Free Walking Tours NYC : William Tecumseh Sherman Statue

Free Walking Tours NYC : William Tecumseh Sherman Statue GrandArmyPlaza in New York City’s Central Park received its most iconic marker, the Sherman equestrian statue, on Memorial Day 1903. The sculpture features Sherman astride his horse with its right hoof slightly raised. The horse’s rear hoofs are orchestrated atop a series of Georgian pine, a subtle reference to the Sherman’s famed March to the Sea. Leading Sherman is a winged figure with a large palm frond in her left hand while her right arm is extended as if pointing the way to “Victory” for the General. The statue has been ornately covered in a gold leaf that adds to the sculpture’s brilliance. When the sculpture was being constructed, its designer Augustus Saint-Gaudens mandated that the work be covered in two layers of gold to ensure the statue maintained its skin and did not take on a “smoke stack” appearance.

Saint-Gaudens was commissioned to create the sculpture of Sherman in 1892 shortly after the General’s death the year prior. Already a noted artist for his creations of the Diana statue that formerly resided atop Madison Square Garden and the Robert Gould Shaw Memorial within the Boston Common, he was known for both his elegance and perfectionism that led to the works being unveiled a bit less timely than most artists. For instance, Saint-Gaudens spent fourteen years working on the Robert Gould Shaw Memorial before he deemed it complete. Fortunately park officials only had to wait eleven years for the unveiling of the Sherman statue.

To create a likeness of Sherman, Saint-Gaudens leveraged a prior bust he had created by the General in 1888. While sculpting the bust, Sherman posed for eighteen two-hour sessions for the artist to ensure he accurately captured the man’s image. During one, especially lengthy session, it was reported that Saint-Gaudens instructed Sherman to re-button his shirt collar which had become disheveled. Sherman retorted back to the artist that, “The General of the Army of the United States will wear his coat any damn way he pleases.”

Saint-Gaudens used another model as his inspiration for the image of the winged “Victory”. Harriette (“Hettie”) Eugenia Anderson was an African-American model whose image Saint-Gaudens also captured in his design of the Indian Head eagle coin that was minted between 1907 and 1916.

During his eleven years of laboring over the sculpture, Saint-Gaudens became ill and his presence at the unveiling was documented as being quite frail. Unfortunately the Sherman Memorial would be Saint-Gaudens’ last significant work as he passed away four years later in 1907.

Thanks in part to Saint-Gaudens’ obsessive request to ensure two layers of gold leaf on the Sherman Memorial, it maintained its glamour longer than many sculptures. By 1989, however, the statue had started to show signs of wear and tear and the monument was restored.

As to the man himself, Sherman was born William Tecumseh Sherman on February 8, 1820. His unique middle name has long been a source of speculation as to its derivation. Various accounts have been reported over the years. Sherman himself claimed his father suggested the name in honor of the great Shawnee leader who had attempted to unite the tribes in the Ohio Valley versus Americans encroaching on their lands. Other accounts, such as the one published in a 1932 biography, claim that Tecumseh was not even Sherman’s middle name but his first. The biography states that “William” was first given to him as a good Christian name later in life at the age of nine or ten by his then foster mother, Maria Ewing.

At the age of sixteen Sherman enrolled in the United States Military Academy at West Point. Although he would later be declared the first “modern” general and become recognized for his efforts in ending the Civil War, Sherman was not always considered prime cadet material. Sherman recalled, “At the Academy (West Point) I was not considered a good soldier, for at no time was I selected for any office, but remained a private throughout the whole four years.”

Sherman proved his worth over the course of the Civil War, though in key battles such as Bull Run and Shiloh. His tenacity made him a natural leader that led others to follow. His resolve was demonstrated for instance, in the Battle of Shiloh where, despite having three horses shot out from under him and being wounded on two separate occasions (in the hand and shoulder), he continued his pursuit of the enemy. Sherman’s success would lead him to being promoted to major general in 1862.

Perhaps Sherman’s most noted encounter during the Civil War was his infamous March to the Sea in November 1864. After capturing the city of Atlanta for the Union army his troops set fire to the city. Sherman later stated that he never intended for the complete destruction of Atlanta as occurred, since he only instructed his troops to burn munitions factories and other resources of the Confederate army. By the time all was said and done, though, Sherman and his troops had left a trail of destruction that measured sixty miles between Atlanta and Savannah. Although criticized as being inhumane by some, the tactics used had the effect of requiring Confederate troops to scatter and led to their surrender shortly thereafter.

