Did jay silverheels live in Brooklyn ny?

Yep...from the 1950's till the 1970's he lived next to Washington Cemetary in a small house just off Bay Parkway near East 4th street in the Bensonhurst/Gravesend section of Brooklyn. His late-50's Cadillac was often parked in his driveway and proud symbols of his Native American pride were displayed in his house window. Native Americans were celebrities in New York and had often been treated well there compared to the treatment received in other areas of the country

What is the history of PS 106 in Brooklyn?

I lived at 248 Cornelia St. right across from the school and I know that when my father went to it as a kid it was supossed to be torndown and my father would have been 82 this past month. I remember that when the weather was cold we had recess in the dungeon like basement and when it was warm we went out to the school yard. I think that the building was made of red sandstone. Every Tuesday and Thursday were assembly days and we had to wear a white top, red scarf or tie and navy pants or skirts. If you or Melissa want to know more let me know.

Answer

I attended P.S. 106 from the 4th grade through the sixth grade. However, in the 1947-48 school year my class did the 5th and 6th grade in one year which resulted in my starting the 7th grade at age 11.

I remember the courtyard but most of all, I remember the attic. Our teacher, Miss Helen Rutledge would take us up there on rainy or snowy days and we would have "music appreciation".

The walls were lined with pictures of musical instruments and in one corner of the room was a large victrola (that's right - victrola). Miss Rutledge would play various pieces of classical music and ask us to listen and identify what instruments were being played. Some of the songs I remember are Barcarole, Humoresque (by Dvorak), Swan Lake, Night on Bald Mountain, Moonlight Sonata - and more. I owe my appreciation of classical music to that lady and to that experience since I had never heard classical music at home.

I also remember many of my classmates names - Rosemary Schultz (my first girlfriend), Benedict Martino, Duane Bosling, Etta Koeing, Frances McGowan. Hey, as I look back on it, it was one of the best and most fruitful learning periods of my life.

Which train do you take to 1260-1278 60th Street Brooklyn NY 11219 coming from Downtown Brooklyn?

You can take the 4 or 5 (of the 4-5-6, the dark green line) from Borough Hall-Court Street (on Joralemon Street, between Court Street and Adams Street/Boerum Place) to Atlantic Avenue-Pacific Street (which are two connected stations).

Transfer at Atlantic Avenue-Pacific Street to the Downtown (Brooklyn-bound) N train (of the N-R-Q-W, the yellow line) or the Downtown D train (of the B-D-F-M, the orange line).

Take the Downtown N or D to New Utrecht Avenue-62nd Street (on the N), or 62nd Street-New Utrecht Avenue on the D (they are also two connected stations).

The D makes night service stops at DeKalb Avenue (on Flatbush Avenue between Fleet Street and DeKalb Avenue) and the N makes night service stops at both DeKalb Avenue and Court Street-Borough Hall (also two connected stations). So if you are traveling at night (which I think means from 10 PM to 5 or 5:30 AM), you can just take the D or N the whole way there.

Walking directions are as follows: you will get off the subway on New Utrecht Avenue. Walk two blocks north on New Utrecht Avenue until you get to 60th Street. Turn left and walk west on 60th Street. Your destination is on the next block, between 13th and 12th Avenues.

How do you get to 225 Cadman Plaza Brooklyn NY 11201 from 25th Avenue in Brooklyn?

The D (of the B-D-F-M, the orange line) is the only train that stops at (or near) 25th Avenue, but there are several trains you can transfer to that will drop you off near the courthouses. To simplify things, however, I will just give you the directions that have the shortest walking distance from the station.

Take the Manhattan-bound D from 25th Avenue (at 86th Street) to Atlantic Avenue-Pacific Street.

The Atlantic Avenue-Pacific Street station is connected to the Atlantic Avenue station. Transfer to Atlantic Avenue, and take the Manhattan-bound 2 or 3 trains (of the 1-2-3, the red line) from Atlantic Avenue to Clark Street.

There is a 225 Cadman Plaza West and a 225 Cadman Plaza East. If you're going to US District Court East, then you're going to Cadman Plaza East, but just in case, I will provide walking directions for both.

The 2 or 3 to Clark Street will drop you off at the corner of Clark and Henry Streets. Walk two blocks east on Clark Street to Cadman Plaza West. Then either walk north on Cadman Plaza West to 225, or walk straight east through the park to Cadman Plaza East. The address 225 Cadman Plaza East is pretty much exactly where Clark Street is.

What is the value of a baseball signed by the Brooklyn Dodgers?

There are many factors in determining the value of a Brooklyn Dodgers Team signed baseball. Condition, and having the signatures authenticated are important. But before putting a value on the baseball you have to figure out what year the Brooklyn Dodger team is from. The Brooklyn Robins (1914-1931) became the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1932, and then moved to Los Angeles in 1958. Below (Related Links) is a price guide with links to full team rosters to help you figure out what year the baseball is from. Searching for the players that played the least amount of time for the team will help you figure it out quicker. This price guide is based on average prices of recently closed auctions. Prices may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the baseball. Prices may also vary based on the amount of signatures, and key signatures acquired. The more complete the baseball with key signatures the more valuable.

