic #ilovenya #history #newyorkhistory

Stuck in Traffic: The Brooklyn Bridge is a hybrid cable-stayed/suspension bridge in New York City and is one of the oldest bridges in the United States. Started in 1869 and completed fourteen years later in 1883, it connects the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn by spanning the East River. It has a main span of 1,595.5 feet (486.3 m) and was the first steel-wire suspension bridge constructed. It was originally called the New York and Brooklyn Bridge and the East River Bridge, but it was later dubbed the Brooklyn Bridge, a name coming from an earlier January 25, 1867, letter to the editor of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle and formally so named by the city government in 1915. Since opening, it has become an icon of New York City and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1964 and a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark in 1972. #wikipedia #brooklynbridge #workofart #archeticture #sorrybusytakecare #stuckintraffic #beautifulnight #history #newyorkhistory #unification

Now that is a wall of windows. And a clock. The EV Haughwout building near Prince & Broadway has one of Soho’s oldest surviving cast iron fronts, boasted the first ever passenger elevator & housed dry goods from 1854-1870. Shot yesterday in one of the world’s most historic & one of my most loved neighborhoods.

I watched the Netflix documentary "The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson" last night, and it's stayed in my thoughts all day. Watch it! The movie has its issues, but for the most part, I believe it's an extremely important watch. Many in the gay rights movement have historically betrayed our trans brothers and sisters, and this movie teaches that shameful history in a way that reveals our moral and ethical obligations today to our trans sisters and brothers. It also celebrates the life of an extraordinary trans woman who brought so much positivity to so many people's lives. And she was one of the original Stonewall rioters, so that alone should prompt us to honor her and demand justice for her murder--as well as for our trans sisters who continue, to this day, to be murdered at a sickeningly skewed rate and with seemingly little consequence or call to arms. #transgender #transrights #glbqthistory #glbtq #glbtpride #gay #gaypride #marshajohnson #marshapjohnson #thedeathandlifeofmarshapjohnson #gayrights #stonewall #westvillage #gaylife #tranny #stonewallriots #transwoman #rivera #gayicon #blackgay #civilrights #chealseapiers #gaysofcolor #civilrightsmovement #gayrightsmovement #gayrights #transgenderrights #justice #newyorkhistory #blacktrans #justiceformarsha

🌎 Hello, friends! 🌎 . Taking advantage of the unusually warm weather here in New York this October, Prof. Carl De Angelis and his NYU ALI students visited the National September 11 Memorial and Museum here in New York. We understand they had a very moving time. The museum and memorial commemorate the September 11, 2001 attacks and the World Trade Center bombing of 1993. . Since our ALI classes are held in the Woolworth Building, less than two city blocks from Ground Zero, many in this building lived through the attacks. For this reason, the museum and memorial are very important to us. We believe sharing feelings and experiences with our students and doing whatever we can to make sure this never happens again is an important part of our job. . Carl’s international students also interviewed and videoed 🎥 memorial spectators in order to understand the impact the exhibitions and 9/11 itself had on them. If you swipe left through the four pictures in this post, you will see students interviewing two people in the last photo. We are proud of everyone for this great work. 👍 . Better communication, better understanding and better love are effective weapons against hate. ❤️

Angelica Morales was an only child, born in New York to parents who were once prominent in Cuban society. But Angelica's father, a lawyer, died early, leaving Angelica and her mother Frances to fend for themselves. Angelica bolstered their income by taking commissions as an expert shopper for wealthy Cubans. They would send her their list of desired items, and she would shop for them and ship everything south on their behalf. When this became insufficient, Angelica took a job as a saleswoman at the Marseilles Style Shop, on Broadway at 103rd Street. But the job didn't last long, because the shop's long hours interfered with Angelica's true passion: dancing to live music at the city's great hotels. Often, she was escorted by a shadowy suitor known only as "Bob," and she would regularly bring along Frances as well. Angelica was devoted to her mother, and the two were rarely seen apart. She worried, though, that this devotion would prevent her from ever being able to marry. Tuesday, April 14, 1925 began like any day for the mother and daughter: they ate an early breakfast at home on W 91st Street, then made their way to Stern Bros. department store near Bryant Park to work on a shopping commission. At 1:00, Angelica told her mother she would go hear the music at the Hotel Commodore, and to wait for her at Stern's. Angelica walked to the hotel, near Grand Central, and requested a room for herself, saying she was visiting from Boston. She ascended to room 2249, walked to the window, climbed through, and plunged 22 stories to the street below. She landed atop a delivery cart on the west side of the hotel, and rolled onto the pavement. She was declared dead at the scene. Her purse was found in the hotel room, and from that, police called her home. Frances then called home, worried after not hearing from Angelica for more than 30 minutes, and was told the police were looking for her. Devastated, Frances claimed that Angelica had been "nervous" for 3 weeks prior. Friends were stunned by news of her death: "Why, she was engaged! She would be the last one in the world to die." Whatever caused Angelica to end her life so dramatically, she took those secrets with her.

A brave Irishman that fell at Gettysburg... This is the grave of Private Daniel Mahoney, born in Ireland he enlisted at the age of 21 in New York City on September 19th 1861, & was mustered into “B” Co. 69th New York Infantry the next day. He was in the following engagements, The Peninsula Campaign, The Seven Days Battles, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, & Gettysburg, where he was wounded in action on July 2nd while fighting in the Wheatfield. Private Mahoney would die two days later at the age of 23. He was survived by his mother who received a pension, this was but a small tribute to help with her great loss. Let us always remember both of their sacrifices for their adopted home land.
