NJ - Hoboken: Stevens Institute of Technology - Babbio Center - Boswell Engineering Terrace
Made by wallyg
The Lawrence T. Babbio Center, a six-story, 95,000 six-story, 95,000 square foot structure, functionas as the headquarters for the Wesley J. Howe School of Technology Management at Stevens Institute of Technology. Construction was made possible by a generous personal gift of $6 million from Lawrence T. Babbio, Jr., the Vice Chairman of Verizon and the Chairman of the Board of Stevens Institute, and an additional $18 million in contributions from strong Stevens supporters, including Verizon, Lucent, AT&T, the State of New Jersey and other esteemed Stevens alumni. The architect for the Babbio Center was Ecoplan, P.A.. A visually strong masonry building is offset by a transparent glass atrium entrance hall and a sculptural circular stainless steel structure containing the main auditorium and several levels of lecture halls. Dynamic interior spaces are created by the interaction of these three major shapes. Accent lighting encircles the auditorium and more dramatic lighting enlivens the main atrium space, creating a glow to be seen throughout the campus and across the Hudson. The Babbio Center was built with sustainable technologies, a showcase “environmentally conscious” structure.

The green-veined, serpentine rock overlook was mentioned in the log by the navigator in Henry Hudson's ship Half Moon in 1609 as it journeyed up the river. A pavilion was erected in Elysian Fields by Col. John Stevens in 1830 and later was turned into a hotel which faced the Hudson River. In 1888 when the hotel was torn down by the Stevens family, a cannon was excavated whose legend dated back to the Revolutionary War. It was believed to be brought over from France during the Revolution. It was placed on Castle Point where the Stevens Family resided and is still there as a protector of the Point.

STEVENS POLICE

STEVENS POLICE

HOBOKEN NJ: STEVENS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY: When I enrolled in Stevens back in 1960 there wasn't ONE girl in the student body with a body. Actually, there wasn't even one girl IN the student body. So there I was three years ago back on campus for the first time in years getting ready to snap a pic of the Stevens MouseMobile [what we called the campus cop cars] when this very pretty girl [a Stevens student] walked in front of me. I snapped the shutter, but I never never refocused the shot. So, let that be a lesson to you boys and girls, always be ready for the most unlikely event. 9634

Sybil's Cave -- Hoboken, NJ, August 23, 2009

Sybil's Cave -- Hoboken, NJ, August 23, 2009
Made by baseballoogie
A popular medicinal spring during the early 19th century, Sybil's Cave was eventually closed down because of health concerns, and then covered over and lost in the early 20th century. It was re-discovered and re-opened in the early 21st century by then Mayor David Roberts (though not without some controversy on the expense). The cave itself is famous for being the setting of Edgar Allen Poe's The Mystery of Marie Roget. The monumental arch is a stylized foam replica of the original stone arch that existed before the cave was closed for health reasons. Hoboken, NJ, 08/23/09

NJ - Hoboken: Sybil's Cave
Made by wallyg
Sybil's Cave is a cave with a water spring, that is now buried at the bottom of the Stevens Institute of Technology hill, near the Castle Point Skate Park. The cave was a major attraction in Hoboken in the 19th century. It has inspired many legends and stories for more than 100 years. The cave opened in 1832 and was shut in the 1880s due to Health Department concerns about its water, and was filled with dirt and concrete during the 1930s. Edgar Allan Poe used a real event that occurred in 1841 at Sybil's Cave as a basis for the detective story The Mystery of Marie Roget

Yesterday was a nightmare. My stuff is still wet! My 85mm f/1.8 lens took a hard hit from the wave. The water has crippled the USM Autofocusing unit to where it can no longer auto focus. Today was all about manual focus! I'm bummed about my lens being broken, but at least I can still see through it. Has anyone experience something like this before? I'm going to email Canon tomorrow to see if there is something that can be done about it. Maybe I just need to let it dry? I don't know :( This was shot with that very lens. Still works. :)

PLANE - HELICOPTER CRASH

PLANE - HELICOPTER CRASH
Made by kevinh_photos
On August 8 2009 a small fixed wing plane collided with a sight seeing helicopter over New Jersey, just off the Hudson River. Both aircraft then crashed into the Hudson River. Despite heroic attempts by rescue personnel (including NYPD, FDNY, NJ STATE POLICE, HOBOKEN POLICE, and ALL of the MEDICAL EMS CREWS) there were no survivors. In total it is believed that 9 people perished in what was described as an unsurvivable mid-air collision. Our prayers go out to the families and friends of those who were lost.

Three kids who rode their bikes to Frank Sinatra Park in Hoboken, New Jersey look out over the Hudson River to New York City on the other shore. They could also be looking at the giant cruise ship floating by that seems to take up half the river. One of my friend Sharon's (who I was staying with in Brooklyn) friends said that this ship was pretty much nothing and there were actually some larger cruise ships which sail up and down the Hudson.

Not the docks from the Brando film, in fact no commercial shipping at all. The last commercial ship I was on here was the SS Savannah. It was the first nuclear-powered cargo-passenger ship, built in the late 1950s and a thing of beauty, a ship of bright possibilities. This was before our business community made the decision to kill our merchant fleet. www.nssavannah.net

Happy Fence Friday! Glad I found this. Please view large! Explore #13 This is my view from where I used to live. I miss it so much. I was reading about the Empire State Building and came across this interesting fact: On December 2, 1979, Elvita Adams jumped from the 86th floor, only to be blown back onto the 85th floor and left with a broken hip.

This is not a great photo but I wanted to post it to the Stevens Institute of Technology group. This is from our wedding - Feb. 26 1977. It is taken on the Stevens Point, on campus, in Hoboken. There was LESS of each us then (but MORE hair). We met at Stevens. You can see the World Trade Center in the upper right, across the Hudson River.

taken in 2000 or early 2001. view of the nyc skyline from across the river in hoboken, nj. at the time i just thought it was odd that the cannon was pointed right at the city...later on, as the events of 9/11 unfolded, the photograph took on a much more chilling tone. black and white negative printed on color paper.
