Hook



Robin williams is a grown up peter pan and dustin hoffman is the infamous captain hook. Granny wendy darling and tinkerbell must convince the middle-aged lawyer peter banning, that he was once the legendary peter pan in order to save his children from the evil hook. Features: subtitles in english, and much more.

Steven Spielberg's deeply flawed but sporadically fun and moving update of the Peter Pan legend stars Robin Williams as the grown-up Pan, a corporate-takeover type who must embrace his old identity in order to save his kids from Captain Hook (Dustin Hoffman). The stars put on a good show, including Hoffman's read of Hook's hysterical personality, Julia Roberts mini-turn as a tiny Tinker Bell, and Maggie Smith's touching performance as the aged Wendy. The visual contrast between the adult Pan's bustling outside world and the insulated fantasy of Neverland is striking, but Spielberg's ideas about the Lost Boys--politically correct in their ethnic diversity, energetic on skateboards--are contrived and cheapening. On the plus side, the story's theme about adults finding their innocence again through their children is very touching (though some people have found it cloying). If you can look beyond the glaring problems, there's plenty to like here. --Tom Keogh

Fire Engine Company No. 258, Hook and Ladder Company No. 115




Fire Engine Company No. 258, Hook and Ladder Company No. 115





Forty Seventh Avenue, Hunter’s Point, Long Island City, Queens

Built in 1902-4, Fire Engine Company No. 258, Hook and Ladder Company No. 115, is located on 47th Avenue in the Hunter’s Point section of Long Island City. Designed by Bradford Lee Gilbert, the Dutch Renaissance Revival-style structure was erected as part of an ambitious campaign to expand fire protection in Queens and improve working conditions for Queens firefighters. Long Island City was the first area in the borough to have a professional fire department and both companies trace their origins to an act by the New York State Legislature in 1890. The firehouse was among the most ambitious structures planned by the expanded department after 1898.

Gilbert was an extremely prolific architect; he designed branches of the YMCA in New York City, pavilions at the Atlanta International & Cotton State and South Carolina Interstate & West Indian expositions, as well as structures throughout North America for 18 railroad companies. A pioneer in the use of steel framing, he was responsible for the city’s first skyscraper, the Tower Building, in 1887-89. Engine Company No. 258 was built near the end of Gilbert’s career and was his only commission for the New York City Fire Department.

During this period, Long Island City was a major political and industrial center and the four-and-a-half story building is distinguished by a prominent step gable, a feature often associated with early 17th century architecture in Holland, especially work by the Dutch sculptor and architect Hendrick de Keyser. More than fifty-feet wide, the imposing facade has Flemish bond brick with burnt headers, projecting metal cant window bays, and oversized masonry details. Built to house two companies with a long tradition of public service, Engine Company No. 258, Hook and Ladder Company No. 115 is an outstanding example of early 20th century civic architecture and one of the finest firehouses in New York City.

Engine Company No. 258, Hook & Ladder No. 115 occupies a 53-foot-wide lot on the south side of 47th Avenue, mid-block between 11th Street and Vernon Boulevard, in the Hunter’s Point section of Long Island City. The double firehouse is 4 ? stories tall and has two apparatus bays. At the rear of the property is a four-story extension that projects into the yard. The base is faced with granite and rusticated limestone, and the floors above with brick and masonry, possibly cast stone.

Laid in Flemish-style bond, darkened brick headers alternate with rows of stretchers. The doors to each vehicular entrance are non-historic and painted red. Each entrance incorporates a small door for firefighters and two horizontal windows. Metal letters above each bay identify the company. The east bay reads “115 HOOK & LADDER 115” and the west bay “258 ENGINE 258.” Between the doors are four recessed vertical windows. To either side of the apparatus bays are similar vertical windows and down lights. Centered above the windows is a horizontal brass plaque attached to a single rusticated block. Below this plaque is a circular medallion, called a Queensmark. The firehouse is separated from the adjoining structures by narrow gaps. To the east, the gap blocked by part of neighboring building, and to the west, by wood planks.

The second and third stories are divided into three bays. Below each bay, the cornice that divides the first and second story, projects outward. A pair of stone brackets appears to support this projection. Elaborate bronze cant-bay windows project from the second story. Each of the three bays has one-over-one windows. Above each group of windows are decorative metal panels that serve as a balcony that can be reached from the third story. The center panel is embellished with a pointed arch.

A pair of small, arched, non-historic metal windows with keyed surrounds are located in the center bay. The third story has three pairs of one-over-one non-historic windows with fixed transoms. A limestone sill runs beneath the center windows. A flagpole projects from a metal panel between the center windows. At the east and west ends of the third story are large scroll-like reliefs. These embellishments are set against a rectangular panel that may not be original and is painted white.

6 At the fourth story, the step gable rises. Each step is marked by a projecting masonry cornice. At the center of the fourth story is a pair of windows framed by elaborate keyed surrounds.

The one-over-one metal windows with fixed transoms are non-historic. Above the fourth story is the apex of the street facade, consisting of a rounded masonry pediment set atop an inset panel flanked by small inset brick crosses and corbels. The color of this material is identical to the steps that descend on either side.

The east and west facades are brick, painted white. Near the center of the second story is a single, non-historic, one-over-one window. The fourth story sets back on either side to for











The Baker Herb Garden Wall




The Baker Herb Garden Wall





As we were walking around the home and garden show this past weekend I was struck with an idea. I want herbs, but i need them to be off the counters. Well I have this wall that gets pretty good lighting during the day. It is next to our bay window. I have this utensil hanging basket on the wall currently so I moved that to the other side of the cabinet. Carroll installed the hooks while I made the decorative labels. The herbs are growing in the window sill at the moment. When they are ready to be translated I will post and updated photo.

Hook [Blu-ray]






A high-flying adventure from the magic of Steven Spielberg, Hook stars Robin Williams as a grown-up Peter Pan and Dustin Hoffman as the infamous Captain Hook. Joining the fun is Julia Roberts as Tinkerbell, Bob Hoskins as the pirate Smee, and Maggie Smith as Granny Wendy Darling, who must convince the middle-aged lawyer, Peter Banning, that he was once the legendary Peter Pan. And so the adventure begins anew, with Peter off to Neverland to save his two children from Captain Hook. Along the way, he rediscovers the power of imagination, of friendship, and of magic. A classic tale updated for children of all ages, Hook was nominated for five 1991 Academy Awards(r) including best visual effects.
