Brooklyn Bridge Photography: The Brooklyn Bridge Turns 134 | Brownstoner

1 Share

It’s hard to imagine Brooklyn without its namesake bridge, but 134 years ago the Brooklyn Bridge was a sparkling new engineering wonder. Opened to the public on May 24, 1883 — after 14 years of construction — the bridge united Brooklyn and Manhattan and quickly became an iconic part of the waterfront skyline.

Brooklyn Bridge is now a must-see for tourists, a heavily used pedestrian pathway and, of course, one of the most photographed symbols of the borough.

In celebration of the anniversary, we’ve looked through our @brownstoner Instagram feed for the 10 most popular Brooklyn Bridge images we’ve ever posted.

Happy birthday to The Brooklyn Bridge

Historic terra cotta images on display in Coney • Brooklyn Paper

The king of the sea is re-surfacing at the People’s Playground!

The Coney Island History Project’s latest exhibit, “Neptune Revisited,” opening on May 27, will showcase weathered clay images of the oceanic deity and other nautical figures from the early 1920s. The artifacts once graced the walls of the historic, recently-restored Childs Restaurant on the Boardwalk, and the mini museum will offer visitors a unique, up-close look, said the project’s executive director.

“We have a small space, so it’s an intimate look at some of the original pieces that were beyond repair after a century of exposure to salt water air. They’re extraordinary craftsmans­hip,” said People’s Playground historian Charles Denson.

When the Childs Restaurant opened in 1923, it sported numerous nautical terra cotta images along its facade. Many of those clay creations crumbled over the last century, and the building’s new owners, who re-opened the space last week as Kitchen 21, worked to restore what they could. But some pieces that were irreparably damaged had to be replaced by painstaking replicas, and Denson finagled an indefinite loan of the original, weather-beaten artifacts for his exhibit at the Coney Island History Project, where they hang alongside a photographic timeline of the rise, decline and rejuvenation of the Childs building.

The terra cotta pieces include vivid beach scenes, an intricate tangle of sea creatures, and a vibrant portrait of the restaurant’s facade. But the show’s main draw is a striking ceramic medallion of King Neptune himself rising from the sea, holding a trident dripping with seaweed.

“King Neptune is the symbol of Coney Island. He’s kind of the guardian of the Boardwalk watching over us,” said Denson. “It’s an iconic image and he’s sort of the centerpiece of the show.”

The size of the hulking works will surprise visitors, said Denson.

“When they’re up on the building you can’t see the scale, but when you’re up close you see how massive they are,” he said. “So you can really get a good look.”

“Neptune Revisited: Terra Cotta Relics from the Childs Building, Last of Coney Island’s Boardwalk Palaces,” at the Coney Island History Project [3059 W. 12th Street, between Bowery Street and the Boardwalk, (347) 702–8553, www.coneyislandhistory.org]. Open weekends and holidays, 1–7 pm. Free.

Brooklyn Today May 23: From Belgorod to Brooklyn | Brooklyn Daily Eagle

1 Share
~FROM BELGOROD TO BROOKLYN, IN SEARCH OF A COMMUNITY THAT SAYS NYET TO HOMOPHOBIA: Last Saturday, about 200 people marched on the boardwalk for Brighton Beach Pride, which was billed as the world’s first Russian-speaking pride parade. While NYC is often viewed as a refuge for the LGBTQ community, many LGBTQ Russian immigrants complain that southern Brooklyn breeds the same anti-LGBTQ attitudes that they were fleeing. For many immigrants, the area offers the comforts of language and traditional foods, but “It was almost like I’d never left Russia,” one marcher told the NYT.“Being gay around here is a constant danger.” (via the NYT)

Published on May 23, 2017

Daniel R. Coats, director of national intelligence, and Marine
Corps Lt. Gen. Vincent R. Stewart, director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, testify before the Senate Armed Services Committee, May 23, 2017.

“I don’t feel it’s appropriate to characterize conversations with the president,” Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coates told the Senate Armed Services Committee on Tuesday.

Coates was called before the committee to discuss worldwide threats, but the first question – from Committee Chairman Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) — dealt with the latest leak to the Washington Post intended to undermine the Trump presidency.
