..."The initial plot was 20 feet by 30 feet and was surrounded by a white picket fence. During the first year often more than 3,000 people an hour visited the Kennedy gravesite, and on weekends an estimated 50,000 people visited. Three years after Kennedy's death, more than 16 million people had come to visit the Kennedy plot." per... http://www.arlingtoncemetery.mil/visitor_information/JFK.html

Mural In Binghamton's First Ward...Originally printed at http://www.wbng.com/news/local/Mural-In-Binghamtons--First-Ward-106907243.html By WBNG News...November 8, 2010... The mural depicts Clinton Street at different historical moments from 1930 to today. The neighborhood assembly started the project with a grant from the City's Neighborhood Development Project Fund. The arts council contributed funding as well. Local youth also participated in the project.
Thanks alot Erich from Austria....geri
At one time, Clinton Street had close to 40+/- bars (most closed now 10/10). There was the 'Clinton Street Run' where you tried to have a drink in each bar in one night (made it to 3)
The Fountain of the Three Rivers (The Schuylkill) by A.S. Calder 1924
Nothing symbolized George F. Johnson’s dedication to the concept of transforming a business enterprise into an extension of the traditional family better than a statue erected in a park that the Johnson family deeded to the City of Binghamton. In the center is seated George F. dressed in formal business attire encircled by a tanner with hide and a small girl presenting the corporate patriarch with a bouquet in gratitude for the company’s generosity to its employees and their families.
Inscribed on each side: "Have Faith in the People," and "Labor is Honorable." ---1923.
Love your pics! My family has had a cabin on Petonia Lake (just west of Greene) since I was a kid. I live in Minnesota now and your pics bring back loads of memories. Great work.
17 N. Chenango - Built in 1851 this 1 1/2 story Gothic Revival home, with its distinctive, ornate bargeboards and cross gable,belonged in 1868 to Col. Joseph Juliand, the grandson of Captain Joseph Juliand.
The street's oldest wood frame building, serving as the Post Office until 1991, was doing business as early as 1821 and miraculously escaped two disasterous fires, the first of which wiped out all the wood buildings west of it to the Chenango Canal in 1848. The second fire, in 1885, did greater damage still, destroying all the
replacement buildings and those beyond to Canal Street.