Upon conclusion of the war, Sherman retired to a townhouse on West 71st Street in New York City. He would often spend his time in retirement riding his horse in Central Park. When not riding, Sherman also began work on his personal Memoirs which were published in 1875. These Memoirs are considered one of the best historical accounts of the Civil War. Accepting an invite to share his personal accounts to the graduate class of the Michigan Military Academy in 1879, Sherman explained to students that “War is hell.” His usage of the phrase is the first documented account of an expression that would grace many a politician and soldier’s lips in the years to come. Sherman remained in New York City for the remainder of his days. The general passed away at the age of seventy-one in 1891.

Boston Walking Tours : Samuel Appleton Building

Boston Walking Tours : Samuel Appleton Building  at 1 Liberty Square is a 1926 Classical Revival Building. It is thirteen stories in height and the most dominant feature is the rounded front façade, again, indicative of the Classical Revival style.

Samuel Appleton Building

Atop the front door are a series of bronze and stone friezes worthy of further inspection. Immediately over the door are twenty-one bronze figures in a 3×7 pattern over the words, “The Employers’ Liability Assurance Corporation Limited.” Each of the workers depicted within the individual friezes are performing a series of manual labors such as sawing, hammering or carving. Situated over the bronze friezes are granite symbols signifying various trades such as shipping and manufacturing for which the former insurance firm undoubtedly covered.

Finally, a larger robed figure holding a sword and shield oversees it all as she stands stoically overseeing this all. Seemingly this figure is meant to represent Employers’ Liability’s capabilities in overseeing (and providing insurance coverage?) over all of the trades and industries depicted on its front façade.

Samuel Appleton was a prominent figure in the insurance industry in Boston for years and the building is named after his former offices. Those former offices have since been taken over by a series of legal and financial advisory firms.

Boston Walking Tour Sacred Heart Church Tampa

Boston Walking Tour Sacred Heart Church Tampa - Situated within Boston’s Little Italy (the North End) and just a short distance from the Paul Revere House is the historic Sacred Heart Church.

Sacred Heart actually began as The Seamen’s Bethel in 1833. A bethel, for those unaware, is a chapel for seafarers. In 1876, a faction of individuals from nearby St. Leonard’s Church broke off to formulate Sacred Heart, the second Italian church is the area. As the 1st Italian church, St. Leonards had brought together Italians from many various regions. With so many regions (and religious views) represented in a single congregation, a small faction eventually separated to create an alternative place of worship for the Italian community.

The congregation which moved here was said to have been home to one of the most famous orators and preachers of its day. People from all around would come to hear the speeches of “Father” Taylor, who was a former sailor himself. Among those whom traveled to hear the wisdoms of “Father” Taylor included Walt Whitman and Charles Dickens. Herman Melville even based his character Father Mapple in the novel Moby Dick, based upon Father Taylor.

Boston Walking Tours : Paul Revere House

Boston Walking Tours Paul Revere House - Located within the heart of Boston’s North End (the Little Italy neighborhood) is Paul Revere’s former home at 19 North Square. The home, mind you, to which he could not even return to for a full year after his famous midnight ride for fear of his life.

This brown clapboard with high pitched roof is actually the oldest home in downtown Boston, having been built in 1680. Revere purchased this house in 1770. To help pay for his home Paul had to undertake numerous jobs. Occupations which Revere held included gold and silver smithing (a trade he learned from his father), political cartoonist (including his famous depiction of the Boston Massacre), copper plate engraver, book plate manufacturer (a small label on the inside cover of a book which would signify the owner of the book), and business card designer.

Boston Walking Tours Paul Revere House
Boston Walking Tours Paul Revere House 

When Paul moved in with his exceptionally large family of 16 children (8 of which he had with his first wife and 8 with his second), the space was said to be so limited that even the British stayed away. British troops, of course, had their right to the quarter in the homes of families. The Reveres, however, qualified for an exemption due to their limited living space. Paul did find space enough though to, on occasion, host exhibits for friends at his home. During one of these exhibits in 1771 he showed oil paintings which he had drawn of the Boston Massacre and which were illuminated by candlelight (in diorama-like fashion). It is said this showing was just one of several instances which helped plant the early seeds of the Revolution.

