I went on a trip to NYC and visited so many wonderful and historic places. Started out my trip with a visit the TWA Flight Center, (now known as the TWA Hotel.) Since 1962! I visited the site of the World's Fair and went back in time at Coney Island. One of my favorite places was the New York Transit Museum! And of course, I checked out lots of vintage signs and historic buildings. Also!!! The Wooden Escalators at Macy's, nearly 100 years old! Outside of the city, I went to see the abandoned Catskills Resorts, it was unreal! Use code "RADIO" for 15% off merchmotel.com

“You might want to get a snorkel”—In a special episode of FAQ NYC, Samantha Maldonado and Kendra Pierre-Louis look at the damage the “superstorm” caused 10 years ago in Coney Island and around the city, and the construction that's followed.
The new Showtime series Let the Right One In expands on the ideas introduced in the now-classic 2008 Swedish horror movie and the American remake. A man, Mark Kane (Demián Bichir) and his tween daughter, Ellie (Madison Taylor Baez) move in to a New York City apartment, where she befriends the lonely, bullied boy down the hall. But she has a huge secret that her father helps her keep- she is a child vampire who must survive on blood and can't go outside in the daytime. The series Let The Right One In explores the relationships and conflicts within families, the horror of vampires, and brings in new characters, crimes and mysteries to add layers to the story. Cinematographer Eric Branco had seen the original Let The Right One In, shot by legendary DP Hoyte van Hoytema, as well as the American version, Let Me In, lensed by none other than Greig Fraser, and it remains one of Eric's favorite movies. He was thrilled to have the opportunity to bring his own look and feel to the story and make it his own. Eric focused on the idea that for the young vampire girl, the indoors is safe and the outdoors is not, so the home features very warm light with lots of yellows, while outside is a shadowy, cool blue and green. He also played with the natural contrast of light between night and day. At night, it was important to play up the danger and horror elements with action taking place in shadows and tunnels, with yellow streetlights selectively showing bits and pieces, building suspense. Let The Right One In is much wider in scope than the movies, featuring many other storylines and locations, which created its own challenges. Eric and the crew had to work within the time constraints for the child actors, especially at night. Planning, blocking and rehearsal became an essential part of some shoot days. When they were shooting the pilot, they had to wait until dark, during the summer solstice- the longest day of the year. That left them with about 2 ½ hours to shoot with the lead actress, Madison Taylor Baez. The most challenging day for Eric was when they did a night shoot at Coney Island with very limited time on the Wonder Wheel with the actors. He and the camera department planned extensively and strategically placed cameras all over to cover all of the action, after several scouts and extensive rehearsals before dark. Eric says that when you have to work with that many cameras and with so much riding on timing and coordination, it becomes more like a team sport and it feels amazing to pull it all off. Eric also likes to have an open, trusting relationship with the actors and let them have more freedom of movement within the frame to explore their characters and enhance their performances. Eric thinks the trust is built on the DP's end, especially when you're shooting something in an unconventional way like on Let The Right One In. Let The Right One In is currently on Showtime. https://www.sho.com/let-the-right-one-in Find Eric Branco- Instagram: @ericbranco Find out even more about this episode, with extensive show notes and links: http://camnoir.com/ep189/ Hear Eric's previous interview on The Cinepod: https://www.camnoir.com/ep95/ Sponsored by ARRI: https://www.arri.com/en Sponsored by Hot Rod Cameras: www.hotrodcameras.com The Cinematography Podcast website: www.camnoir.com YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/TheCinematographyPodcast Facebook: @cinepod Instagram: @thecinepod Twitter: @ShortEndz

