9 West 16th Street Building

9 West 16th Street Building

Manhattan, New York City, New York, United States


The bow-fronted house at No. 9 West 16th Street, constructed c. 1846, serves as a distinctive reminder of the period when this section of Manhattan, near Union Square, was a fashionable neighborhood filled with handsome residences. This brick house with its generous width and elegant curved front is a finely-designed example of the Greek Revival style; the unusual bow front is a feature more commonly found on houses in Boston dating from earlier in the nineteenth century. The eared and battered entrance surround, executed in stone, is a distinguishing architectural feature initially derived from Egyptian sources that was popular in Greek Revival rowhouse designs during the 1840s. This house is one of a group of nine residences (four extant1) constructed under the terms of a restrictive agreement which governed the use and overall design of the buildings to ensure that this block of West 16th Street would develop as a fine residential street. Daring the late-nineteenth century and early-twentieth century the area changed from purely residential to one of mixed commercial and residential use. This house has maintained its residential character and simple elegance, and recalls the earliest period of development in this neighborhood west of Union Square.

Development of the Union Square Neighborhood

The block of West 16th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues lay within the original boundaries of a farm belonging to Simon Congo, a free black man in seventeenth-century New York. This property was later incorporated into the holdings of the esteemed landowner Henry Brevoort of the Bowery, a New York civic leader. The northernmost tract of the Brevoort farm was sold to Thomas and Samuel Burling in 1799, and in 1825 John Cowman purchased the section of land now roughly bounded by Fifth and Sixth Avenues and West 16th and 17th Streets. The land remained rural into the 1830s, despite the fact that Fifth and Sixth Avenues were opened to traffic in this area a decade earlier.

The development of this and the surrounding blocks was tied to New York's inexorable march northward. The fact that this area became a prime residential neighborhood was due to its proximity to Union Square. Union Place (as Union Square was originally known) located just over one block to the east, appears on the New York City Commissioners Map of 1807-11, which formalized the street grid of Manhattan above Houston Street. It was formed by the unplanned convergence or "union" of the Bowery Road (Fourth Avenue), and Bloomingdale Road (Broadway), and initially extended from 10th to 17th Streets, on land owned by the Manhattan Bank. In 1815, however, the state legislature reduced the size of Union Place by marking the cross-town artery of 14th Street as its southern boundary. The site was at times used as a potters' field, and as late as 1833 was covered with crude shanties. Laid out by attorney and landowner Samuel B. Ruggles, the new Union Place became an integral part of the city plan in the early 1830s to improve vehicular traffic patterns while providing the amenities of a formal park within the expanding city. After the square was cleared, graded, and paved it was formally opened to the public on July 19, 1839, and sometime thereafter became known as Union Square. The perimeter of the square was soon lined with fine residential buildings, a development pattern which gradually spread to the surrounding blocks as well.

The Residential Development of West 16th Street

As older residential districts further downtown declined or were displaced by mercantile development, the Union Square area, then bordering on the city's northernmost urban limits, acted as a magnet for new residential development in the 1840s, and soon became a prosperous neighborhood of mansions and Greek Revival rowhouses.

John Cowman, who owned extensive real estate throughout this area, died in 1832. His will provided that, after a ten year period, his property was to be divided equally among his three children, but only his son Augustus T. Cowman and his son-in-law Edward S. Mesier (widower of John Cowman's daughter Susan) were still living when the terms of the will were carried out in 1842.3 Augustus T. Cowman (18147-1854) owned a contracting firm in Manhattan and lived in Hyde Park, while Mesier (1803-1854) was a partner in the firm of Mesier & Rich, book publishers and stationery merchants. In 1842, Cowman and Mesier divided the estate of John Cowman, a portion of which extended as far as Union Square. On the north side of West 16th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, Augustus Cowman received the lots from No. 23 to the west and Mesier acquired the property to the east. Mesier proceeded to reorganize eleven of the twenty-five foot wide lots into nine lots, each thirty-three feet, four inches wide (lots 25, 27, 29, 31, 33, 35, 37, 39, 41). He kept the other two twenty-five foot wide lots (lots

The new Capri model is the perfect full awning for touring. The coated polyester material is easy to clean, and lightweight for easy handling. The new printed roof material is fresh, washable and easy to live with. With the panels zipped in the tinted window foil reduces the bright sun rays, and makes the awning a pleasant place to be. The mosquito net window with outside foil cover gives good ventilation.

I attempted to go to the Contemporary Art Museum of St Louis, but they were closed since they were getting ready for a new installation. I know they do not allow photography in their galleries, but I wanted to go into their courtyard to photograph the space. Since I was unable to get into their courtyard, I wandered around the exterior of the building and came across this image.

