“Out the windows, drifts of powder whirled through the quiet streets. A blizzard didn’t mean much to us. In the warmth of St. Vincent’s, the city below, buried in snow, seemed like another world. Most patients drew their blinds throughout the day, regardless of the weather. Unlike the curtains that separated patients in our mostly semi-private rooms, our doors remained open. Only visitors closed them.” From #ghostsofstvincents by #tomeubanks #croninbuilding #winter1995 #stvincentshospital #stvincentstrianglepark #aidsmemorial #nycaidsmemorial #nycam #gayliterature #lgbtliterature #nycliterature #nychistory #greenwichvillage #greedwichlane #lgbtbooks2017 #gaybooks2017 #readitandtweet #❄️👻❄️👻

Painting in my Charleston and Brooklyn studios. I like to work in a space with history and character. Underbelly Studio (CHS) was formerly a brothel in the mid 1900s. My current work space, Tooth & Nail Studio (NYC), is in a brownstone built in the late 1800's by the Irish. It's a block away from a park that used to host the circus in the early 1900s. Two blocks south was all farmland. #art #artist #painting #painter #popart #history #charleston #brooklyn #gallery #comics #illustration #design #model #muse #beautiful #nyc #nycartist #nychistory #chshistory

New York has a network of pipes that move steam around the city, delivering it to buildings just like electricity. This hot steam is used for a variety of purposes, including cooling buildings. Fact via slate

1905 - Photo taken from the top of the Brooklyn Bridge tower (Manhattan side). At the end at Park Row was the Terminal shed, where commuters embarked or disembarked to other mass transit options: trolleys and elevated train lines. Each end of the Brooklyn Bridge had one of these sheds.

Back in the last century, there was a convention center on New York City’s Columbus Circle. It was called the New York Coliseum. One of the projects built by the infamous infrastructure overlord, Robert Moses, it was never the prettiest edifice. Fifty workers were killed during it construction. It used to host New York's famed auto show. By the time the New York Coliseum was shut down in 1987, it had fallen to seed. It wasn't much when I entered there in the early 1980s as a Cub Scout attending a local jamboree. It was a place for peddlers and homeless people to do their business when I attended high school nearby in the 1960s. Not pretty in the first place, it became an eyesore. Eventually, after numerous failed efforts to sell the property and tear it down, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority finally sold it to a developer, who then replaced the low-slung cement structure with the glitzy, glassy Time Warner Center. Methinks this is a proper - and better - skyscraper for this little spot of heaven in the Big Apple. #architecture #NewYork #nyc #nyskyscraper #timewarnercenter #architecturalphotography #nychistory timewarnerbuildingnyc

Untitled 1947-9⠀ ⠀ ----------------------------------------------⠀ Exhibition (link in bio): "EVIDENCE OF WONDER" Works by Theodoros Stamos (1922 – 1997)⠀ Showing: November 4 through December 23⠀ ----------------------------------------------⠀ Theodoros Stamos (1922 – 1997) was born in New York. He was the youngest member of the Abstract Expressionists also known as The New York School. Along with Jackson Pollock, Willem De Kooning, Mark Rothko, Richard Pousette-Dart and other members of the group, Stamos became widely recognized as an important and leading abstract painter. Together, the Abstract Expressionists became the first American artists to receive worldwide attention and the period would eventually be recognized as the first international art movement to originate in America.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Initially inspired by nature and biomorphic forms his paintings evolved into large-scale color abstractions in which light seems to drift through translucent screens. The works from the Infinity series were inspired by Greece and the time the artist spent there during his lifetime.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ In 1943 he had his first solo exhibition at the Wakefield Gallery/Bookshop Gallery and in 1946 the Museum of Modern Art, New York purchased a painting by the artist. His work can be found in numerous public collections, worldwide.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ He is the recipient of many awards including Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Fellowship (1951); National Institute of Arts and Letters Award (1956); Mainichi Newspaper prize at the 6th Tokyo International (1961) and National Arts Foundation Award (1968) among others.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #theodorosstamos #theodorosstamosart #theodorosstamosgallery #abstractart #abstract #abstractexpressionist #abstractexpressionists #infinityseries ⠀ ⠀ #acagallery #acagalleries #acagallerystudio #nycartscene #nycartlife #newyorkart #newyorkartscene #newyorkartgallery #newyorkartgalleries #newyorklife #museums #nycartscollective #nycartworld #nycartcollector #nychistory #nycartgallery #nycartscene #nycart #nycartist #nycartists

Did you know there were 30 breweries in Manhattan alone before Prohibition? ?To honor this legacy, we have created The New York Historic Beer Series. It is our tribute to the original NYC brewing pioneers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. As our third offering of the series, we’re bringing back Jacob Ruppert Brewery DoppelBock. #heartlandbrewery #jacobruppert #craftbeer #craftbeernyc #historyofbeer #midtownwest #timessquare #empirestate #dopplebock #pilsner #craftbeersnob #discovernyc #nychistory #oldschool #onlyinny #historicnyc