This novel includes the history of baby incubators and how the world came to know about them and accept them because, in part, of their display at the sideshow at Coney Island. Truly a wonderful read.Miracle at the Sideshow by Amy SorrellsA deadly fire. A sensational sideshow. And a baby fighting for its life.Eighteen-year-old Sophie Rosenfeld dreams of a resplendent life in America after escaping the pogroms in Eastern Europe, only to lose her family in the horrific Triangle Shirtwaist Fire. Besides Sophie, the lone survivor is her niece, Mercy, a premature baby the city hospital calls a “weakling” and refuses to save. When it is rumored Mercy's only hope lies in the dark and dangerous Coney Island freak shows, free-spirited but despairing Sophie takes the chance. Will life in the spotlights lead her to the life and love she's always imagined, or will another devastating fire force her to return to the ashes of tenement life forever?OverviewNew York City at the turn of the twentieth century is as captivating as it is macabre and as magnificent as it is barbaric, as young Sophie Rosenfeld is about to learn. She yearns for life beyond the dreary tenements, but losing all her family except for her fragile niece, Mercy, in the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist fire has left her with little opportunity. Sophie has to save Mercy's life, but to do so she must follow a mysterious man to the only place in the world that saves premature babies: Dr. Martin Couney and his Coney Island side show.Even as society threatens to shut down Dr. Couney's life-saving work for premature babies, Sophie joins him in fighting for their lives. Amidst the glittering menagerie of lights, astonishing sights, and her new friends, including the handsome acrobat Nicholas, Sophie begins to find hope.From the lavish, dangerous shores of Coney Island, to the harsh but at times tender tenement life, Sophie's heart is split wide open by a roller coaster of unrelenting tragedies, and she finds herself doubting the faith that has always buoyed her. Will Nicholas and her new friends be just the salve Sophie needs to help assuage her grief? Or will she be forced to return to a life that stifled her?Against a backdrop of romance and unexpected escapades, Miracle at the Sideshow brings to life two back-to-back true stories of fire and injustice that shocked the nation into improving worker safety, and which led to techniques still used in neonatal intensive care units today to save the lives of premature babies.Get your copy of Miracle at the Sideshow.Amy is an award-winning author of stories highly acclaimed by the likes of USA Today, Library Journal, and a five star review by Publisher's Weekly. Her stories are full of hope and set in America's heartland. She lives in central Indiana with her husband.Visit Amy Sorrells's website.

The High A Brooklyn Cyclones play against the iconic backdrop of Coney Island. Visitors to the area can catch a game after a visit to America's most famous boardwalk, where they can grab a hot dog and ride the tooth-rattling roller coaster, which has been around for almost a century. On the episode, noted designer Todd Radom talks about one of his favorite creations, Cyclones broadcaster Keith Raad stops by to discuss the team's role in contemporary Brooklyn, and Coaster101 contributor Andrew Stilwell expounds on the parallels between roller coaster enthusiasts and minor league baseball fans.

A new collection of pieces on literature and life by the author of Am I Alone Here?, a finalist for the NBCC Award for Criticism. Stationed in the South Pacific during World War II, Seymour Orner wrote a letter every day to his wife, Lorraine. She seldom responded, leading him to plead in 1945, “Another day and still no word from you.” Seventy years later, Peter Orner writes in response to his grandfather's plea: “Maybe we read because we seek that word from someone, from anyone.” From the acclaimed fiction writer about whom Dwight Garner of The New York Times wrote, “You know from the second you pick him up that he's the real deal,” comes Still No Word from You, a unique chain of essays and intimate stories that meld the lived life and the reading life. For Orner, there is no separation. Covering such well-known writers as Lorraine Hansberry, Primo Levi, and Marilynne Robinson, as well as other greats like Maeve Brennan and James Alan McPherson, Orner's highly personal take on literature alternates with his own true stories of loss and love, hope and despair. In his mother's copy of A Coney Island of the Mind, he's stopped short by a single word in the margin, “YES!”—which leads him to conjure his mother at twenty-three. He stops reading Penelope Fitzgerald's The Beginning of Spring three quarters of the way through because he knows that finishing the novel will leave him bereft. Orner's solution is to start again from the beginning to slow the inevitable heartache. Still No Word from You is a book for anyone for whom reading is as essential as breathing.

Season Two's theme is “Growing Up in Coney Island” through the decades, from the 1930s to the 21st century. In Episode Eight, the final episode of this season, we're sharing the stories of narrators who grew up in Coney Island or came here from nearby neighborhoods, in the first decade of the 2000s.The new millennium began with the opening of a thirty million dollar ballpark for a Mets farm team on the site of Steeplechase Park. A contest was held to name the new team and the Brooklyn Cyclones was the winning name. Whenever the Cyclones won a home game, Astroland's Cyclone roller coaster enjoyed a surge of business.Soon after Mayor Michael Bloomberg took office in 2002, he set his sights on Coney Island. He envisioned world-class attractions and hotels surrounded by high-rise residential development on vacant amusement land. A year later, the city formed the Coney Island Development Corporation to devise what was called “the Coney Island Strategic Plan.” The objective was to make Coney Island into a year-round recreational oceanfront destination by rezoning it. The ensuing zoning battle kept Coney in the headlines for the next six years, as speculators bought and sold land, and preservationists and stakeholders offered alternative visions for the future of the “People's Playground.”The oral histories in Episode Seven are with Ahmed Hussain, Abby Jordan, Bonnie Kong, Candi Rafael, and Eric Sanchez. The interviews were conducted by Kaara Baptiste, Allison Corbett, Amanda Deutch, Samira Tazari, and Lauren Vespoli between 2015 and 2022. This episode was produced by Charles Denson, Ali Lemer and Tricia Vita. Music by Blue Dot Sessions.©2022 The Coney Island History Project. All Rights Reserved.

