Iwalked Boston Common Event Today – Park Street Subway

Iwalked Boston Common Event Today – Park Street Subway - While the reminders of our nation’s first subway may be gentle, the launching of the first subway car on September 1, 1897 opened a whole new avenue of transportation for Americans (pun intended). The first subway line ran from this location up to nearby Boylston Station just .19 miles (about 1000 feet) away. If you can imagine, there were actually four rail stops along this short path of which I can just hear the commuter cries if that were still in place today.

Boston Common Event Today – Park Street Subway
Park Street Subway

Now when our subway system opened its merits were not sold on all individuals. There were numerous skeptics whom feared the underground railway would lead to the buildings in this area collapsing. Fortunately the neigh-sayers were proven wrong and we still have our Park Street T-Station with us today.

The Boston T system, if you are unfamiliar, refers to their subway system. This is similar to how individuals in Chicago refer to their rail system as the ‘L’. Now while it is fun to think that the name of the rail system cleverly references historical events from Boston’s past, unfortunately, the reality is that it just simply stands for the term “Transit.”

There is a historical marker on the back of the subway exit nearest Tremont Street if you wish to view more details as to the station. Also outside of the station is a four-sided kiosk or marker with some additional history on the Boston Common if you wish to view this as well.

Iwalked New York City's Galleria Site of Conor Clapton Tragedy

Iwalked New York City's Galleria Site of Conor Clapton Tragedy - The fifty-seven story Galleria was built in 1973 as the city’s first mixed-use property (i.e.-partly used for commercial and residential purposes). It was originally designed by David Kenneth Specter solely for office use, however, when it became apparent that the market at the time already had a glut of unrented office space, the plans were quickly modified. Today offices occupy the first eight stories with the remainder of the building containing apartments.

Galleria Site of Conor Clapton Tragedy
Galleria Site of Conor Clapton Tragedy

The Galleria is named for its spacious seven-story atrium and has been owned by magician David Copperfield since 1997. Mr. Copperfield still maintains a residency on the building’s upper floors. The unusual looking penthouse atop the Galleria was originally designed for an heir of General Motors, Stewart Mott who had the unit built to his specifications and then just never moved in.

In 1991, the Galleria was the site of a tragedy for legendary guitarist Eric Clapton. It was here that Clapton’s four-year-old son Conor fell to his death from the 53rd floor. After years of attempting to have a child with his former wife Pattie Boyd, Clapton had his first son with an Italian model named Lory Del Santo on August 21, 1986. After his son’s birth, Clapton struggled to come to grips with what it meant to be a father and bond with his child. It was sadly just the night before his son’s tragic death that Clapton began to connect with Conor. They had just returned from a day together on Coney Island when Clapton was quoted as saying, “I now understand what it means to have a child and be a father.”

On March 20, 1991 Conor was playing hide-and-seek with his housekeeper, with both his mother and maid also present in the apartment, when he went to hide in one the bedrooms. He approached a 4’x6’ window that the housekeeper had left open slightly to air out the room she had just finished cleaning. As Conor leaned outward near the window he heartbreakingly leaned too far and fell out atop the roof of the New York Geological and Biographical Society building.

While everyone acknowledges the incident as both a tragedy and gut-wrenching accident, the facts around how this may have happened are even sadder. To begin with, the window in question did have a lock on it; however, it had been broken and never replaced. Furthermore, while New York City law requires that all apartment windows have guards placed on them; a city ruling in 1984 exempted condominiums. Hence, qualifying under this exemption, the Galleria had not been required to install window guards on the building.

The loss of his first son was obviously an incident which scarred Clapton. In an attempted mode of therapy, Clapton has written multiple songs on the subject including “Lonely Stranger” and “My Father’s Eyes.” His song “Circus,” from the 1998 album Pilgrim was written about the last time he saw his son having taken him to Coney Island. And of course, the most recognized song is the 1992 ballad “Tears in Heaven” which won three Grammys.

