002 - USA - 2012.
"Imagine, Strawberry Fields" @ Central Park, New York City, New York, - USA 2012.
New York City.
Today our second full day in New York City, again travelling into New York City from Newark, New Jersey by PATH Train. We visited The Top Of The Rock, looking at the beautiful City of Manhattan and The New York City Skyline from this fantastic viewing area at Top Of The Rock. We also visited The Rockefeller Plaza, Central Park, Strawberry Fields, Hotel Edison, as this was the hotel I stayed at in 1980, Times Square, Grand Central Station Madison Square Garden, Jack Demsey's Bar, and just walking around New York City, taking in the atmosphere and sights special to New York City.
This was another very tiring day, but well worth it. We travelled back to our hotel in Newark, dinner and couple of beers, we just chilled out before falling asleep
"We Love This City”.

Monopoly
Although it always had hundreds of competitors, Standard Oil gradually gained dominance of oil refining and sales as market share in the United States through horizontal integration, ending up with about 90% of the US market. In the kerosene industry, the company replaced the old distribution system with its own vertical system. It supplied kerosene by tank cars that brought the fuel to local markets, and tank wagons then delivered to retail customers, thus bypassing the existing network of wholesale jobbers. Despite improving the quality and availability of kerosene products while greatly reducing their cost to the public (the price of kerosene dropped by nearly 80% over the life of the company), Standard Oil’s business practices created intense controversy. Standard’s most potent weapons against competitors were underselling, differential pricing, and secret transportation rebates.
The firm was attacked by journalists and politicians throughout its existence, in part for these monopolistic methods, giving momentum to the antitrust movement. By 1880, according to the New York World, Standard Oil was “the most cruel, impudent, pitiless, and grasping monopoly that ever fastened upon a country”. To critics Rockefeller replied, “In a business so large as ours … some things are likely to be done which we cannot approve. We correct them as soon as they come to our knowledge.”
At that time, many legislatures had made it difficult to incorporate in one state and operate in another. As a result, Rockefeller and his associates owned dozens of separate corporations, each of which operated in just one state; the management of the whole enterprise was rather unwieldy. In 1882, Rockefeller’s lawyers created an innovative form of corporation to centralize their holdings, giving birth to the Standard Oil Trust. The “trust” was a corporation of corporations, and the entity’s size and wealth drew much attention. Nine trustees, including Rockefeller, ran the 41 companies in the trust. The public and the press were immediately suspicious of this new legal entity, and other businesses seized upon the idea and emulated it, further inflaming public sentiment. Standard Oil had gained an aura of invincibility, always prevailing against competitors, critics, and political enemies. It had become the richest, biggest, most feared business in the world, seemingly immune to the boom and bust of the business cycle, consistently making profits year after year.

Francis Bannerman VI, the castle’s eponym, was born on March 24, 1851, in Dundee, Scotland, immigrated to the United States with his parents in 1854. The family moved to Brooklyn in 1858 and began a military surplus business near the Brooklyn Navy Yard in 1865 purchasing surplus military equipment at the close of the American Civil War. In 1867 the business occupied a ship chandlery on Atlantic Avenue engaged in the purchase of worn rope for papermaking. The store on the 500-block of Broadway opened in 1897 to outfit volunteers for the Spanish–American War. The business bought weapons directly from the Spanish government before it evacuated Cuba; and then purchased over 90 percent of the Spanish guns, ammunition, and equipment captured by the United States military and auctioned off by the United States government. Bannerman’s illustrated mail order catalog expanded to 300 pages; and became a reference for collectors of antique military equipment.
Bannerman purchased the island in November 1900, for use as a storage facility for his growing surplus business.11 Because his storeroom in New York City was not large enough to provide a safe location to store thirty million surplus munitions cartridges, in the spring of 1901 he began to build an arsenal on Pollepel. Bannerman designed the buildings himself and let the constructors interpret the designs on their own. Most of the building was devoted to the stores of army surplus but Bannerman built another castle in a smaller scale on top of the island near the main structure as a residence, often using items from his surplus collection for decorative touches. The castle, clearly visible from the shore of the river, served as a giant advertisement for his business. On the side of the castle facing the western bank of the Hudson, Bannerman cast the legend “Bannerman’s Island Arsenal” into the wall.
Construction ceased at Bannerman’s death in 1918. In August 1920, 200 tons of shells and powder exploded in an ancillary structure, destroying a portion of the complex. Bannerman’s sales of military weapons to civilians declined during the early 20th century as a result of state and federal legislation. After the sinking of the ferryboat Pollepel, which had served the island, in a storm in 1950, the Arsenal and island were essentially left vacant. The island and buildings were bought by New York State in 1967, after the old military merchandise had been removed, and tours of the island were given in 1968. However, on August 8, 1969, fire devastated the Arsenal, and the roofs and floors were destroyed. The island was placed off-limits to the public.

Inside the Oculus
The Oculus is a most amazing piece of architectural art in Downtown Manhattan at the WTC. It is the new Subway hub for the area. And has a very organic feel. This was taken through my 7.5mm fish-eye lens, which (weirdly) makes all the curves look straight ;) It is a HUGE space.

Manhattan Sunset Skyline (New York)
Check how photo looked straight from the camera, how it was taken and processed:
http://www.phototraces.com/deconstructing-photo/manhattan-sunset-skyline-new-york/

HDR Processed: Lightroom, Photoshop, Photomatix
Bracketing: 3 shots (-2; 0; +2)

This view was like the grand prize of my latest trip to New York. As usual, it was a busy and exhausting day with lots of walking in hot and sticky weather with multiple short, yet intense rainfalls.

I was very happy that instead of driving to my hotel through busy tunnels I was taking a ferry ride to Staten Island where I stayed this time.

It is not very often that you see such a beautiful summer sunset with clear air in New York City, but that was the day. After three days of witnessing boring and forgettable evenings, I finally could capture the rejuvenated New York City skyline with new One World Trade Center at its best.