This image shows the wooden shutters used to keep the heat and light out of the book stores of Francois Mitterand's Bibliotheque Nationale de France (designed by Dominique Perrault and completed in 1995). I'm not quite sure about the logic of keeping the books in glass buildings above the ground, with the reading rooms down below though...

Open Shutters: Poems

Mary Jo Salter’s sparkling new collection, Open Shutters, leads us into a world where things are often not what they seem. In the first poem, “Trompe l’Oeil,” the shadow-casting shutters on Genoese houses are made of paint only, an “open lie.” And yet “Who needs to be correct / more often than once a day? / Who needs real shadow more than play?”

Open Shutters also calls to mind the lens of a camera—in the villanelle “School Pictures” or in the stirring sequence “In the Guesthouse,” which, inspired by photographs of a family across three generations, offers at once a social history of America and a love story.

Darkness and light interact throughout the book—in poems about September 11; about a dog named Shadow; about a blind centenarian who still pretends to read the paper; about a woman shaken by the death of her therapist. A section of light verse highlights the wit and grace that have long distinguished Salter’s most serious work.

Fittingly, the volume fools the eye once more by closing with “An Open Book,” in which a Muslim family praying at a funeral seek consolation in the pages formed by their upturned palms.

Open Shutters is the achievement of a remarkable poet, whose concerns and stylistic range continue to grow, encompassing ever larger themes, becoming ever more open.

Dirt "road" traveled w/permission

Dirt "road" traveled w/permission

I was pleasantly surprised when a farmer gave us permission to drive this dirt road between their wheat field and the fields of flowers owned by their neighbor. It gave me the chance to take some unhurried photos of the fields and enjoy a good time bouncing around in our little "roller skate" Honda Fit, on this dirt road. Nice people, fun times!
Farmers’ permission: On our drive along Oregon highway 213 & 214 from Salem to Silver Falls state park, we noticed some spectacular fields of flowers, being grown in the area for the flower seed trade.

On the way back from our hike at Silver Falls we stopped by three of the farms where I dutifully and properly knocked on the door of each of the three farm houses, to ask permission to enter their land for the purpose of taking photographs. Each of the encounters will be a lasting memory of this road trip. Here is the story of each:

Farmhouse #1: A middle aged man came out from his double story farm house and listened to my request. His response “Nah, I don’t mind a bit if you walk anywhere in the flower fields you want, my one request though, is that you don’t bother any elk you see. They love the flowers”. How great is that? I did in fact see elk tracks entering and exiting the man’s flower fields.

Farmhouse #2: a young woman with a cute little four or five year old daughter came around from the back of the farmhouse, as I was knocking on the front door. She seemed puzzled that I would bother to ask permission then smiled and said “you go just wherever you want and take all the pictures you like”. I complimented her daughter on her bright red new sandals, which brought a big smile to her face. What nice people you meet out in the country.

Farmhouse #3: A nice middle aged lady with a young daughter and a visiting neighbor woman came to the enclosed back porch of their farm house. I made my speech, asking permission to walk around the flower fields for the purpose of taking photos. Not only did I get a “yes” but the lady told me that the hay field was theirs, the flower fields a good neighbors, and that I was welcome to drive our car down the narrow dirt road that separated the two properties and fields. She even told me how I could rejoin a gravel road at the end of the field if I wanted to return to highway 213 another way. How is that for nice? We took her up on her offer and drove slowly (not wanting to raise dust) and got some good photos of the flower fields there.

So that’s my story. The light wasn’t great in all cases, but the farmers sure were. As always my patient and understanding wife, waited in the car most of the time, while I ran around the farmers’ fields, getting my jeans dirty, kneeling in the dirt here and there, to try to capture some nice flower photos and some fine memories as well.
We took a four day, 950 mile counter clockwise looping “road trip” through Oregon (August 3-6th, 2011). The weather was outstanding.

The trip included a little “quality” penny slot machine time for my wife at three Oregon Native American casinos: Spirit Mountain at Grand Ronde; Chinook Winds at Lincoln City; and Kah-Nee-ta at Warm Springs. For me I got some barefoot beach hiking along the Oregon Coast.

Together we took the five mile version of the waterfalls loop hike at Silver Falls state park (our first visit there). Driving highway 213 to and from Silver Falls State Park from Salem, we came across many large farms raising colorful flowers for the packaged flower seed business. We met some really nice people, when we stopped to ask permission at these flower farms, to enter their private property to take photographs. Lots of fun!

We drove the McKenzie Pass highway for the first time. We really enjoyed that scenic drive and for me it was a reconnaissance for future hiking along the Pacific Crest Trail in the Three Sisters Wilderness, with McKenzie Pass serving as the north trailhead.

