Manhattan Bridge
philadelphia travel company
Image by Ed Yourdon
The expanse of the Manhattan Bridge was too large for me to capture with a simple wide-angle lens … so I took a panorama shot and let the camera stitch all the details together.

The view here is looking to the north, with the Williamsburg Bridge visible in the background.

Note: I chose this as my "photo of the day" for Oct 26, 2014.

*******************************

Because I work and live in Manhattan, I don’t often visit the four other boroughs of New York City … but there’s a magical place in Brooklyn that I want to tell you about, located in Brooklyn Bridge Park at the edge of the East River. It’s right on the water, framed by the Manhattan Bridge on the north and the Brooklyn Bridge on the south. A few NYC residents and perhaps even a few visitors are already nodding their heads as they read this, but I suspect that most readers of these Flickr notes are as oblivious as I was, and have never heard of Jane’s Carousel.

“Jane” is, as I’ve now learned, Jane Walentas, an artist who spent 20 years overseeing the restoration of a magnificent 48-horse carousel, created by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company, and first installed in a park in Youngstown, Ohio in 1922. Ms. Walentas and her husband, David, bought the carousel and the wooden horses at an auction in 1984 for 5,000; I have no idea what inspired them to do so, or what could possibly have inspired Jane to spend the next 20 years scraping off layers of paint and restoring the original design and colors, the pin-striping and the gold leaf as the carousel sat in a studio in Dumbo (for the non-New Yorkers who might have stumbled onto this page of notes, “DUMBO” is an acronym that means “Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass).

Anyway, the carousel was opened in mid-September 2011, and for reasons unknown, I was completely oblivious as to its existence for the next three years. It’s located in a million transparent acrylic “jewel box” that was designed by the French architect Jean Novel, and it’s absolutely stunning to see. My wife coaxed me into taking the somewhat laborious subway ride from the Upper West Side (via the “C” and the “F” trains) over to Brooklyn a couple days ago, and we were lucky to have chosen a brilliantly sunny Saturday afternoon, arriving just at the beginning of the “golden hour” when the light was perfect for photography.

In the three years since it opened, Jane’s Carousel has apparently attracted a lot of attention: there were some New Yorkers like me wandering around, and some visitors from nearby New Jersey and Long Island … but I also heard and saw evidence of visitors from France, Germany, Russia, Japan, Korea, and a lot of other places which would normally have great difficulty distinguishing Brooklyn from the Bronx or Staten Island. You can arrange birthday parties at the carousel; and there were heavily-costumed bridal parties along with the dog-walkers, the photographers, and the tour boats (including the venerable Circle Line) cruising up and down the East River.

And speaking of the East River, one of the most dazzling aspects of this place is the view that you get, with the two mammoth bridges spanning the river, along with the Wall Street skyline, the South Street Seaport, and the massive Freedom Tower in the background. Even if you didn’t spend a minute looking at the brightly painted carousel horses, and listening to the hypnotic music of the carousel, you could easily spend the afternoon watching the tugboats and sailboats and barges and ferries, the cruise boats and the motorboats chugging up and down the river. One can only imagine what it must have been like a century ago, before the railroads and jet planes had eliminated the bulk of water travel.

I’m embarrassed that it took me so long to visit this place, and I hope that you’ll take the hint and go see it yourself, at your first opportunity. If you would like to see some more details about the place, you might want to start with the official website for Jane’s Carousel, located here:

NFLs Troy Vincent Makes USO Visit to Germany and Delivers Keynote Address at NCO Induction Ceremony


Arlington, VA (PRWEB) May 05, 2014

Former Pro Bowl defensive back turned NFL executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent participated in his first USO tour to Germany May 1st 2nd. While in the region, Vincent toured the USO Warrior Center, visited with wounded warriors and medical staff at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center and delivered an inspirational keynote address at the Army Medical Enlisted Birthday Celebration and NCO Induction Ceremony at Vogelweh Air Base.

DETAILS:


By close of his USO visit to Germany, Vincent visited with more than 800 troops, military families, hospital personnel and volunteers.
Vincents USO tour kicked off on May 1st with a visit to the USO Warrior Center, where he toured the 3,400 sq. ft. facility, attended a USO Warrior Center BBQ alongside troops and signed autographs for wounded warriors.
The good times continued on May 2nd, when Vincent walked the halls of Landstuhl Regional Medical Center and spent quality time talking with wounded warrior in the Intensive Care Unit and various hospital wards. Later that evening, Vincent attended the Army Medical Department Enlisted Corp dinner and NCO Induction Ceremony, and provided heartfelt words of encouragement and thanks to hospital staff for their commitment to medical attention and care given to wounded warriors and their families.
In addition to inducting more than 36 non-commissioned officers, the event commemorated the 127th Year Observance of the Medical Enlisted Corp.
On March 19, 2014, Vincent was named NFL executive vice president of football operations. In this role, he oversees all aspects of football operations in the league office with a focus on quality and innovation. His responsibilities include officiating, integrity of the game, on-field discipline, game operations, player personnel and college relations, among other duties.
Vincent joined the NFL office in 2010 to lead the league’s player engagement department, which provides support programs for players and their families. He was promoted to senior vice president in 2013 and has recruited more than 200 NFL former players as ambassadors to help implement the department’s programs.
Vincent was a first-round draft choice of the Miami Dolphins in 1992. A cornerback from the University of Wisconsin, Vincent played 15 years in the NFL for the Miami Dolphins, Philadelphia Eagles, Buffalo Bills, and Washington Redskins. He was named a Pro Bowl player five times and was the winner of the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award in 2002. Prior to his current position, Vincent served as president of the NFL Players Association from 2004-2008.
This USO trip marks the continuation of the NFLs long history of honoring veterans and active duty military members through its annual Salute to Service campaign, which is designed to celebrate and support the contributions of the military community.
