NYC - Brooklyn - Greenpoint: McGolrick Park - McGolrick Park Shelter Pavilion

NYC - Brooklyn - Greenpoint: McGolrick Park - McGolrick Park Shelter Pavilion

In 1910, the architectural firm of Helmle and Huberty erected this pavilion here in Monsignor McGorlick Park. One of many Brooklyn buildings and structures designed by Helmle and Huberty, the crescent-shaped structure of brick and limestone features an elegant wood colonnade connecting two buildings. Each building served as a comfort station, one for men, and the other for women. The pavilion was designed to invoke the feeling of 17th and 18th century French garden structures. The structure is currently listed on the National Register and is protected as a New York City landmark.

Over the years, the structure, exposed to the elements, fell into disrepair. An $850,900 rehabilitation in 1985 provided a new roof, repaired and replaced the brick and stone walkways, removed graffiti, reconstructed the masonry, and replaced windows and doors. The reconstruction plan also reworked the shape of the structure to its original crescent plan, for it had been altered over time. The new interior rooms feature comfort station facilities as well as a community room, and kitchenette.

The 1985 reconstruction strayed slightly from the initial design, and a $552,000 renovation in 2001 paid for by Brooklyn Borough President Howard Golden returned the pavilion to its original condition. A metal roof was installed over the colonnade, which was also raised by four feet. The renovation also removed old coats of paint from the base of the building. The brick, limestone, and granite received a cleaning and the masonry was repaired. On the inside of the buildings, replicas of the original ceiling fixtures were installed. The restrooms in the north building of the pavilion have been refitted with separate entrances for men and women and made handicap-accessible.

The architects Helmle and Huberty designed many notable buildings in Brooklyn during the early 1900s, including the Hotel Bossert in Brooklyn Heights, the Spanish Baroque St. Barbaras Roman Catholic Church in Bushwick, and the Greenpoint Savings Bank in Greenpoint. Above all, the two most famous structures Helmle and Huberty designed are located in Prospect Park: the limestone and yellow brick Tennis House (1910), and the Boathouse (1904). The pavilion in McGolrick park along with the winged victory War Memorial and the Monitor and Merrimac Monument adorn this park with an impressive array of artwork.

The Monsignor McGolrick Park Shelter Pavilion and Attached Buildings were designated a landmark by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1966.

yellowstone Mammoth Hot Springs

yellowstone Mammoth Hot Springs

Mammoth is a large hill of travertine that has been created over thousands of years as hot water from the spring cooled and deposited calcium carbonate (over two tons flows into Mammoth each day in a solution). Although these springs lie outside the caldera boundary, their energy has been attributed to the same magmatic system that fuels other Yellowstone geothermal areas.

The hot water that feeds Mammoth comes from Norris Geyser Basin after traveling underground via a fault line[citation needed] that runs through limestone and roughly parallel to the Norris-to-Mammoth road (the limestone is the source of the calcium carbonate). Shallow circulation along this corridor allows Norris' superheated water to slightly cool before surfacing at Mammoth, generally at about 170°F (~77°C). Algae living in the warm pools have tinted the travertine shades of brown, orange, red, and green.
Elk on travertine terraces, Mammoth Hot Springs

Thermal activity here is extensive both over time and distance. Terrace Mountain at Mammoth Hot Springs is the largest known carbonate-depositing spring in the world. The most famous feature at the springs is the Minerva Terrace, a series of travertine terraces. The terraces have been deposited by the spring over many years but, due to recent minor earthquake activity, the spring vent has shifted, rendering the terraces dry.

The Mammoth Terraces extend all the way from the hillside, across the Parade Ground, and down to Boiling River. The Mammoth Hotel, as well as all of Fort Yellowstone, is built upon an old terrace formation known as Hotel Terrace. There was some concern when construction began in 1891 on the fort site that the hollow ground would not support the weight of the buildings. Several large sink holes (fenced off) can be seen out on the Parade Ground. This area has been thermally active for several thousand years.

The Mammoth area exhibits much evidence of glacial activity from the Pinedale Glaciation. The summit of Terrace Mountain is covered with glacial till, thereby dating the travertine formation there to earlier than the end of the Pinedale Glaciation. Several thermal kames, including Capitol Hill and Dude Hill, are major features of the Mammoth Village area. Ice-marginal stream beds are in evidence in the small, narrow valleys where Floating Island Lake and Phantom Lake are found. In Gardner Canyon one can see the old, sorted gravel bed of the Gardner River covered by unsorted glacial till.
