2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Bowery Boys' official companion to their wildly popular, award-winning podcast It was 2007. Sitting at a kitchen table and speaking into an old karaoke microphone, Greg Young and Tom Meyers recorded their first podcast. They weren't history professors or voice actors. They were just two guys living in the Bowery and possessing an unquenchable thirst for the fascinating stories from New York City's past. Nearly 200 episodes later, The Bowery Boys podcast is a phenomenon, thrilling audiences each month with one amazing story after the next. Now, in their first-ever book, the duo gives you an exclusive personal tour through New York's old cobblestone streets and gas-lit back alleyways. In their uniquely approachable style, the authors bring to life everything from makeshift forts of the early Dutch years to the opulent mansions of The Gilded Age. They weave tales that will reshape your view of famous sites like Times Square, Grand Central Terminal, and the High Line. Then they go even further to reveal notorious dens of vice, scandalous Jazz Age crime scenes, and park statues with strange pasts
The Champion : a story of America's first film town( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Mark Dintenfass arrived in Fort Lee in 1910, the sleepy New Jersey town just a ferry ride away from Manhattan was already a favorite location for nickelodeon-era filmmakers. Why not, he reasoned, build a studio and save on the expense and hassle of travel across the Hudson? Purchasing land and a building in nearby Englewood Cliffs, Dintenfass founded the Champion Studios, where he produced silent westerns and Civil War epics. Others followed, and soon there were movie studios all over Fort Lee. Sadly, the land rush proved to be a bubble that burst when the American film industry moved west to Hollywood. Based on Richard Koszarski's book, Fort Lee, the Film Town, The Champion tells the story of that brief golden age and of a modern-day fight to save the era's last remaining studio - reminding us that the preservation of cinema history involves more than just the restoration of the films themselves

Unmanned effects (UFX) : taking the human out of the loop by United States( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The purpose of Project Alpha is to discover, explore, and accelerate good ideas across the Department of Defense (DOD). The good ideas are selected and vetted for their potential to assist in the USJFCOM-charted mission to experiment with transformation of the future joint force. Unmanned Effects is one of those candidate ideas. The purpose of this Rapid Assessment Process report is to document the advances in robotics and urge early adoption of robotic concepts. This report discusses the feasibility of employing autonomous robotic forces (called Tactical Autonomous Combatants or TACs in this paper) for a variety of military applications. In the following pages you will read about technological advances that can change the fundamental way wars are fought. We believe it is not so much a question of if this transformation will happen, but one of when, by whom and how efficiently. Project Alpha team members believe that the introduction of unmanned entities into the battlespace promises to have a greater impact on future conflict than any other technological innovation to date. Our research has convinced us that unmanned entities will provide significant new capabilities to the forces, and that the capabilities will be available sooner, rather than later - if decisions are made to pursue the robotic course. Based on our discussions with the technologists, we believe that if we can articulate a future vision and provide clear goals and adequate resources, the scieintific community can create it. The disagreements among the scientific community about the feasiblity of future robotic forces are slight, and they deal primarily with the question of when the technological advancements will occur, not if they will occur. This report discusses our vision for the role of unmanned entities in future joint forces. We discuss the technical feasibilities and the value of employing autonomous unmanned entitites. Short vignettes (such as the one on the next page) are spread throughout the report to show how unmanned entities might be used in future military operations. They offer only a hint of the possible. Much more exploration will be required to determine how to best use the unmanned entities in various domains and scenarios and what capabilities will be required