Who invented the incubator for premature babies?

America's first hospitals for premature infants were built at the turn of the 20th century at fairs, amusement parks and expositions. These hospitals represented both a medical and a social frontier. They had a great impact on the medical profession because they demonstrated the success of caring for premature infants using incubators. One of the first modern incubator systems was invented by Alexandre Lion of France. The Lion incubators which were later used in the first American incubator hospitals, were invented in 1891. These incubators were heated by a cylindrical water boiler that was mounted on the outside wall of the incubator. This type of incubator system was unique, because the incubators had their own ventilation system. Inspired by Lion's success and fascinated by the popularity of the exhibits, Martin Couney set up an incubator exhibit at an exposition in Berlin. Couney was German, and a student of the noted pediatrician Pierre Budin. Budin had studied under Stephane Tarnier, who had invented the first warm air incubator. Couney set up his first American incubator hospital at the Trans-Mississippi Exposition in 1898 in Omaha, Nebraska.

What bridges connect to Brooklyn?

The Brooklyn, Manhattan and Williamsburg Bridges. All three connect Brooklyn to Manhattan. You can remember them, and the order they are in from south to north, very easily, as the acronym formed by their names is the name of a popular kind of car, the BMW: Brooklyn, Manhattan, Williamsburg.

The answer above is correct but you can also access Brooklyn from the Triboro( RFK) and Queensboro bridges from Manhattan through Queens. From the Bronx the Whitestone and Throgs Neck bridges by going through Queens.

If you wanted to nit pick then add the Rikers Island Bridge from the Bronx and again through Queens.

Where is Brooklyn?

Brooklyn (named after the Dutch town Breukelen) is one of the five boroughs of New York City, located at the western end of Long Island. An independent city until its consolidation with New York in 1898, Brooklyn is New York City's most populous borough, with 2.5 million residents,[1] and second largest in area.

If the borough were a separate city, it would be the fourth-largest city in the United States. Since 1896, Brooklyn has had the same boundaries as Kings County, which is now the most populous county in New York State, and the second most densely populated county in the United States, after New York County (Manhattan).[2][3]

Though a part of New York City, Brooklyn maintains a distinct culture, independent art scene, and unique architectural heritage. Many Brooklyn neighborhoods are ethnic enclaves where particular ethnic groups and cultures predominate.

How far is the Vancouver's airport from the cruise ship docks?

In regular traffic, it takes about 45 minutes to get from Vancouver's airport, which is located in Richmond, to the cruise ship terminals that are located in downtown Vancouver. Morning rush hour is heavy from 7am - 10am and afternoon rush hour is from 3pm - 7pm, so give yourself extra time during these periods. Also keep in mind that there are two cruise ship terminals: Canada Place and Ballantyne Pier - they are about a 5 minute drive apart. With the introduction of the Canada Line rapid transit system in 2009, the train from the airport to Waterfront Station (2 blocks from Canada Place) takes less than 30 minutes.

How do you get from Grand Central to Brooklyn by subway?

That depends on where in Brooklyn you're going (see the Related Link below for a complete New York City subway map).

The subway lines that run between Manhattan and Brooklyn are the 4 and 5 (of the 4-5-6, the dark green line), the A and C (of the A-C-E, the blue line), the B, D and F (of the B-D-F-M, the orange line), the N, R and Q (of the N-R-Q-W, the yellow line), the 2 and 3 (of the 1-2-3, the red line) and the L train (the grey line).

The 4 and 5

The 4-5-6 line stops at 42nd Street-Grand Central.

The A or C

To get to the A or C, take the S shuttletrain (color grey) west across 42nd Street, from Grand Central (East 42nd) to Times Square (West 42nd). Then walk through the tunnel that connects the 42nd Street-Times Square Station to the 42nd Street-Port Authority Bus Terminal Station. At the 42nd Street-Port Authority Station, get the Downtown A or C.

The B, D or F

Take the Downtown 6 train to Bleeker Street. On the Downtown 6 only (not the Uptown 6) you can transfer from the Bleeker Street Station to the Broadway-Lafayette Station.

Get the Downtown B, D or F trains at the Broadway-Lafayette Station.

The N, R or Q

Take the S shuttle train (color grey) west across 42nd Street, from Grand Central (East 42nd) to Times Square (West 42nd). At the Times Square Station, transfer to the Downtown N, R or Q trains.

The 2 and 3

Take the S shuttle train (color grey) west across 42nd Street, from Grand Central (East 42nd) to Times Square (West 42nd). Get the Downtown 2 or 3 at the 42nd Street-Times Square Station.

The L train

Take the Downtown 4-5-6 to 14th Street-Union Square. It's preferable to take the 4 or 5, not the 6, as the 4 and 5 are express trains and it's only one stop from Grand Central to 14th Street. It's four stops on the 6local train.

Get the Brooklyn-bound L train at 14th Street-Union Square.
