  1. More on the Ever Present Nuns

    ...and don't forget those Franciscan Brothers. Brother Thomas had a brass ruler in which he had inscribed "Beatumplenty". Many a sore knuckle or buttocks felt the sting of that instrument of terror.
  2. Edwin Newman at the Fair

    I knew you folks would have seen this
  3. Edwin Newman at the Fair

    With the recent passing of the great NBC newsman Edwin Newman, a friend on Facebook posted the following clip.
  4. USS Atlas white cement for NYSP terrazzo

    Here are some shots of the Universal Atlas plant, in a little worse shape than NYSP. http://www.flickr.com/photos/forgottenpitt...57594520207660/
  5. 1941 NYC Kodachrome 3"x4" Transparency Restored

    Mike, for a picture of 80 Lafayette Street try Google. Most of NYC has been digitized from the top of a car. Click on streetview. http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&q=80...=1&ct=title

    Just stumbled on this about the NYSP: http://queenscrap.blogspot.com/2008/11/deb...oop-theory.html
  8. Some opposing viewpoints on the NYSP

    Thanks Al for bringing some sense to that blog. Not a nice bunch over there.
  9. 1966 Demolition Photos... Aerials!

    Great site! Thanks. This will help me with next week's homework assignment. I am currently attending St. John's University for my Master's in Library Science. This week we're studying map resources!

    Happy Birthday, Ray.
  11. Shea Stadium

    I went to last night's game. OUCH. It seemed that the Mets were just not in to it. It is sad to hear the language some fans yell when the game doesn't go the right way. Last night to me was special, not only was it the last night game played at Shea, it was the first time I took the LIRR from Woodside to Willets Point since the World's Fair!
  12. Getting ready for the U.S. Open

    I noticed on the way to and from work today that the LIRR has lots of orange vested personnel on the Woodside Station platform to "assist" the folks going to the US Open.

    Forgotten NY has a great piece on Flushing's Iron Triangle: http://forgotten-ny.com/NEIGHBORHOODS/iron...e/triangle.html
  14. What models are these 1964 Fords?

    Pictures 1 & 3 are more than likely 1965. Picture 2 is 1964. The car on the distant left is a '64 Mercury Monterey/Montclair/Park Lane. The car on the far right is a '64 Galaxie. Here's a good sight for all things Mercury: http://www.mercurystuff.com/
