NYC – Bowling Green: Alexander Hamilton Custom House

Image by wallyg
The Alexander Hamilton Custom House is one of New York’s finest examples of Beaux Arts architecture, incorporating City Beautiful Movement planning principles with architecture, engineering, and fine arts. The seven story structure with 450,000 square feet sits on three city block in Bowling Green.

It is here, at the southern terminus of the old Algonquin trade route, Wiechquaekeck Trail, that Peter Minuet purchased the island of Manhattes for trinkets valued at 60 guilders, or about , from the Lenape Indians in 1626. Soon thereafter the Dutch West India Company built Fort Amsterdam on this site, which came to be the nucleus for the New Amsterdam settlement. After the American Revolution the fort was replaced by the brick Government House, which was intended to be but never used as a residence for the President. Instead it became the residence of New York Governors DeWitt Clinton and John Jay. The building served briefly as the Custom House from 1799 and 1815 before being torn down and replaced with rowhouses.

Before a federal income tax was imposed in 1916, a primary source of revenue for the federal government was custom duty. New York City, as the country’s most active port, has had a Custom House since the country’s founding in in 1781. In 1899, the United States Department of the Treasury acquired the Bowling Green property and sponsored a competition to build a new U.S. Custom House. Minnesotan Cass Gilbert, who later designed the Woolworth Building, won the competition by designing a building that was not just a functional building for commerce, but exuded a palatial grandeur. Construction began in 1900 and completed in 1907.

The interior of the building is dominated by the huge rotunda, which survives as one of the largest public spaces in New York. Commissioned In 1936 as part of the Treasury Relief Art Project, Reginald Marsh was commissioned to paint the elliptical space around the 140-ton skylight with sixteen frescoes. The larger sections portray eight successive stages of the arrival of an ocean liner in the harbor. Eight smaller panels, painted in grisaille to simulate statuary, depict famous explorers like Amerigo Vespucci, Christopher Columbus, Giovanni da Verrazano and Henry Hudson.

Above the main cornice on the sixth story are standing sculptures representing the great commercial sea-faring nations, from the Phoenicians to the Americans.

Central to Gilbert’s design of the Custom House were four separate sculptures to be placed at the front entrance of the Custom House, representing four continents (from left to right) – Asia, America, Europe and Africa. Gilbert asked both Daniel Chester French and August Saint-Gaudens both to submit designs for the sculptures. Saint-Gaudens declined the invitation, citing other work he was occupied with, so French received the commission. French began designing the sculptures of "Continents" in 1903 and they were completed and installed in 1907. Art scholars consider French’s "Continents" to be perhaps the best examples of architecture sculpture in the United States. Each of the four "Continents" represent a view of the continents through French’s early 20th century lens: Asia and Africa are still cloaked in mystery, Europe is in the waning years of its colonial conquests, and America is emerging as a new, vibrant society.

The building was subsequently abandoned in the 1970’s and was scheduled for demolition before being saved and restored in the early 1980’s. In 1987, the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York occupied the building and in 1994, the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian took over two floors of the Old Custom House.

The United States Custom House was designated a landmark by the New York Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1965. Its interior was designated separately in 1979.

American Fork, UT (PRWEB) September 25, 2013

When Nancy Wells of Pura Vida Energy Systems of Monroeville, Pennsylvania, was referred to TRA Snow and Sun, Inc. by Big D Electric of Cumberland, Maryland, her goal was to solve a couple of problems. She needed a solar mounting system that would span across a 20 foot valley on a metal roof as well as a system for the 16 story tower condominium complex in Jaco, Costa Rica.

The government exclusively controlled Costa Rica’s electrical system until 2010 and it took a year for Pura Vida to establish their solar business there. They now have three locations in Costa Rica, and a license from the government to import renewable energy products duty-free and sales tax exoneration. Pura Vida is an expert in dealing with the import/export issues, environmental factors, and government regulations. Installing solar panels on the existing Vista las Palmas, VLP, condominium complex included systems on a tower, gym and several carports. The tower and carport designs provided special challenges.

