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.

Akron, OH (PRWEB) October 08, 2013

Over the past few years, much focus has been put on Yellow Taxis in New York City by Mayor Bloomberg. Now with his new HAIL program, people in the surrounding boroughs will be able to street hail brand new Green Apple colored taxis and accessible vehicles. MobilityWorks Commercial of Akron, OH has had their wheelchair accessible Toyota Sienna and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans approved for sale to owners and drivers in the five boroughs as an official Green Taxi.

The city has come forward with a $ 15,000 up-front payment to anyone purchasing a new wheelchair accessible taxi. In addition, some may qualify for additional tax credits of up to $ 10,000 or a total of up to $ 25,000 off the purchase of a new accessible taxi. MobilityWorks has had representatives visiting all of the taxi bases in the boroughs to educate and assist base owners and drivers on purchasing the best wheelchair accessible Taxi vans for their needs, and also to provide training after the purchase.

All accessible minivans available from MobilityWorks are rear-entry which is the best choice for picking up hails from either side of the street.

MobilityWorks has been building wheelchair accessible vehicles for companies throughout the United States since 1997, and for taxi companies for the past three years. They continue to develop new vehicle platforms and product innovations, like the exclusive Flex-Flat Ramp, specifically for the taxi industry.

The Flex-Flat Ramp, which was designed based on input from taxi drivers and owners, folds flat when not needed, giving the rear of the van a trunk-like deck for luggage, golf clubs and other cargo. This ramp has created the most versatile taxi available one which can be converted from accessible to standard in seconds.
