Rock the House. Although New York City is known around the world for its manmade wonders, a question that one asks themselves is how Manhattan came to be, and the answer is Bedrock. Bedrock is a solid rock below the loose surface of a material. It's a solid rock that makes up the earth's crust, it's found underneath surface deposits of soil. It is the solid rock beneath loose deposits like soil or alluvium, and is usually unweathered. Their are also three processes by which bedrock is formed. Igneous bedrock formation when lave solidifies. Sedimentary bedrock which forms when layers and layers of sediments compress and the deepest layer turns into solid sheets, and finally Metamorphic bedrocks which are formed when either sedimentary or igneous rock layers change as a result of environmental factors like extreme pressure or heat. The Bedrock that is found in New York City ranges from1.1 billion-190 million years old. As Bedrock as an anchor the island of Manhattan was build on three strata which is a layer of material that is naturally or artificially formed often formed one upon another known as Manhattan Schist, Inwood Marble and Fordham Gneiss. Inwood Marble is a marble that is found by a majority of rivers such as Harlem and the East. Fordham Gneiss came first and was formed 1.1 billion years ago in the pre- Cambria era. This was an era were the continent of North America layer in a barrow basin beneath the sea which was shallow. Sand and Silt had been accumulating in the basin forming the sedimentary rock. When a continental shirt occurred a landmass collided with North America and hit the sedimentary rock upward and formed a mountain range. The reaction from the collision and high pressure caused the rock to recrystallize and formed a black and white metamorphic rock which is what we see today. The Fordham Gneiss is found along the west side in Riverdale, and along the east side in Fordham, and north into Van Cortlandt Park. Gneiss is also found on Roosevelt Island, emerging from the East River, and in Long Island City, and Queens. Then came the Schist which was formed about 450 years ago, which means that its the oldest of New York's bedrocks after Fordham Gneiss.The Schist is known in Manhattan's as it's spine because it dips abruptly several hundred feet, below group at the Washington Square and then an ascent begins at Chamber Street, "these dips and rises account for the gap between “midtown” and “downtown” in the Manhattan skyline.

42nd street, in New York City. I chose Times Square because it is world famous, and there is a wealth of people and interactions to observe at the “crossroads of the world”. I visited Times Square about 100+ times throughout my time here in school attending Globe Institute of Technology, each visit consisting of about one-two hours. I mainly stayed at 42nd between Broadway, 7th and 8th avenues. I mainly walked around seeing sites, because im not from New York City and alot of this is new to me. If i…

There was a time not too long ago when New York was the nation's literary capital, when would-be writers abandoned the provinces for the thrill of living where Fitzgerald and Hemingway lived, walking the streets that Howells and Wharton walked, drinking where Cummings and Dos Passos drank, eating where Thurbur and White ate. Those were the days when one took up residence in Greenwich Village to rub shoulders with the intelligentsia, establish a reputation, perhaps break into print. It was like Paris…

in New York. “Stop and Frisk” means where the cops usually stops a person if they feel suspicious about them and even search through their body without warrant because of their appearance. “Stop and Frisk” can be helpful at some times, but not most of the time and in some cases it has been believed to be used by high authorities to exploit the minorities. There has been many cases where random people have been stopped and been pressured by cops to get searched by force. Especially here in New York…