Travis Washburn, CAD/CAM Engineer at TRA Snow and Sun, routinely sees various Flush Mount, Elevated, and Ballasted Solar Mounting Systems cross his desk, but he had never designed a mounting system spanning valleys quite like the VLP project in Jaco. Solar mounting rail spans are generally six feet or shorter to be able to withstand wind loads without being blown over. Washburn said, “The challenge on the elevated carport was the fact that the there was a twenty foot span across the valley that required engineered bracing at specific intervals. The twenty foot span is three times longer than the longest allowable rails span, requiring engineering and calculations.” TRA engineers and Pura Vida were in constant contact with each other using information such as wind load and elevation to design a system that would hold up under their specific conditions. Recently completed in September, there are more than 200 solar panels mounted using TRA’s engineered Elevated System on several carports and entrances to the complex.

The condominium tower was another challenge for Pura Vida due to its height – 236 feet or 16 stories. Nancy Wells, Design Engineer for Pura Vida, stated, “For some of our first projects we cut the racking using locally obtained rails. For this one, we felt we needed some engineering so we contacted a number of different companies and their responses were usually, ‘A tower that is 236 feet off the ground? You can’t put racking up there. We can’t warrant that it will withstand the wind.'” TRA was able to design a Flush Mounted Solar Mounting System that is warranted against wind uplift, sheer and wind download. There are now 80 panels and micro-inverters securely mounted on the tall ocean view condominium tower providing energy for the common property, which includes lighting, elevators, two redundant air condition chiller units, along with water and pool pumps for the 51 residential units in the building.

Wells explains the benefits of TRA’s engineering, “TRA was so patient with us. They knew what questions to ask and stayed with it until we found the correct solutions. Their effort to provide the custom engineering was very important. Because TRA has the experience in this field, they also knew the right questions to ask us. We relied heavily on that in this project.”

TRA Snow and Sun, Inc., located in American Fork, Utah, offers Roof Snow Retention Devices, Solar Mounting Systems and Roof Ventilation and Flashing Solutions. They provide all customers, from the individual homeowner to the big developer, free engineered designs for all their systems.

AmpliTube Custom Shop Goes Boutique with Officially Certified Models from Dr. Z®, Fulltone® and Z.Vex™

New gear models in the AmpliTube Custom Shop software

Sunrise, FL (PRWEB) August 01, 2013

IK Multimedia, a pioneer and global leader in music-creation software, mobile apps and music-making hardware, announces a new version of AmpliTube Custom Shop (version 3.11), its full-featured guitar-and-bass multi-FX application and plug-in for Mac/PC. The new release includes new gear models from several of the hottest boutique manufacturers on the market today, including Dr. Z Amplification, Fulltone, and Z.Vex effects, which will be available for à la carte purchase from the online store integrated in AmpliTube Custom Shop.

The new version also adds 64 and 32-bit AAX (Avid Audio Extension) compatibility. As a result, AmpliTube now integrates seamlessly with the latest versions of Avid Pro Tools®.

Boutique and New Gear

The new models include two amps from Dr. Z Amplification. One is the MAZ 18 Jr., which was originally designed as a plug-in-and-play amp for studio musicians who wanted a quick way to dial up fabulous tone. It features a perfectly balanced design with an all-tube preamp along with power and rectifier sections that harmoniously produce a smooth top end and tight bass response with tons of headroom. A model of its matching 1×12 MAZ cabinet is available as a separate purchase.

Also from Dr. Z is the Z Wreck amp, a collaboration with the late Ken Fischer of Trainwreck Circuits and country superstar Brad Paisley, who has used one for years. It provides an unmatched level of touch response and tone, and can deliver everything from Liverpool to rock to twang. Its all-tube design gives it warmth, crunch and growl at different volume levels, and provides voicing like no other amp in its class. The 2×12 Z Wreck, a model of the amp’s matching cabinet, is available for purchase, as well.

The Fulltone OCD® overdrive pedal was designed to give players exactly what classic all-tube amplifiers provide when cranked up: sweet, full overdrive complete with multiple complex harmonics and overtones. The touch response rivals what you’d get on a tube amplifier – alter your attack or back off on your volume and you’ll hear the OCD respond. The OCD lives up to its name when it comes to full attention to detail, and can truly be called the king of overdrive pedals.

Also new are two officially certified creative effects from Z.Vex Effects: Seek Wah™ and Seek Trem™. These two stomps offer full control over the timing and level of wah and tremolo effects, respectively, over a sequence of 4, 6 or 8 steps, providing players with a new sonic palette of rhythmic effects, and non-traditional control over classic effect types. Each effect has eight “control” knobs, which allow players to adjust the amount of the effect at the marked position, and offer full control over tempo, number of “slices” and blending. Tempo can be controlled by the host clock or adjusted independently giving players creative flexibility.
