First Dog of 1600 Pooch'lvania Avenue: My First Year in Arf! Arf! Office!
1600 Pooch'lvania Avenue - My First Year in Arf Arf Office, Captures Bo s Grrreat and Noble Aspirations and children s Imaginations. 1600 Pooch'lvania Avenue takes young readers on a firsthand tour of the White House, entertaining and educating kids while empowering them to learn more about the inner-workings of the presidency and of our democracy.
Our hero, Bo, inspires the First Family s two daughters to share with other kids the role they can play in helping make our country and the world a better place. He also passes on the principles he learns to fellow dogs in homes and shelters, carrying his message of animal rights and rescue. Kids will laugh as they share Bo s unique perspectives and downright silliness. But they will also find inspiration in his noble mission: to enlist the support of kids all over the world in believing that, together, they can bring about change through education and imagination.
This book is intended to be the first in a series of First Dog books, as well as an animated TV show, focusing on various aspects of the presidency and government. In the spirit of the President s commitment to community involvement, 1600 Pooch'lvania Avenue gives us an opportunity to give back to our community by donating 5% of the net profits to the ASPCA or other animal rights group. The book is for children ages 6 to 10, plus there will also be a preschool version.
Castleton Corners, Staten Island
The Scott-Edwards House, with its Dutch Colonial architecture and Greek Revival alterations of 1840, is a charming country residence. This one and one-half story modest structure with stone basement dates from the early Eighteenth Century.
The combination of bold-faced ashlar masonry of sandstone, for the ground floor, and clapboard above contributes to its picturesque beauty. The superior architectural quality of this House, as remodelled, is enhanced by a variety of shrubbery and trees in a beautifully landscaped site.
The 1840 additions included a handsome Greek Revival portico. The long, graceful swoop of the roof is supported by seven box columns forming a spacious veranda extending the width of the facade. Floor to ceiling windows of the double hung type are complemented by panelled shutters.
Above these windows, and set under the eaves, is a row of low attic windows. Centered in the white-washed stone wall are two entrance doors framed with plain pilasters and flanked by narrow side lights. The rear of the House features a bay window with insets of English tinted glass, considered to be over two hundred years old. The garage to the left of the veranda is a Twentieth Century addition.
The Scott-Edwards House was built on a parcel of the old Governor Dongan grant of 1677. The property later came into the possession of Governor Dongan's nephew. A search does not show clear ownership of the House during the Revolutionary period, and presumably the residence was a tenant house on the Dongan Estate. During the 1840's the residence became the home of Judge Ogden Edwards, a descendant of Jonathan Edwards and cousin of Aaron Burr.
The Judge later was appointed a New York Supreme Court Justice, the first to have come from Staten Island. The Judge lived here from 1840 to 1850. From 1881 to 1892 the House was owned by Adam Scott, a florist. Subsequently, the residence passed into the hands of Samuel Henshaw, an employee of the Bronx Botanical Gardens. Mr. Henshaw was in large part responsible for the skillful planting of the shrubbery which enhances the overall appeal of the architecture.
