Bushwick, Brooklyn


What’s with all the AWESOME art in Bushwick? – “In 2012 the Bushwick-born Joe Ficalora invited street artists to paint murals on the walls of his factory. Ever since, Joe has been talking to the neighborhood property owners, securing their consent with painting of murals on their walls, and curating the world’s best street artists to paint them. Joe’s curatorial project is called The Bushwick Collective” – Bushwick Daily


New York City

Taxi!  – There are more forms of transportation in NYC than ever, but there’s nothing more New York than hailing a good ol’ yellow cab. The word “taxicab” is actually a mashup both “Taxi” (a shortened version of taximeter; a device invented in 1891 that calculates the distance traveled and the cost of a taxi ride) and “cab” (from “cabriolet,” a French word for a horse-drawn carriage).

 

One World Trade Center

How about those GREEN apples? “In addition to the many green features of the 1WTC tower—it was built from recycled construction debris and materials, and will generate power internally—the entire site was specially constructed to collect rainwater to help care for the plaza’s greenery, cool the building, and replenish the memorial fountain. Not to mention you can enjoy an ice cold Mermaid Pilsner on draft at the top!” – Readers Digest

 

Brooklyn Bridge

Sideshow Entertainers and Stunt Men were facinated by the Brooklyn Bridge!  “Circus entertainer P.T. Barnum took 21 elephants over the bridge in May 1884 to show that it was safe. The following year, Robert E. Odlum, a swimming instructor from Washington, D.C., became the first to leap into the East River below. He died, but a number of later jumpers survived, including one man allegedly trying to impress his girlfriend and another who wore large canvas wings. Other stuntmen have flown planes under the bridge and bungee jumped from or climbed its towers.” – History.com
