TBT BQE during its development in 1961. “Every true New Yorker believes with all of his heart that when a New Yorker is tired of New York, he is tired of life.” -Robert Moses If you were to talk about NYC in one quote, what would it be?

Last week, I had the privilege of attending a meeting at Moynihan Train Hall to discuss their redevelopment through a P3. I also had the privilege of touring the redevelopment and I was impressed. They really thought out every piece of the hall. The architecture is phenomenal. I wasn’t able to upload pictures of the tour due to privacy reasons. Overall, it was a very informative meeting and private tour. #related   #p3   #publicprivatepartnership   #skanska   #empirestatedevelopment   #realestatedevelopment   #redevelopment   #development   #developers   #nyc   #nycinfrastructure  

Did you know the Park Avenue Tunnel used to carry horse-drawn streetcars? 🐎🐎 (photo via @museumofcityny)⠀ .⠀ The Park Avenue Tunnel, then called the Murray Hill Tunnel, was built in 1834 as an open cut trench for New York and Harlem Railroad traffic, including both steam engine-powered trains and horse-drawn vehicles. In 1850, the tunnel was covered over.⠀ .⠀ In 1871, tunnel traffic shifted to horse-drawn cars only, and three stations were added at the north and south ends, and at 38th Street, inside the tunnel. Electric streetcar service operated from 1898-1935, when the tunnel was closed for conversion to automobile traffic.⠀ .⠀ The church seen here at 10 Park Avenue is the Church of the Messiah (also known as the Second Congregational Church in New York). The parish dated to 1825 but this permanent home for the congregation was completed in 1868. Designed by German-born architect Carl Pfeiffer in a mix of Gothic and Romanesque styles. After a renovation in 1918, a fire in 1919, and a new name (Community Church) and change into a wider non-denominational organization around the same time, the church leased the site and the building was soon demolished. An Art Deco high rise rose in its place.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ 📸: Langill & Bodfish⠀ ca. 1890⠀ via @museumofcityny⠀ #urbanarchive   #nychistory   #murrayhill   #parkavenuetunnel   #trolley   #streetcar   #railroad   #cartraffice   #nycinfrastructure   #church   demolished ⠀ Join Urban Archive 📱 [link in bio]

Rising sea levels are threatening coastal apartments, yet contractors continue to build million dollar high rises on the water. With water levels rising the city has pledged more to allocate $20 billion over the next 10 years on “climate resiliency”!

It’s a Crumbling Road to Despair. Can New York Fix the B.Q.E.? Do you read this article in the @nytimes on Wednesday?

OnThisDay in 1870 construction on the Brooklyn Bridge began! 🔨🔩👷🏼🌉 (photos via @museumofcityny and averylibrary) ⠀ .⠀ Completed 13 years later at the cost $15 million, the Brooklyn Bridge was the largest suspension bridge in the world (until 1903 when 4.5 more feet gave the Williamsburg Bridge the title). Its original engineer John Roebling died a few months before construction began following an accident that crushed his foot and led to fatal gangrene and tetanus. His son Washington A. Roebling who took over the project became incapacitated by decompression illness, also known as the bends or caisson disease, in the summer of 1872. The final ten years of work were overseen by Washington's wife Emily Warren Roebling. She later wrote "I have more brains, common sense and know-how generally than have any two engineers, civil or uncivil, and but for me the Brooklyn Bridge would never have had the name Roebling in any way connected with it!”⠀ .⠀ Swipe to see the bridge during construction! The sign says: "Safe for only 25 men at one time. Do not walk close together, nor run, jump or trot. Break Step!"⠀ .⠀ .⠀ 📸: Arthur Vitols | Byron Company/ 1903/ @museumofcityny⠀ 📸: unknown, Old York Collection/ 1870-1883/ #averylibrary⠀   #urbanarchive   #nychistory   #brooklynbridge   #NYCbridges   #landmark   #icon   #Roebling   #engineer   #EmilyWarenRoebling   #construction   #nycinfrastructure   DayinHistory ⠀ Join Urban Archive 📱 [link in bio]

Yesterday morning The Mayor appeared on Morning Joe to discuss the deal he struck with Amazon to bring jobs to the LIC area. As I was watching, I was reminded of Fred Willard in Wall-E, explaining the garbage initiative designed to save the Earth that ultimately failed and led to the exile of the human race from the planet 🌎. #amazon   #lic   #nyc   #politics   #corporateamerica   #taxincentives   #nycinfrastructure   #mayordiblasio   #theroadtohellispavedwithgoodintentions  

It is *SUPER* rare that we can document more than 200 years (!) of history at a location in New York City. But here is the changing looks of the southwest corner of Broadway and Canal Street (415 Broadway/296 Canal). This series depicts the transformation from 1812>1905>1928>2018. (photos via @gvshp_nyc, @nycfiremuseum, @museumofcityny and @google)⠀ .⠀ 1. The Stone Bridge Tavern, ca. 1812. The stone bridge was erected here in the late 18th century likely to "facilitate access to the fortifications near the Collect Pond." The bridge also allowed for the extension of the city's widest street (Broadway) over the canal which gave the street its name (and was covered over as a sewer ca. 1820). The tavern ("a resort for pleasure seekers") likely dated to the same period, and though long lost, is immortalized in subway mosaics at the BMT Canal Street station. (@gvshhp_nyc)⠀ .⠀ 2. Canal Street looking west from SW corner of Broadway, ca. 1905. This photograph documents the laying of the pipes for the high pressure water system. Between the 1850s and 1890s the plot at left was a hotel and in 1912 a new 12-story loft and office building called the Brandreth Building was erected. (@nycfiremuseum)⠀ .⠀ 3. National City Bank, 1928. Founded as the City Bank of New York in 1812, the National City Bank of New York boomed post World War I. In need of new branches, they purchased a plot from another bank on the corner of Broadway and Canal. Designed in a sleek, white Art Moderne style by Walker & Gillette, the building was completed in 1927. The massive entrance was topped by Deco stylized eagles surrounding the bank's seal. The bank, after various name changes, became Citibank in 1976, and remained in this building until the 1990s. Later the Canal Street storefronts included a Payless Shoes and Sbarro Pizza. It was a Duane Reade for a short time a few years ago (Wurts Bros., @museumofcityny)⠀ .⠀ 4. 415 Broadway today. According to an August 2018 article on one of the neighborhood blogs, the building is to become a food hall, though that is unconfirmed.⠀ .⠀ #urbanarchive   #nychistory   #transformationtuesday   #colonial   #broadway   #canal   #bank   #artmoderne   #nycinfrastructure   #history
