NYC - Greenwich Village: Time Landscape
NYC - Greenwich Village: Time Landscape
Landscape artist Alan Sonfist (1946- ) created Time Landscape as a living monument to the forest that once blanketed Manhattan Island. He proposed the project in 1965. After extensive research on New York’s botany, geology, and history Sonfist and local community members used a palette of native trees, shrubs, wild grasses, flowers, plants, rocks, and earth to plant the 25' x 40' rectangular plot at the northeast corner of La Guardia Place and West Houston Street in 1978. The result of their efforts is a slowly developing forest that represents the Manhattan landscape inhabited by Native Americans and encountered by Dutch settlers in the early 17th century. The surrounding neighborhood, now known as Greenwich Village, was once a marshland dotted with sandy hills that the Canarsie Indians called the Sapokanican and that the Dutch called the Zantberg. The trout-filled Minetta Brook ran to the west and made the area a favorite spot for fishing and duck hunting. Over the course of three-and-a-half centuries, agricultural, residential, commercial, institutional, and industrial development replaced the natural marshland with an urban landscape. While numerous manmade features (such as buildings and streets) preserve the history of 18th-, 19th-, and 20th-century Greenwich Village, Time Landscape serves as a natural landmark of the 17th and prior centuries. This forested plot invites city-dwellers--including insects, birds, people, and other animals--to experience a bygone Manhattan. When it was first planted, Time Landscape portrayed the three stages of forest growth from grasses to saplings to grown trees. The southern part of the plot represented the youngest stage and now has birch trees and beaked hazelnut shrubs, with a layer of wildflowers beneath. The center features a small grove of beech trees (grown from saplings transplanted from Sonfist’s favorite childhood park in the Bronx) and a woodland with red cedar, black cherry, and witch hazel above groundcover of mugwort, Virginia creeper, aster, pokeweed, and milkweed. The northern area is a mature woodland dominated by oaks, with scattered white ash and American elm trees. Among the numerous other species in this miniforest are oak, sassafras, sweetgum, and tulip trees, arrowwood and dogwood shrubs, bindweed and catbrier vines, and violets. Time Landscape is on city-owned land, assigned to Transportation. It is maintained by Parks under Greenstreets, a program inaugurated in 1986 and reintroduced in 1994 to convert paved street properties, like triangles and malls, into green lawns. Funded through Parks & Recreation’s capital budget, Greenstreets plants trees and shrubs in the city’s barren street spaces. The assistance of volunteers keeps these areas clean and their plants healthy.
NYC - Central Park: Conservatory Water
NYC - Central Park: Conservatory Water
Conservatory Water owes its name to the large glass house intended for the exhibition of tropical plants specified in the guidelines of the 1857 design competition for Central Park. The Greensward Plan, the winning entry submitted by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, proposed a conservatory and ornamental flower beds at this location. Due to lack of funding, the conservatory was never built, and the area configured as a floral parterre was turned into an ornamental pond. The model boat ponds of Paris were the inspiration for the design; model boat racing soon became a popular activity, so much so that Conservatory Water is more familiarly known as the Model Boat Pond. Author E.B. White made it the setting for a memorable race in his much-loved children's book Stuart Little. Visitors can watch a radio-powered racing regatta between members of the Model Yacht Club; they can also rent a miniature boat from a nearby concessionaire. The Kerbs Memorial Boathouse (built in 1954) houses a cafe and a storage facility for model boats. In front of the boathouse is a handsome flagstone patio with benches and tables and colorful flower beds. The landscape surrounding Conservatory Water is notable in its own right. Hundreds of visitors enjoy sledding down Pilgrim Hill (named for the bronze sculpture on its crest) as well as ice skating on the Pond, weather permitting. Horticulturists will spot a columnar European hornbeam and three crepe myrtle trees here, as well as seven species of oak. At the southern end of Conservatory Water are springtime billows of Yoshino cherries. Birders flock to the area to watch for the famous red-tailed hawks — Pale Male and Lola — who have set up housekeeping on a Fifth Avenue apartment ledge. Central Park was designated a scenic landmark by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1974. National Historic Register #66000538

Nefertiti: Unlocking the Mystery Surrounding Egypt's Most Famous and Beautiful Queen
The classic account of Egypt’s most famous queen—now fully revised

For over a decade, Nefertiti, wife of the heretic king Akhenaten, was the most influential woman in the Bronze Age world: a beautiful queen blessed by the sun god, adored by her family, and worshipped by her people. Her image and her name were celebrated throughout Egypt and her future seemed golden. Suddenly Nefertiti disappeared from the royal family, vanishing so completely that it was as if she had never been. No record survives to detail her death, no monument serves to mourn her passing, and to this day her end remains an enigma—her body has never been found. Fully revising her classic biography of Egypt’s sun queen, historian Joyce Tyldesley draws on a wealth of scholarly and archeological evidence to investigate the truth behind the life, times, and mysterious disappearance of the legendary Nefertiti.

She was the beloved wife of "heretic king" Akhenaton, who defied ancient custom by practicing monotheism and by elevating Nefertiti far above the role of subservient consort previously played by Egyptian queens. Her image has ravished Western viewers ever since a magnificent limestone bust unearthed at the royal retreat of Amarna went on display in Berlin in 1924. But frustratingly few facts are known about this woman who lived more than three millennia ago. As she did in Hatchepsut: The Female Pharaoh, British archeologist Joyce Tyldesley makes a virtue of necessity by writing a book that is as much a cultural history as a biography. As Akhenaton swept away the plethora of old gods, dismaying many of his subjects, he needed a strong female figure to soften the abstract austerity of Aten, the sun deity; his beautiful queen was celebrated in official art and inscriptions that focused on the domestic life of the royal family. Tyldesley meticulously analyzes this iconography to evaluate Nefertiti's position in Egypt and her importance to her husband, who clearly cherished her beyond the demands of propriety or political necessity. The author cannot give readers a strong sense of Nefertiti's personality--the evidence simply isn't there--but she paints a wonderfully evocative picture of life at the civilized heart of the ancient world. --Wendy Smith