Paul eventually sold this home in 1800 and the home took on a series of different lives afterwards, including: a tenement, bank, grocery store, candy store and cigar factory. The home was slated for demolition in the early 20th century before being acquired by a group which included Revere’s great-grandson—John P. Reynolds Jr. Who transformed it into this historical museum.

The museum officially opened in 1908 and provides spectacular insight into 18th century living. 90% of the structure is, per its original design. There is a nominal fee for touring it & this is the most popular attraction along the Freedom Trail. If you do decide to enter the museum and visit, do not miss out on the 900 pound bell cast by Paul Revere located in the courtyard.

**Special thanks to the Paul Revere House for their insight in preparing this entry.

Walking Tours NYC : Museum Of Arts And Design

Walking Tours NYC - The Museum of Arts and Design moved to this location in 2008. It was begun in 1956 by Aileen Osborn Webb and since then has undergone a series of name changes including the Museum of Contemporary Craft and the American Crafts Museum before settling on its most recent selection. The Museum hosts four floors of exhibits across 54,000 square feet and is open Tuesday through Sunday 11am-6pm and Thursdays 11am-9pm. Admission is $15 for adults and $12 for students and seniors.

Now the Museum of Arts and Design is a nice little museum, but what I really wanted to explore on this site is the history of the buildings which previously and currently reside here. The earliest structure was actually a brownstone with mansard roof hotel called the Pabst Grand Circle Hotel which made its home here from 1874-1960. It was the hotel’s replacement where our interest lies.

Museum Of Arts And Design
Museum Of Arts And Design

In 1964 “The Lollipop Building” was erected in its place—a name given via a scathing review of its architectural styles. This modernist structure was built to house the art collection for Huntington Hartford, the heir to the A&P Supermarkets, who decorated the auditorium in the colors of his supermarkets (red and orange) which they still remain to this day. The building was most recognized for its 12-story white marble façade with round holes perforating its south side. It was designed by Edward Durell Stone, who also was responsible for the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington D.C.

What was interesting about this building was the love-hate relationship the city had with it. Despite its continued mocking in the press, a significant preservation effort was started up when rumors of alterations to the structure began in 2003. The New York City Landmarks Commission, however, refused to provide a public hearing on behalf of the building and in 2008 alterations to the exterior began. The result is the current 22,000 glazed tile structure.
A lot was made about why a hearing never occurred, but to understand the decision you really need go no further than the numbers. The Landmarks Commission reportedly receives approximately 8000 applications a year for review and this number continues to grow every year.

These applications may range from the most minor of modifications such as a door or window to complete renovations or replacements. So, on one hand you have a significant workload which is not equally balanced by their budget, which is said to be the smallest of any agency. So, with that background, it hopefully provides a bit of perspective when you hear about any sort of call to action by local preservationists.

Free Walking Tours NYC : Lincoln Center For The Performing Arts

Free Walking Tours NYC Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts is a 15-acre complex of building home to New York’s Opera, Ballet, Philharmonic Orchestra and much more. In the 1950s and 1960s this area was a seventeen block neighborhood of brick tenement home to many Puerto Rican immigrants and known as San Juan Hill. Their tale became largely famous through the 1957 Broadway hit, West Side Story by Leonard Bernstein. Just four years later when filming began for the Hollywood interpretation of the musical, directors would have to find new locales to replicate San Juan Hill as it had been completely razed for redevelopment.

Lincoln Center For The Performing Arts
Lincoln Center For The Performing Arts
Efforts had already begun in the 1950s to replace the dreary tenements with a new center for culture. The first significant barrier, however, was in obtaining rights to the proposed site. This was accomplished via eminent domain when the city seized the properties as part its urban renewal plans. These plans called for the relocation of the existing 7,000 residents within the neighborhood, a large portion of which never saw these promises come to fruition.

Lincoln Center was officially approved for construction in 1956 and President Eisenhower broke ground for the facility in May 1959. To help fund the $184.5 million project, John D. Rockefeller III actually contributed one-half of the funds from his own pocket.

