Keen trompe l’oeil by Richard Haas/1977 on the side wall of a Consolidated Edison building on Peck Slip ~ illusionist view of the Brooklyn Bridge through a classical colonnade. 💡💡💡💡💡💡💡💡💡💡💡💡💡💡💡💡💡
Thomas Edison’s first electric generating system was located quite near this location in 1822 ~ the first commercial generating system for incandescent service in the country. Site selection was due to the nearby financial community ~ first light turned on at 23 Wall Street. ⚓️⚓️⚓️⚓️⚓️⚓️⚓️⚓️⚓️⚓️⚓️⚓️⚓️
Peck Slip was named for Benjamin Peck who ran ship-fitting business here in the 1700’s ~ in 1775, the slip was built, and in 1763 the Slip Market which was a predecessor of the Fulton Market.
Las antenas de los rascacielos son una parte importante sobre todo cuando se trata de batir récords, siendo un recurso habitual para ganar unos metros más y pasar por encima de la competencia en los cielos. Y hay una que tiene una curiosa historia y además es, junto al perfil del edificio, uno de los símbolos de Nueva York.
La antena del #EmpireState fue en algún momento pensada como un lugar para que los dirigibles ( el transporte del futuro en la época ) pudieran recoger y dejar personas.
Had the great pleasure of visiting the Museum at Eldridge Street this past weekend, a restored synagogue from the 19th century now designated as a National Historic Landmark. The architecture is absolutely stunning - if you haven't visited yet I strongly recommend making the trip down to the Lower East Side to see it.
I don’t remember when I started to embrace color in my life (not only in my clothes) but happy I did. It helps with the NL regular weather but also it matches my happy slice of personality. Which I am happy I finally I let it out to run around and soften hearts around.