We had one of the best Mexican dinners we have had in long time at Mazatlan’s in Redmond, Oregon and I managed to convince my wife that we needed a short shopping trip stop at the nice REI store in Bend, Oregon.

We drove some scenic back roads, we had never before traveled, when we visited the Warm Springs reservation for a casino stop for my wife (I read Backpacker magazine under the shade of a tree, sipping on an ice cold lime diet Pepsi).

Our new Honda Fit got a respectable 40 mpg on this trip, with the A/C running much of the time…so we were happy with that. I’m now spoiled by the USB port in the glove box that let’s us play all of our “oldies” favorites from music folders loaded onto a small flash drive. Nothing like lots of good traveling tunes to make a road trip just that much more fun.

Once again, with just the two of us…..a great time was had by each and all. I hope you enjoy some of the photographs we took along our way.

Empathy Leak

Empathy Leak

‘What I try to do is make one copy out of a trillion.’ The young Antwerp artist Andy Wauman (b. 1975) tries to look with unprejudiced eyes at the world around him, at the deluge of visual and verbal information that washes over us every day. Everything in this massively digitised society has become a copy of a copy. The original has become so rare that it may even have lost all real interest. A fascinating idea, that Wauman explicitly plays with: perhaps an original way of copying a copy is more interesting than desperately seeking originality. A pair of worn-out sneakers, for instance, of the kind churned out by the billions in sweatshops, get a new life when he paints them in the colours of the Belgian or the Dutch flag. There is a reference there to the work of Marcel Broodthaers, who once turned a stack of unread poetry books into a sculpture. There was no money in poetry, but the fine arts might do the trick, or so Broodthaers hoped (and he was proved right, in a way).
Meanwhile, Andy Wauman has a good sense of how these things work. He knows his history: not just Marcel Broodthaers, but also artists like Jeff Koons, Barbara Kruger, Richard Prince and Robert Longo have influenced him. The essence: to uncover the meaning imposed by some power or other. To reinterpret things that people take for granted, in word or image, to give them different shapes, to make them read differently. With letter cookies, you can make the sentence ‘What the Fuck am I Kidding’, printed T-shirts can proclaim ‘Think Crooked to see Straight’, rubbish can spell ‘Heart’. The point here is not a verbal or visual pun. Wauman locks horns with the laziness and slavish docility with which
people read words and accord them a meaning that soon becomes a universal cliche.
‘What fascinates me is the creative versatility of chaos. Chaos is important to spread your imagination; chaos that drives you like a bus.’ Creativity needs chaos to prosper. Chaos as the roller coaster for new ideas. The world of information flows, of the internet, but also of mass- consumption goods, is very stimulating. The word ‘Ideal’ seems to have been carved from coal: an old economic commodity that disintegrates easily. ‘Heart’ is made of compressed scrap metal: the world’s discarded mass-produced articles and chaotic rubbish can be used for a new and totally different form.
‘City where all the things pass through human hands’. The city is the no man’s land for Andy Wauman. The graffiti are messages from an anonymous recalcitrant. The tags he draws are, in their turn, interpretations of cliches, copied a thousandfold. ‘Temptation city, asphalt stage, black heart of an unoccupied city’. In the city, in suburbia, things happen; signs, stencils and emblems emerge that are not interpreted and retrieved until later, but meanwhile brand themselves on the retina of the subconscious.
‘Typo ruins in fix letter uniform. Spitting black dust of contemporary consumption.’ Everything wears down and falls to pieces. Today, anything that crumbles, ages or rusts has had its chips. ‘Oxy Date’. But Andy Wauman has a special eye for old things. ‘Social energy’ is what he calls it. The things that are taken to the dump now are the treasures and memories of what was once young and daring itself. ‘Trash in bikini &
media tears’, no one has the right to throw the baby away with the bathwater, to dump old stuff without any respect. Because old stuff is often less of a copy of a copy than all the stuff that is young and new today.
The trivial. ‘I hop from red light to red light. Take the elevator down, 1000 flights & walk the long 7-weeks hall.’ Andy Wauman runs, tears, bikes and hurtles through the beginning of the 21st century. He makes graphic interventions in magazines that try to keep a finger on the pulse of the times: they are glossy and frenetic, but they are always a fraction too late. Wauman points to the trivial, to things even experienced trend-watchers do not notice, because they keep on running after the latest and most original things. Wauman reveals the strength of the trivial, if it is carefully pulled just a few degrees out of joint, if it gets a marginally sharper focus, a slightly distorted form, or a shade less exposure. ‘What I try to do is make one copy out of a trillion.’