As to the derivation of the name Lincoln Center, no one is really certain as to where it came from. It is largely believed to be a tribute to Abraham Lincoln but no validation of this exists within city records. The name for the area can actually be traced back to 1906 via records from the New York City Board of Alderman (equivalent to the city council). It is believed by some that this apparent omission may be partly driven by the fact that then New York mayor, George B. McClellan Jr., refused acknowledgement of the former President. McClellan Jr’s father had been a major general in the Union Army during the Civil War who had had numerous disputes with Lincoln. McClellan’s disdain for Lincoln even went so far as to run versus him for the Presidency in 1864.

In regards to the current complex, the Avery Fisher Hall was completed in 1962 and followed by the David H. Koch Theatre in 1964 and then the Metropolitan Opera House. The centerpiece of the plaza consists of a fountain by Philip Johnson and a sculpture titled The Reclining Figure by Henry Moore

Walking Tours NYC : Discovery Of Manhattan

Walking Tours NYC : Discovery Of Manhattan - The first individual known to sail into New York Harbor and set foot on these lands was Giovanni DA Verrazano in 1524. He landed near an area off of Staten Island, where a bridge bearing his name now stands, the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. In his journals, he described his encounters with the Lenape Indians who resided there. “The people are almost like unto the others, and clad with feathers of fowls of diverse colors. They came towards us very cheerfully, making great shouts of admiration, showing us where we might come to land most safely with our boat.”

Unfortunately for Verrazano, a secondary tribe, he met in 1528 whilst exploring an area near the Bahamas was not so friendly. After landing his ship and going ashore to greet the apparently friendly tribesmen here he promptly discovered they were in fact cannibals who murdered and ate him.

Now, while Verrazano may have been the first to sail New York Harbor, a Dutch explorer named Henry Hudson is generally more recognized for his explorations. This may be due to the fact that subsequent to Hudson’s voyages the Dutch actually began to establish settlements within this area. Hudson’s journey into the harbor actually occurred on September 11 on 1609.

Hear Walt Disney's exciting tale and understand how creative philosophies, revolutionary aspirations, his revolutionary tips and amazing accomplishments that produced the theme park to life. Your cast member trip guide’s label was Rae. She was wonderful.

Keys To The Kingdom Tour Review
Keys To The Kingdom Tour Review
Study between the wrinkles on this one. Your trip began on Mainstreet, USA, that has always been my personal favorite place Walt Disney World in all. I could stay there all day only people watching, listening to the music and taking in all of the special orders. When our guide explained the windows on Mainstreet with all the current publishing on them each possess a story in it, what I found many interesting about this part of the excursion is. Every person’s name that's stated on these windows was once a buddy of Walt’s that served him on his quest to produce the Disney empire that people know and appreciate today.

The trip also contains stops at backstage facilities as well as a number of favorite attractions such as Pirates of the Caribbean the Jungle Cruise As Well As The Haunted Mansion. One remarkable highlight is just a getaway in to the assistance channels as,” Utilidors” known. This is one urban legend that's completed, and nearly incredibly, genuine: the visitor accessible regions of the Magic Kingdom theme park are in fact on the second floor of the huge construction. The primary floor, named the Utilidors, enables deliveries, Cast Members and also tries to become unintentionally transferred below the guests’ feet as they delay in line for his or her preferred attraction. If the time was over, I found that I had a brand new-found understanding and love for Walt and all he has developed. He's in as well as certainly a pro my guide, an American idol. Thus, for that, I-say,”thank for developing a masterpiece that allows families to make memories that last a very long time, you” Wally. I really hope you are smiling and are looking down

Among the destinations we got to ride was the Jungle Cruise. We didn’t get the usual slogan from a skipper, although it had been a complete ride. Our tour guide conducted a behindthescenes look at the fascination, also helping to describe several attractions' annals at the resort. It had been exciting and special, particularly for anyone who has been to the trip many times both in California and Florida. I loved the look at how SCSE matches within a journey, and got a kick-out of a number of the behindthescenes issues were completed.

