I'm so glad that the government and societies of Europe put more emphasis on saving old buildings!  

Alot of the "old" buildings are rebuilt to look like the old buildings after the war. They really arent that old.  This is especially true in the Federal Republic

No, 1993 isn't historic...

"Most of us have been conditioned to regard military combat as exciting and glamorous -- an opportunity for men to prove their competence and courage. Since armies are legal, we feel that war is acceptable; in general, nobody feels that that war is criminal or that accepting it is a criminal attitude. In fact, we have been brainwashed. War is neither glamorous nor attractive. It is monstrous. Its very nature is one of tragedy and suffering" --Dalai Lama

Look at all those streetlights.... they are all ON!  And I dont see broken Christmas lights wrapped around the poles held on with electrical tape?  

 

The Healthline lighting leaves a ton to be desired... both in its design and its maintenance.  Sad.

The spotlight provided navigation for airships that were seen as the future of air travel in the 1920s. This building was built with an airship station on the roof & later became part of the Sammy's restaurant chain. Its interior looks like a 1920s railroad station waiting room.

 

 

Enlarged....

I forgot about the airship station, so unbelievably cool.  Looks like Commissioner Gordon signaling Batman.  Thanks for sharing!

I've tried to scour google and local historical sites and haven't really been able to find any photos of the waiting room area. I feel like I saw something a long while ago, but have no idea where I found it-  do you have anything on your end?

From the story:

 

"There was a legend that the roof was also designed for a dirigible docking station, but the rooftop plans prepared by Graham, Anderson, Probst and White show no such station planned for the building, and no contemporary news articles or other primary sources have been discovered that prove the existence of, or plans for, either the station itself or any accessory buildings on the rooftop."

I believe the space has been closed for quite some time but I found this photo from Socially Artistic Wedding Planner's Facebook page. Always had a soft spot for this place; back in 2002 when they still served lunch, I signed my book deal with Arcadia Publishing right about where that round table on the far left is.

That's a fantastic photo. So many details to inspect in that great image.

I reduced the size for putting it on here, the original is about 50% larger of a file size (and detail). I'm impressed at the quality of some of these photo programs they were flying at the time.

Perhaps at the time. My father didn't know her until the mid-1980s. She was also quite a bit younger than Shondor, by something like 30 or 40 years.

 

Rick Porrello's latest book is about Shondor.   He says it was her, not the Murray Hill people everyone thought, who hired the bombers that blew up Danny's place on Waterloo.

Wait, Shondor's WIFE blew up Greene's apartment??

Ellie paid to have it done, according to Porrello.

 

I asked indirectly on his author page if this was new info, he says yes and thanks for not spoilering it on his page.

It's very difficult to stop the decline of existing neighborhoods when we are actively replacing them with new ones at the urban fringe and  the region is not growing.

In one of the threads (which I can't find) somebody wanted to see the old Nicholson Terminal (E55th and the lake) when it still was a terminal.  Here's one courtesy of a school friend whose father ran the terminal in the 50's and 60s.

 

The New York News was operated by the Ontario Paper Company of Thorold, Ontario, and delivered newsprint to the Cleveland papers.  Later the Bowater paper boats used the terminal along with Nicholson's own car transports.

 

Here you go:

All that I can hear while looking at this picture is the opening of "Papa was a rolling stone" by the Temptations...

Looking west on Clifton Boulevard at the intersection of West 117th Street at the border of Lakewood in Cleveland in 1951. The streetcar was eliminated 3 years earlier but the overhead trolley bus wires....

That looks like it was a pretty impressive building where the current US Bank Centre stands!