Phil Rosenthal is the creator, co-producer and writer of Everybody Loves Raymond (yo, that show got 69 Emmy nominations!) but now his passion is introducing Americans to fantastic foreign food destinations as the host of his Netflix show, Somebody Feed Phil (and a new book coming out October 18th!). Phil enthusiastically eats al pastor in Mexico City and pastéis de nata in Lisbon, but his last meal would be a collage of classic American childhood favorites, including the humble hot dog. We head to Nathan's Famous Hot Dogs in Coney Island, home of the annual 4th of July Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest, to learn the history of both. Next stop: Copenhagen, where hot dog carts have been a street food staple since 1920. Host Rachel Belle consults with Danish food and wine journalist Rasmus Palsgard about traditional Copenhagen hot dog toppings and is surprised to learn what drink is commonly paired with a street dog.

Peter Cunningham tells stories with his photos. He pairs images and so abstract photos are in relationship with each other and we wonder what's about to happen. He was an assistant to the great Henry Cartier Bresson in 1975 when Bresson was making a photo documentary about New Jersey. He went onto shoot stars like Madonna and Springsteen and Broadway actors. As his career unfolded he became more interested in watching how light illuminates images so that they become abstracted. He became a Zen follower and his photography was informed by new ways of seeing.

Recorded on the campus of Syracuse University in October 2022, former play-by-play announcer Dave Cohen joined the show. “Coney Island Dave” (a nickname given to him by his dear friend Bob Costas) was the TV voice of the New York Yankees from 1995-1996. He was also the TV voice of the then-Washington Bullets and the original host of Mets Extra. Dave was an original play-by-play announcer for ESPN in 1979. He called Syracuse Football, Basketball, and Lacrosse during the 1980s for a cable outlet called Super Sports. In this episode, Cohen discusses how his career was a combination of being in the right place at the right time. He won an Emmy award for his commentary during Dwight Gooden's 1996 no-hitter. He discussed the strategy of giving Syracuse broadcasts to new cable networks across the country on tape delay and the impact that had on the athletic programs during the 1980s.

Alfredo Speranza"Rattatata"Nutrimenti Edizionihttps://www.nutrimenti.net/È in bella vista sotto i nostri occhi che talvolta si nascondono certe verità degli esseri umani. C'è quest'ansa del Tevere, per dire: Porto Giordano. Minuscolo lembo di terra dove si spalanca una Roma eccentrica, tana e territorio di una tribù di ratti su cui veglia, guida e madre, la Ratta. Decine, centinaia di esemplari che prosperano colonizzando, finchè l'urto di inondazioni e disastri li costringe a migrare. A sottrarsi da agguati di terra e di cielo. A difendersi dagli uomini.Non tutti gli uomini, però, non tutte le donne. A Porto Giordano c'è infatti una coppia di anziane e memorabili sorelle, Lidia e Faustina, che sperimentano per l'umanità sintonie, convivenze, su cui i più non posano lo sguardo. E c'è uno Scrittore che ha la voglia e lo spirito di scoprire, osservare, conoscere, appartenere a quell'umanità, diventare compilatore di storie migranti che dicono migrazioni: dall'Africa a Coney Island, dal bar Pedrelli ritrovo di intellettuali e intellettualini a Villa Solesia, clinica per i disturbi della memoria, fino al Chilometro, un segmento pasoliniano di stradone che non viene e non va da nessuna parte fiancheggiando cento casette.Quella di Alfredo Speranza è un'architettura narrativa che intreccia sapientemente passato e presente, geografia e storia: forse perché la scrittura stessa è migrazione, è ascoltare storie che arrivano e vanno, è scrivere storie che andranno e torneranno.In conclusione, Rattatata è un romanzo pieno di pietà e di umorismo, che si fa leggere avidamente, godendo ‘della libertà che un autore, migrante a bordo delle proprie parole, deve prendersi, e del coraggio che deve darsi per scrivere'. Alfredo Speranza si è preso l'una e l'altra, e ci ha incantato”. Della Valle, L'Indice dei libri del meseAlfredo Speranza è nato a Roma nel 1950. Laureato in Ingegneria elettronica, manager e poi imprenditore nel settore info-telematica. Con Rattatata, che è il suo romanzo d'esordio, è stato finalista e menzione speciale al Premio Calvino 2021.IL POSTO DELLE PAROLEAscoltare fa Pensarehttps://ilpostodelleparole.it/