Iwalked Washington DC's Treasury Building

Iwalked Washington DC's Treasury Building - The Treasury Building is the oldest executive department within the United States federal government and also one of the largest with over 100,000 employees. Despite being housed in one of the biggest governmental buildings in all of Washington, it is said that only about ten percent of its work force can be accommodated here. The Treasury department was formally established by an act of Congress on September 2, 1789 with the general objectives of managing the government’s revenue through such activities as producing currency, collecting taxes and managing all public debt. Just nine days after the department’s creation the first Secretary of the Treasury was sworn in, Alexander Hamilton.

Treasury Building
Treasury Building
The Treasury Building is the third oldest federal building in the city (after the White House and U.S. Capitol) and how it came to be here is one of Washington’s grandest legends. Supposedly President Andrew Jackson was out for a walk with some his aides discussing some issues that required his direct attention. When the topic of the hotly debated locale of the new Treasury Building came up Jackson became angered, slammed down his walking cane and said, “Put it here!” His aides reportedly took his declaration literally and began preparations for construction of the new monstrous home for the Treasury Department. When the cornerstone for the Treasury Building was laid it was said that Jackson added a lock of hair from his granddaughter as an added token of good luck.

Four-story Structure

The Treasury Building is a massive four-story structure that claims to be the largest Greek Revival building in the world. It encompasses two full city blocks and covers five acres of space. The original T-shaped structure (consisting of the central and eastern wings) was designed by architect Robert Mills and constructed over a period from 1836 to 1842. Mill’s design was largely unpopular by Congress who fretted that the mountainous structure would block the White House’s view to the east. Mills snubbed the remarks and continued with his prodigious efforts. For his insubordination, Mills would be released from his post of chief architect for the Treasury Building in 1851.

Prior to his dismissal though, Mills managed to create a magnificent sandstone and granite structure that integrated a series of thirty Ionic columns along its 15th Street facade. Each of these columns stands thirty-six feet tall, weighs thirty tons and was reportedly carved out of a single piece of granite. The costs incurred to construct and install each column were reported to be $5,000 each.

Despite Congress’ apparent concern over the size of the Treasury Building, expansions to the structure would ensue over three more periods. The first addition occurred from 1855-1860 when a wing was added along the south side (giving the building an upside down F-shape). This wing was designed by the architectural team of Ammi B. Young (who also designed Boston’s Custom House) and Alexander H. Bowman. An addition along the west wing shortly followed suit during 1855-1864. This façade that features ten columns along its exterior was designed by Isaiah Rogers. The final wing addition occurred along the north side and was built between 1868 and 1869. This addition, which would enclose the structure, was designed by Alfred B. Mullett who also oversaw construction of the Eisenhower Executive Office Building.


Free guided tours of the Treasury Building are available upon reservations with your local Congressman. One hour tours are typically offered on Saturdays during the times of 9:00, 9:45, 10:30 and 11:45 a.m. All visitors should arrive via the building’s southern entrance and request access via the call button along the gated fence.
The tour includes a number of highlights to captivate your attention. Visitors are provided the opportunity to visit a former office that was used by President Andrew Jackson for a period after Abraham Lincoln’s death in 1865.

You will likely be in awe within the two-story Cash Room that was constructed of eight different varieties of marble. And a visit to the basement will provide some insight as to the current and prior usages of the fifteen vaults that reside here, including one vault from 1864 that is claimed to be burglar proof. The vaults range in size from 160 square feet to 4,500 square feet, and originally housed currency here from 1863-1880. During the Civil War, the vaults were primarily used for food and weapons storage.

Also located within the basement are shooting ranges used for the training of the Secret Service and other law enforcement agencies. Unfortunately visitors are not allowed to partake in this area. Another commonly mistaken element that visitors anticipate viewing is the production of currency. This actually occurs within the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, where visitors are actually provided the opportunity to watch George Washingtons, Abraham Lincolns, or larger bills roll off the presses.

Two significant statues reside along the building’s north and south facades. These portrait figures are dedicated to Alexander Hamilton and Albert Gallatin. Also, if you catch yourself walking along the western façade of the Treasury Building keep your eyes peeled for a reproduction of the Liberty Bell which resides here.

