The Eldridge Street Synagogue
Here’s what the Untapped staff is reading in the HQ today:
- Historian recounts Nazi presence in 1930s Riverdale [NorthJersey.com]: Were there “Nazis in Riverdale?” Yes – said local historian Tom Riley. During his popular historical presentation at the Riverdale library, Riley talked of the Nazis at Camp Bergwald and Federal Hill.
- New Museum Exhibit Will Explore 300 Years Of Tattooing In New York City [Forbes]: A new exhibition at the New-York Historical Society will examine three centuries of tattooing in New York, including the city’s central role in the development of modern tattooing and the successive waves of trend and taboo surrounding the practice.
- Sohei Nishino Melds Maps and Photos Into Fabulous Memories of Great Cities [Wired]: Sohei Nishino’s large scale photomontages resemble maps of the world’s great cities. Paris. New York. Hong Kong. Get closer, and they burst with unexpected scales, moments, and juxtapositions. Landmarks like the the Brandenberg Gate or Golden Gate Bridge stand out in a mosaic of images. A constellation of satellite dishes denotes a neighborhood in Istanbul, boisterous dancing crowds represent the streets of Havana, pixelated water and boats show the Huangpu River in Shanghai.
