Broadway was originally the Wickquasgeck Trail, carved into Manhattan by its Native American inhabitants. This trail originally snaked through swamps and rocks along the length of Manhattan Island. It is the oldest north–south main thoroughfare in New York City, dating to the first New Amsterdam settlement. The name Broadway is the English literal translation of the Dutch name, Breede weg.

Fairies Are Real



Fairies Are Real. Once upon a time, and not a great while ago either, there lived in the city of New York ...

The Irish word for fairy is sheehogue \sidhe6g\ a diminutive of "shee" in banshee. Fairies are deenee shee [daotne sidhe] (fairy people).

Who are they ?" Fallen angels who were not good enough to be saved, nor bad enough to be lost," say the peasantry. "The gods of the earth," says the Book of Armagh. "The gods of pagan Ireland," say the Irish antiquarians, "the Tuatha De Dandn, who, when no longer worshipped and fed with offerings, dwindled away in the popular imagination, and now are only a few spans high."

Echinacea coneflowers at Time Landscape



Late July in Greenwich Village, New York City at the northeast corner of La Guardia Place and West Houston Street. Nine species of coneflowers and i think they were all here at Time Landscape, a living art recreation of Manhattan in the early 17th century. :)

Echinacea is a genus, or group of herbaceous flowering plants in the daisy family, Asteraceae. The nine species it contains are commonly called coneflowers.

Time Landscape - Landscape artist Alan Sonfist created Time Landscape as a living monument to the forest that once covered Manhattan. He proposed the project in 1965, after research on New York’s botany, geology, and history Sonfist and local community members used native trees, shrubs, wild grasses, flowers, plants, rocks, and earth to plant the plot at the northeast corner of La Guardia Place and West Houston Street in 1978. The results are a slowly developing forest that represents the Manhattan landscape in the early 17th century.

Heinkel He 111 medium bomber



The CASA 2.111 was a medium bomber derived from the Heinkel He 111 and produced in Spain by Construcciones Aeronauticas SA. Following the Spanish Civil War, the Spanish Air Force received a number of He 111Bs from Germany. However, there was a need for more modern aircraft with increased armament, and CASA negotiated a contract with Heinkel in 1940 to produce the newer He 111H-16.

DAYTON, Ohio -- CASA 2.111H (Spanish HE-111H) is currently in storage at the National Museum of the United States Air Force. (U.S. Air Force photo) Donated by the Spanish Air Force.

The Puppeteers' renown for honesty in trading allowed the species to accumulate an expansive mercantile empire called General Products; since the human Bronze Age, the Puppeteers have ruled this empire including every race in the 60-LY sphere of Known Space. One of the most important items sold by General Products is the General Products Hull for spaceships. As one might expect from a Puppeteer, such a hull is completely impervious to everything except antimatter (which is not highly advertised but covered by a company warranty;

New York more aggressively prosecuted the crime (the same site was used for 18 known duels between 1700 and 1845). In an attempt to prevent the participants from being prosecuted, procedures were implemented to give all witnesses plausible deniability. For example, the pistols were transported to the island in a portmanteau, enabling the rowers (who also stood with their backs to the duelists) to say under oath that they had not seen any pistols.

Balto (1919 – March 14, 1933) was a Siberian Husky sled dog who led his team on the final leg of the 1925 serum run to Nome, in which diphtheria antitoxin was transported from Nenana, Alaska, to Nome by dog sled to combat an outbreak of the disease. The run is commemorated by the annual Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. Balto was named after the Sami explorer and adventurer Samuel Balto. Balto died at the age of 14.

The first version was created in 1936 by Oscar Mayer's nephew, Carl G. Mayer, and variants are still used by the Oscar Mayer company today. Drivers of the Wienermobiles are known as Hotdoggers and often hand out toy whistles shaped as replicas of the Wienermobile, known as Wienerwhistles.

It was finished in 1871, and served as his lines' terminus in New York. He sank the tracks on 4th Avenue in a cut that later became a tunnel, and 4th Avenue became Park Avenue. The depot was replaced by Grand Central Terminal in 1913.

Battle of Gettysburg Pickett's Charge clipart

Elements of the two armies initially collided at Gettysburg on July 1, 1863, as Lee urgently concentrated his forces there, his objective being to engage the Union army and destroy it. Low ridges to the northwest of town were defended initially by a Union cavalry division under Brig. Gen. John Buford, and soon reinforced with two corps of Union infantry. However, two large Confederate corps assaulted them from the northwest and north, collapsing the hastily developed Union lines, sending the defenders retreating through the streets of town to the hills just to the south.