Iwalked New York City's Sony Building

Iwalked New York City's Sony Building - Along our Upper Midtown audio tour, IWalked shares the tale of a number of well recognized skyscrapers along Midtown’s skyline including the Sony Building. This 647 foot tower surprisingly only has thirty-seven stories and was designed by famed architect Philip Johnson in 1984. Johnson, who also designed the nearby Seagram Building, was a surprising selection since technically he was not even amongst the twenty-five firms which originally submitted proposals. It wasn’t until later that Johnson was eventually convinced to provide a delinquent submission which was embraced and selected. Johnson’s most recognizable element on the building is often coined its “Chipendale” top. Chipendale is a reference to Thomas Chipendale, a former London furniture designer noted for topping his works with a central opening.

New York City's Sony Building
New York City's Sony Building
The Sony Building was originally erected to serve as the headquarters of AT&T. AT&T maintained its headquarters here from 1984 to 1992 before leasing out the building to Sony Corporation and relocating to 32 Sixth Avenue. Four years later AT&T decided to completely offload the building and sold it to Sony for the sum of $236 million. Sony continues to maintain their national headquarters within this building today.

Inside of the building Sony maintains an interactive museum known as the Sony Wonder Technology Lab. The hands-on museum provides an opportunity for kids and adults alike to explore technology in creative ways. The Lab is open Tuesday-Saturday 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.and admission is free.

Iwalked New York City's Waldorfastoria

Iwalked New York City's Waldorfastoria - The Waldorf=Astoria is a name synonymous with class, culture, and history within the New York City hotel scene. It is probably for this reason that every president since Franklin Delano Roosevelt has stayed here. Other famous tenants have included Nikola Tesla, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Herbert Hoover, Gregory Peck, Douglas MacArthur, Frank Sinatra, John F. Kennedy, Richard Nixon, Marilyn Monroe, and Paris Hilton. The Waldorf was also the site of the first Tony Awards in April 6, 1947. And in surprising fashion, the New York Dolls played a Halloween show here in 1973 in the hotel’s ballroom.


The origins of the Waldorfastoria

The origins of the Waldorf=Astoria may be traced to March 13, 1893 when millionaire William Waldorf Astor built the thirteen-story Waldorf Hotel on the site of his former mansion near the intersection of Fifth Avenue and East 33rd Street. The building was designed by famed apartment and hotel architect Henry Hardenbergh who was already well known for his work on the Dakota and whom would go on to also design the Plaza Hotel near Central Park. The site for the Waldorf was supposedly chosen as an intentional annoyance to Astor’s aunt, Caroline Astor. Caroline was an elite socialite who threw lavish parties for New York’s cream of the crop that were dubbed “the famous 400” based upon the number that would fit into her ballroom where she often liked to entertain. Knowing the proximity of a hotel adjacent to her residence would cause Caroline angst was fuel enough for William to proceed with development of his hotel. William’s feud with Caroline was reportedly so fierce that it eventually led him to move to England, and sadly he only was able to visit his hotel once in his lifetime.

Four years after completion of the Waldorf, William’s cousin John Jacob Astor IV (who would meet an untimely demise aboard the Titanic in 1912) built an adjoining seventeen-story hotel which he dubbed the Astoria. The Astoria was completed and actually connected to the neighboring Waldorf (via Peacock Alley) on November 1, 1897. The union and equality of these two historic hotels was symbolized within the new name, Waldorf=Astoria (with a double-hyphen in between).

The Waldorf=Astoria maintained its residency at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and East 33rd Street until it was relocated for erection of the world’s largest skyscraper, the Empire State Building. The Waldorf, in turn, constructed a new Art Deco hotel at its current locale along Park Avenue which opened on September 30, 1931. The new building was designed by the firm of Schultze & Weaver (whom also designed the Sherry-Netherland Hotel) to be the largest hotel in the world at the time. The result was a forty-seven foot skyscraper with two six hundred twenty-seven foot towers. Amidst the towers were some 2,200 rooms (although in recent years this number has been reduced to approximately 1,800) and a four-story Grand Ballroom. The hotel has since been modified to include 113 apartments that have their own private entrance along East 50th Street. In 1949, the Waldorf=Astoria was acquired by Conrad Hilton and has been a part of the Hilton brand ever since.

