New York State Supreme Court, Queens County, Long Island City
New York State Supreme Court, Queens County, Long Island City
Long Island City, Queens, New York City, New York, United States The courthouse at Long Island City, a dignified and monumental neo-English Renaissance building designed in the early years of the twentieth century, today houses a branch of the State Supreme Court. A prominent structure in Queens, it is not only architecturally notable, but also a striking visual reminder of the history of the area. The first court sessions of Que ens were held in the mid 1600s at a meeting hall in Jamaica. In 1683 the General Assembly ordered that a court session be held annually at Jamaica. The construction of a "sessions-house" and prison in Jamaica had been authorized as early as 1666, but it was not until sometime after 1669 that the structure was completed by the contractor under penalty of fine of ten pounds for non-completion. It had been agreed that the townspeople would keep and repair the building for twenty-one years provided that they be allowed to worship in it on Sundays. During the Revolutionary War the British commander ordered the old courthouse torn down and its materials used to construct barracks and huts for his troops. As a result, by 1784 the old stone Presbyterian church in the area was being used as a courthouse. From 1785 to 1798 a new courthouse-jail was under construction which was later called the "Old Brig". The "Old Brig" had a colorful history and one sheriff, in the early 1800s, sold liquor there in his spare time. This lively situation grew worse with time and regularly led to raucous behavior and fights. Attempts were made to clean up the courthouse which finally led to legal action to stop liquor sales. The resourceful sheriff, obeying the legal notice, built a lean-to shed in front of the building and continued to ply his trade through an adjoining window into the courthouse. During the late 1820s renewed campaigns to correct the situation were successful. The "Old Brig" continued to function as the county courthouse until 1877 after which time-it served as the County Insane Asylum for a number of years. In 1910, after being vacant for some time, "Old Brig" burned down. The fire was seen for miles by the local residents who had always described the old building as resembling a windmill. In the mid-nineteenth century ic had been decided to move the Queens County Seat from Jamaica to a more convenient location, A logical site for this relocation was near the convergence of all the Long Island railroad lines in the newly formed township of Long Island City. Long Island City had previously consisted of several communities, the most important of which were Newtown and Astoria. Rapid development in the 1860s resulted in a series of disjointed areas without sufficient municipal services, while corrupt politicians, the most notorious group being the Newtown ring, consisting mainly of liquor dealers, were in power. These conditions inspired local residents to action in 1870, and or. May 6 of that year incorporation of the area as a township was approved by the state legislature. The name Lang Island City was probably first suggested by Levi Hayden who prophesied in 1853 that this area would eventually be united as "Long Island City." In 1865 The Star newspaper began publishing as Che Long Island Star, its new name suggesting the growth of community spirit and identity. Abram D. Ditmars was elected the first mayor of the new township and he appointed a charter committee to review and suggest better ways to manage the new city. The result of their efforts was the implementation of a public school system, the surveying and paving of streets, the establishment of a regular police force, equitable tax assessments and, most important of all, a pure water supply. As the town grew, the older English and Dutch families were replaced by the Irish and other immigrants from Europe. The last Long Island City mayor "Battle-Axe" Gleason was the most colorful of these public-spirited individuals. Gleason earned his name in July of 1888 when he and his supporters, armed with axes, chopped to pieces a fence erected by the Long Island railroad on a local street as a barrier intended to force the general public to purchase railroad tickets in order to pass through. Due to forceful action like this the voters twice re-elected the popular Gleason mayor, and when his fight for his constituency led to a brief stay in jail, "Battle-Axe" was supplied with home-cooked supper and champagne. Queens County originally included what is now both Queens and Nassau Counties until the city of Greater New York was formed in 1898. At that time approximately one third of the more populous parts of the original county were consolidated as an administrative entity known as the Borough of Queens. Eleven years later the Queensboro Bridge was completed and connected Long Island City with Manhattan. The bridge made it convenient to commute to Long Isla

There were four primary manufactures of Kodak's disc film format. They were Kodak Fuji 3M Konica Not to be saying anything at all about the quality of these films when they were new the following is a duscussion of what the trend is when developing these films now. First off you must be aware and very aware of the generation number of any particular disc film. it's location is noted in lovely red text in the supplied photo. The higher the number the newer the film per brand. That is not to say that a Kodak gen 3 is the same vintage as a Fuji gen 3. They're not. I'll do my best to explain...anyone that knows better then I do please don't hesitate to let me know and I'll check and change the info if I can Kodak manufactured generations 1 to 8. Number ones from the inception of disc film in 81 and 8s from the discontinuation of disc film in 97. The other generations fall pretty evenly inbetween. It does not follow that the older the film the worse condition that it is in. Here's the kodak trend. Number 1s turn out better then 2s to 5s but 2s to 5s get progressively better. Of all of the Kodak disc film the number 6s are the worst. 90% percent of them have some degree of solarization (some dye layers reversing out into positive creating a this effect). 30% of the number sevens are the same while the other 70 are generally still pretty good. Number 8s are the Cadillac of any unexposed disc film that you may find. Almost all are at least OK. Avoid 5 to 2 progressively more. Shoot a 6 if you want something really whacky looking, take a chance with a 7 or a 1 and if you find an 8 grab it! The Fujis go from gen 1 to gen 3. Not sure when they introduced their film but I'd bet it wasn't too long after Kodak...a year tops I'd guess. Also I will have expected Fuji to have bailed out a bit sooner then kodak did but I'm not sure when...my best guess would be early to mid 90s. The higher the generation number with fuji the better but overall they trend worse then both Kodak and 3M. I'd avoid these for purchase now. 3M goes from gen 1 to 3 and much of what I said for fuji would be the same but I expect they got in a bit later. The higher the number the better the condition of unshot disc film. 3Ms generally turn out pretty well yet....that is with some consideration for their vintage. Buy as high of generation number as you can. Lastly is Konica. They too had generation numbers from 1 to 3. These are for the most part all in pretty miserable shape if still unexposed. I'd aviod these even more so then the Fujis. Worthy of note....expired film looses sensitivity to light....the older the film the brighter the light you might want to shoot in. There are only three places worth considering sending your disc film to for development in North America. They are Dwaynes Fast and inexpensive. No special handling - if your film is in good shape so will the prints. There is no digital step so there is no digital improvements to the images. Garbage in garbage out. You won't beat the price and how amazingly fast you get the film back. Film Rescue Developed in high contrast AN-6 aerial film developer, scanned, quick digital fix-up and uploaded for preview so customer can choose and pay for only the pics they want. No charge if film is blank. Decent price but they operate in a 30 to 40 day cycle. Just miss the start of a cycle and it could take as long 9 weeks to get the online preview. Hit the beginning though the preview can be as fast as 3 weeks. Rapid Photo More expensive then the other two options but comes with all images regardless. Seem to be good honest folks trying to do things right. Includes cd and prints and modified developer to improve condition of film. Likely faster then Film Rescue to actually have the product back in your hands. Sorry as I write these I must admit that I'm biased as one of the above companies is mine...I did my best though. Have fun!