Haunted Mansion was another fascination we could actually ride through the visit. These aren’t both guarantees, but in many cases are done with this unique excursion. Before we got in. One bit that is seen outside is a Mr. Toad sculpture while in the pet cemetery as homage towards the former journey in Fantasyland, there was reference to behindthescenes trivia. The way in which we got to load was an event too. It was through a cast member area that's not often consumed by visitors (I say often because it is completed for the visit). It was fun to own this little accessibility, and worth the ride-on simply for it

Totally, I would suggest this excursion. It will take about 5 hours to perform. A significant number is of walking ensure that you wear shoes. Some of my buddies commented before I got the trip because they were worried it would ruin the miracle, that they would never do the expedition. I didn’t discuss their issues and that I definitely don’t believe today. I think it includes a history that is wonderful and enables you to enjoy all the work that you just don’t when you are onstage noticing. As the visit was closing, I presently was researching what backstage visit to accomplish next. What you think? Could you wish to accomplish Recommendations towards Keys To The Kingdom Tour?

Iwalked New York City’s 140 Broadway (Marine Midland Building)

The address at 140 Broadway is also referred to on occasion as the Marine Midland Bank Building or the HSBC Building. It was constructed in 1967 based upon the designs of Skidmore Owings and Merrill for its then primary tenant who acquired the naming rights, the Marine Midland Bank. At the time, Marine Midland occupied the first 20 floors of the 51-story (688 foot tall) trapezoidal-shaped structure. In 1987, Marine Midland was fully acquired by HSBC and the building took on a new secondary name.

Marine Midland Building

140 Broadway is perhaps best known for its plaza art of a giant red steel cube standing on one corner. This public piece is by Japanese American artist Isamu Noguchi.

This address also made headlines on August 20, 1969 when it was the site of a bombing attack said to be a statement versus America’s involvement in the Vietnam War. The attack occurred at approximately 10:30 in the evening. The attacker, Sam Melville, planted twenty-five sticks of dynamite near the elevator on the eighth floor. Twenty people were injured in total as part of the incident. Melville, for his crime, was sentenced to eighteen years in Attica Prison where he would later be shot and killed as part of the riot which occurred there in September of 1971.

Iwalked New York City’s Beacon Theatre

New York City’s Beacon Theatre - Located at 2124 Broadway is a theater created as a smaller version of the former Roxy Theater—the Beacon Theatre. Its similarities derive largely from the fact that the designer for both theaters was the same, Chicago architect Walter Ahlschlager. This building was originally slated to open in 1929 as the Roxy Midway Theater, however, it never happened. The theater was sold before it even opened and was unveiled as Warner’s Beacon Theatre to show Warner Brothers films.

Beacon Theatre
Beacon Theatre
Today the theater is more commonly used for concerts and also hosted the 2011 Tony Awards. Popular acts which have performed at the 2,600 seat theater have included Michael Jackson, Jerry Garcia, Queen, Aerosmith, Radiohead, the Rolling Stones (who performed for Bill Clinton’s 50th birthday party in 2006) and the Allman Brothers, who have performed here every year since 1989. Every spring the Allman Brothers conduct a series of sold out shows promoted as “The Beacon Run” here. To-date they have performed close to two hundred shows at the Beacon.

Iwalked New York City’s Christopher Park – General Philip HenrySheridan Statue

Located in the back end of Christopher Park is a larger-than-life bronze tribute to General Philip Henry Sheridan. Sheridan was a Union general in the Civil War who best known for his defeat of Confederate forces in the Shenandoah Valley in 1864. After the victory he employed a new war technique later referred to as “The Burning” whereby he literally torched the surrounding land thereby rendering it worthless to the enemy.

General Philip HenrySheridan Statue
General Philip HenrySheridan Statue
The Sheridan statue is by artist Joseph Pollia and was unveiled on October 19, 1936 (the 72nd anniversary of his victory at Shenandoah). It features Sheridan in his army attire with a holstered sword along his left side. Below the statue is a quote by Ulysses S. Grant commending Sheridan by saying, “He belongs to the first rank of soldiers, not only for our country, but of the world.”

Sheridan’s reputation has been questioned in more recent years based upon his stance versus American Indians. During a period of 1868-1869 he employed some of his famed Civil War tactics versus the Indian population in attempting to drive them out of the Great Plains region. His troops were known to kill when resistance persisted and he was once even reportedly quoted as saying, “The only good Indian is a dead Indian.” Historians agree the remark may have been mistakenly attributed to Sheridan but his tactics of warfare versus the American Indian still have left a sour taste in some people’s mouths.