Unique Features Waldorfastoria

Some other unique features of the Waldorf=Astoria if you wish to explore inside and out include a lobby clock that was built for the Chicago World Fair in 1893. This eight-faced clock formerly resided within the original Waldorf Hotel and was brought over during the hotel’s relocation. Perhaps even more convenient is the sculpture situated just atop the hotel’s Park Avenue entrance. This angelic-like sculpture, titled Spirit of Achievement, was the work of Nina Saemundsson. Saemundsson’s work was chosen amongst some four hundred other competitors. Lastly, for a more comprehensive look into the building’s interior, the hotel does offer both self-guided and guided tours. Guided “Landmark Tours”, inclusive with lunch at the trendy Peacock Alley restaurant inside, currently run for $50.

Famous movies which have been filmed in part at the Waldorf=Astoria include the 1945 Ginger Rogers Weekend at the Waldorf, the 1998 Eddie Murphy comedy Coming To America, the 2001 Royal Tenanbaums, the 2002 Jennifer Lopez film Maid In Manhattan (where the hotel is referred to as The Beresford Hotel), and probably most recognized via the 1992 Scent of a Women. In this movie Chris O’Donnell aids a blind Al Pacino on a series of adventures during what Pacino’s character plans as his final days. And while not featured within any of the Muppet movies, who can forget the loveable hecklers Statler and Waldorf who were both named after the former Statler Hotel (now recognized as the Hotel Pennsylvania) and current Waldorf=Astoria Hotel. -iwalkedaudiotours-

Iwalked Trump Towers NYC and Trump International Hotel

Iwalked Trump Towers NYC - Address Of Trump Tower in 725 Fifth Avenue, New York City, NY Trump Towers NYC is a luxury apartment and office building designed by Der Scutt of the architectural firm of Swanke, Hayden, Connell & Partners and which is obviously most noted for its famous owner Donald Trump. The building itself features dark reflective glass with setbacks, and when it was completed in November of 1983 was actually the tallest all-glass tower within the city.

Trump Towers NYC
Trump Towers NYC
Although the building is actually fifty-nine stories tall, the lower twenty-six of which encompass offices, it is often promoted as being sixty-eight floors (apparently a not uncommon gimmick used in the marketing residential towers). To build the Trump Tower to this height, the Donald had to actually buy the air rights of neighboring Tiffany & Co. Also, shortly after the building’s completion a slight problem was noted with the design where tenants of the upper floors could actually see into each other’s apartments before the problem was rectified.

How Tall Is Trump Tower NYC ?

Trump Tower is a 58-story, 664-foot-high (202 m) mixed-use skyscraper

Situated amongst the top floors of the Trump Tower is the suite belonging to the building’s owner, Mr. Donald Trump himself. Other noted celebrities who have called the Trump Tower home include Bruce Willis, Johnny Carson, Beyonce, Dick Clark and Steven Spielberg. The building is also home to the annual winner of Miss Universe, Miss Teen USA and Miss USA as part of the prize package awarded by the current owner of these pageants, Mr. Trump.

The Trump Tower has also been featured in multiple movies and television series. Of course, this is the site of the infamous board room where contestants are weekly fired on the television series The Apprentice. Exteriors of the building have also been sighted in some blockbusters such as the 1997 Keanu Reeves and Al Pacino film, The Devil’s Advocate, and in the 2002 version of Spiderman.

The ground floor of the Trump Tower is open to the public and you are welcome to visit its extravagant interior. Inside you will find a six-story atrium that is decorated in a Breccia Pernice marble from Italy which was supposedly handpicked by Ivana Trump herself. In the back of the atrium is also a waterfall which cascades gracefully down the marble walls. And perhaps most impressive within the interior is that you will find some of the cleanest public restrooms within the city of New York.