By October of 1947, nearly eleven million babies had been born in the U.S. since the end of World War II. Young parents were staying home with their children. Movie attendance bombed. The 1947-48 season had the largest radio audience in history. Homes with radios jumped 6%, car radios 29%. NBC, CBS, ABC, and Mutual added nearly one-hundred fifty affiliates. Ninety-seven percent of the nation's AM stations were now linked to one of the big four. Network revenue topped $200 Million. World War two had created fundamental changes in society. While men of all races and creeds were overseas spilling the same colored blood, women mobilized and took charge of the workforce. When veterans were discharged, they returned home with different ideals, and what we'd now call PTSD. As new cars, roads, and homes brought young families to the suburbs, racial descrimination came to the forefront in the face of the G.I. Bill, where a much higher percentage of white Americans were having their applications accepted. On October 29th, the national civil rights committee delivered a report to the White House. The document made thirty-five specific recommendations, including asking the President to create a permanent Federal commission on civil rights. President Truman said that he'd study the report with great care and recommend that all citizens do the same thing. Americans were organizing. In the year after VJ Day, more than five million struck for better wages and benefits. This hurt key sectors of the economy and stifled production. Consumer goods in high-demand were slow to appear on shelves and in showrooms, frustrating Americans who desperately wanted to purchase items forsaken during the war. It caused the largest inflation rise in the country's modern history, and the Taft-Hartley Act, limiting the power of Labor Unions. President Truman was seemingly at odds with Congress over every domestic policy and his approval rating sank to 32%. Reelection the following year seemed unlikely. The U.S. War Debt topped two-hundred-forty billion dollars. Emerging as one of the world's leaders, America was expected to have the largest hand in rebuilding Europe. News outlets reported that, to create European stability, Americans should resume sacrifices they made during the war. Not agreeing to do so could result in political enemies taking over the continent. That October, as the major networks were enjoying the largest ratings in radio history, one network, The Mutual Broadcasting System, was still struggling to grab audiences. Airing out of WOR in New York, The Shadow was the network's most-listened to program. While it pulled a rating of thirteen — strong for a show airing on Sundays at 5PM easten — it was nowhere near radio's top fifty. Mutual's top stations — WOR in New York, WGN in Chicago, and Don Lee's KHJ in Los Angeles — all boasted powerful signals and had equal shares in the network. And, while Mutual reached four-hundred affiliates in 1947 and would add another hundred over the next year, many of these were small stations in rural areas. This limited their advertiser appeal. Mutual was run as a cooperative, rather than a corporation. As families left cities and farms for the suburbs, the network's shared programming structure left it at a distinct disadvantage against NBC, CBS, and ABC. Those three networks would use their soaring revenue to move into TV. Although some Mutual affiliates developed television programming, the full network was never able to launch into TV. That's not to say MBS didn't have quality programming. Just the opposite, and with Halloween around the corner, tonight we'll delve into Mutual's horror, mystery, and suspense shows of the late 1940s.
Lucky number 13 and the ladies are back with another interesting topic. Is having children keeping us from accumulating wealth? The ladies discuss the pros and cons of being childless and single. Women who stay single and don't have kids are getting richer. Forgoing marriage and parenthood has a bigger payoff for American women than men, according to new research. Does the workplace and society unjustly tax the working/professional woman for deciding to have children? And is there a difference between black/brown women with children, and their white counterparts, as far as wealth accumulation is concerned? But before they dive into their topic, Liz discusses the conviction and sentencing of Lesandro Junior Guzman Feliz's murderers and the tragic news of Erin Merdy, a mother charged with murdering for drowning her 3 children in Coney Island. What compels a person to commit murder and are our health care professionals doing enough to ensure the mental health of parents? Is it the communities responsibilities to speak up and report concerning behavior?

This episode discusses several cases of infanticide. Listener discretion is advised. On this special episode of HNTRASK, Michelle circles back to one of the most important themes of this podcast, how can we bolster prenatal and postpartum support on an individual and societal level, so that in turn, parents can better support their children? Dr. Ward and her esteemed guest Jessica Jackley discuss the overlooked and underdiagnosed mental illness of postpartum psychopathy. Three months after giving birth, in the wake of troubling psychological symptoms, Erin Merdy drowned her three children on Coney Island. When we read stories like this, we often wonder, How could a mother do this to her children? It is unfathomable. After hearing the story of Erin Merdy, Michelle, PhD in Psychology and Clinical Neurology expert, was prompted to discuss the underpinnings of murders like this, and bring to light an underrecognized mental disorder that was once erased from DSM. If you or someone you know needs postpartum support - Michelle recommends the organizations below. Both are LGBTQ affirmative organizations.

