My grandfather took these images with a camera that his father, also an amateur photographer and mechanical engineer, had given him in 1938—a Bee Bee 6x9 folding roll film camera sold by Burleigh Brothers, a New York City photography store where my grandfather's brother worked. His log entries at right indicate where and when he took the pictures ("9-11-40, 7:30, Peri Trylon, Light: Night"); the type of film he used (Agfa Superpan Premium black and white film, noted as "SPP"); and how the negatives turned out when he developed the film: many "Excellent," some "Spoiled in Dev. [Development]." My father now owns the camera, and roughly half of the negatives remain.

Although my grandfather developed his film from the Fair into negatives (the first step in turning film into photographs), he never printed the negatives into actual images due to the high cost of and wartime restrictions on the additional chemicals and papers needed to create prints. Instead, he filed the negatives away and went about his postwar life building his career and raising his four children with my grandmother in suburban New Jersey.

Fifty-five years later, in 1995, as he was cleaning out his things, he came across the World's Fair negatives along with several hundred more he had taken of steam locomotives throughout the 1930s. He gave all the negatives, plus a collection of vintage cameras and locomotive memorabilia, to his son—my father, Henry, who is also a railroad enthusiast and amateur photographer with a fully functioning darkroom.

My grandfather, who taught my father the art of film photography, emphasized to him the importance of developing film at all costs. "You can always print the negatives at a later time," he had said. As a surprise for my grandfather's eighty-first birthday in 1995, my father printed the remaining collection of 1939 World's Fair negatives and put it on exhibit at a New Jersey library with the title "Nite Sites." My grandfather was overcome.

Some of my fondest memories are my grandfather's coming of age stories in 1930s New York—stories that continue to color my experiences as a New Yorker today. This past February would have been my grandfather's 100th birthday. He died a month before 9/11 at the age of eighty-seven, but his images commemorate the experience of that time and the generational bonds forged over art, innovation, and our beloved city.

Brings tears to my eyes it's so beautiful.  When this bald eagle was found last year after being hit by a vehicle, rescuers at the Wildlife Center of Virginia took him in and nursed it back to health. When the bald eagle was feeling well enough to return to his home, Wildlife Center co-founder Ed Clark had the pleasure of releasing the gorgeous bird back into the wild at the Rappahannock River Valley National Wildlife Refuge.

Watch the video to see the amazing release!

Customer Service is horrible and I'd say about 85% of the time the order is incorrect, even after they've repeated it back to you and have shown it on the screen asking you if it's correct! WTH?? This is what happens when a restaurant hires foreigners who can barely speak English let alone understand what you are saying take orders :/ Geeez.

Google to get your menu, taken here to your Google+ page...click on link for menu, then taken to urbanspoon and get nothing. Great :( Hey folks, get the person who is supposed to be maintaining your page here to put your menu on YOUR Google+ page and don't send us anywhere else. Geeez. I think I may have an old one, will check. I will say every single time I've eaten at Applebee's and ordered ANY steak, there is more gristle in it than meat. And for the price you pay for it...I WANT MEAT!

Well now isn't this some b.s.! My son receives a letter from him in the mail just yesterday, June 4, 2014 asking if he needed help with filing bankruptcy. He just called the number listed on the letterhead and was told he had the wrong number. He tried back, asked if this was the law office of J. Edward Oliver, Attorney at Law, and they hung up on him. Hmmmm. What is going on here????