Carl Paul came to America through Ellis Island in New York from a country few in Flint, Michigan, know much about. North Macedonia, officially the Republic of North Macedonia, is a country in Southeast Europe. In 1991, the tiny country became recognized as one of the successor states of Yugoslavia. Today, the Slavic country is a member of NATO.Carl and many of his fellow Macedonian immigrants eventually found their way to Flint. They came from a small mountain village in southern Macedonia near the border with Greece. The immigrants of Bouf, Macedonia, have contributed mightily to the Flint economy, culture, and business leadership.Once in Flint, Michigan, Carl Paul and his partner, Angelo Nikoloff, established one of the most loved and iconic restaurants in mid-Michigan. While the Flint-style Coney Island hot dog was not the invention of the two entrepreneurs, they certainly contributed to making a part of the culinary culture of the Flint region. Ironically, in Macedonia, the coney island hot dog, Flint style, is nowhere to be found on the menu. Our podcast episode guest, Karen Paul Holmes, grew up in Flint, her father, Carl Paul, and Angelo Nikoloff were the original partners of Angelo's Coney Island. While a teenager, Karen waitressed at her father's famous restaurant during summer school recess. Karen shares the story of her hardworking Flint family, whose life work defines Flint almost as much as trucks and cars made in the city.Karen reads three of her most endearing poems. The first poem recalls her father returning home for family dinners after a long work day at Angelo's Coney Island. The second poem is an emotional tribute to her father and his leaving Bouf, Macedonia, for a better life in the United States. The last is a poem of beautiful prose about the Great Lakes and cherry trees and the beauty of her father's newfound home, Michigan. Karen provides a near-recipe for Flint Style Coney Sauce in her second poetry collection, No Such Thing as Distance (Terrapin, 2018), which contains poems about growing up in Michigan and her parents' emigration to Flint from Macedonia and Australia. Poems from that book have been read by Garrison Keillor on The Writer's Almanac and by former U.S.Poet Laureate Tracy K. Smith on The Slowdown podcast.Her first book, Untying the Knot (Aldrich, 2014), chronicles grief and healing from divorce. She has been published in over 100 journals and anthologies and was named the bestemerging poet by Stay Thirsty Media.Politically FitPolitics affects every aspect of your life.

Dave Finley's adage is “The Louder the Snap, the Better the Dog.” He is Director of Food Safety and Compliance at National Coney Island Restaurants, and the dog he is referring to is a coney dog. National Coney Island Restaurants offer brick and mortar locations, food trucks, catering, coney carts, and coney kits. Dave's 31 year journey started with the company as a teen working as a busser and dishwasher. Do you know what a coney dog is? Dave informs us. Dave tells us about the company's success at fostering a culture that results in employee loyalty. Food and Safety is an important part of every business. Dave shares his insight into why he decided to work in this field and what it means for him.
The All Local 4pm update, 9/12/22
Season Two's theme is “Growing Up in Coney Island” through the decades, from the 1930s to the 21st century. In Episode Seven, narrators who grew up here in the 1990s share stories of loss and change. They remember living in Gravesend Houses and Sea Rise apartments as well as on West 5th, West 8th and West 19th Streets. The Boardwalk, the Beach, Astroland, the Cyclone Roller Coaster and the Wonder Wheel were their playgrounds.The decade began with the Cyclone winning a spot on the National Register of Historic Places in 1991. The same year, a fire gutted the wooden house under Coney's other surviving roller coaster from the 1920s, the still standing but nonoperational Thunderbolt. The house was known to film lovers as Woody Allen's boyhood home in the movie Annie Hall, but it was originally built as the Kensington Hotel in the late 1800s. It was the last remaining structure from Coney's original waterfront, since the shoreline at that time was much farther inland than it is now. The 1925 coaster was caught between an owner who neglected it, and City officials who considered it an eyesore. Some viewed the Thunderbolt as a symbol of Coney's decline, but to many, it served as a monument to survival.The oral histories in Episode Seven are with Tiana Camacho, Emmanuel Elpenord, Theresa Giovinni, Allen James, and Marina Rubin The interviews were conducted by Amanda Deutch, Katya Kumkova, Ali Lemer, Samira Tazari, and Tricia Vita between 2014 and 2020. This episode was produced by Charles Denson, Ali Lemer and Tricia Vita. Music by Blue Dot Sessions.This program is sponsored in part by an Action Grant from Humanities New York with funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
