Things to do in Jamaica

    King Manor Museum King Manor Museum Jamaica, Queens, New York
    The Rufus King museum in Jamaica, Queens, New York has the magnificent King Manor as its centerpiece, set on an 11 acre historic park, that was owned by Rufus King, one of the signers of the Constitution, who had this house constructed in the 18th century. Rufus purchased an existing farm in 1805 that included an 18th century Dutch style house with attached Long Island style "half house". Then, a year, after moving in, he would add a kitchen to the back of the house and four years later add a Federal dining room and two bedrooms, making it look more like a Georgian style house. Rufus had been born in Maine in 1755, the son a of a rich merchant, and graduated at the top of his class from Harvard in 1777, studying law before the Revolutionary War started, and once it was done, he would enter a marvelous career in public service, getting to be a member of the Continental Congress, as well as a framer and signer of the Constitution, and one of the first two ambassadors to Great Britain under Presidents Washington, Adams and Jefferson. He would run for President, but lose, and be the last Federalist to run from that party, losing to James Madison in 1816. His oldest son, John Also King, would have a great career in public service becoming a congressman and governor of New York. Rufus would live in the manor, with his wife, Mary and their five children, keeping it a working farm, and after his passing in 1827, his son John, would live in the house and add a Greek revival exterior, with excellent details, like the portico and entry. The manor would remain in the King family until 1896, when it would be bought by the village of Jamaica, and two years later transferred to the city. After a major renovation, reinterpretation and museum installation, the museum would be opened to the public for touring in 1994. There are numerous interactive exhibits that describe the story of Jamaica village and the community that lived here during the early 1800s. Every room has been meticulously maintained and filled with period antiquities to make it as if it had just been moved into by the Kings. Although he would be in and out of politics after the War of 1812, he would stand in front of the Congress and debate the Missouri Compromise; stating, "I have yet to learn that one man can make a slave of another. If one man cannot do so, no number of individuals can have any better right to do it." Rufus had planned on settling down and enjoying his retirement, but it seemed as if the country was beckoning to him constantly. He would be buried next to his wife, Mary at the Grace Episcopal Church, that is located just a block from his former home.

    Queens Zoo NY Zoological SocietyQueens Zoo Queens, New York
    The Queens Zoo sits on five acres in Queens, New York, in Flushing Meadows at Corona Park, and run by the Wildlife Conservation Society in a partnership with the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, built on the former site of the 1964 New York World's Fair. Their aviary is inside a geodesic dome, that was designed for the 1964 World's Fair by Buckminster Fuller, and is now part of an integrated system of four zoos and one aquarium that is run by the WCS and accredited by the AZA. It originally opened in 1968 as the Flushing Meadows Zoo, but as the years passed would be forced to shut down for an extensive renovation that would take four years and $16 million, and reopen in 1992. The zoo is home to native animals from the Americas, and it is the only zoo in the group that exhibits spectacled bears. It also houses owls, lynx, alligators, bald eagle, California sea lions, cougars, Roosevelt elk, sandhill cranes, pudu, thick-billed parrots, coyotes, the aforementioned aviary and a marvelous petting zoo that is filled with domestic animals. The Wildlife Conservation Society began in 1895 as the New York Zoological Society in 1895 and is today based at the Bronx Zoo. Today, the society manages 200 million acres of protected lands across the globe, that has more than 500 field conservation projects in 60 countries and 200 scientists on their staff. Their stated mission is to save wildlife, as well as wild lands using careful science, education, management of the world's biggest system of urban wildlife parks and international conservation. Hopefully, these actions will eventually change the attitudes of people to nature and help them to understand wildlife and humans needing to live in continued interaction locally and globally. The society is committed to this activity because they believe that it has become essential to the integrity of our planet. Mammals living at the zoo include the Andean bear, puma, pronghorn, North American porcupine, California sea lion and the American bison. Some of the more exciting exhibits include the aviary, sea lion pool, the petting zoo and its domestic animals, the great plains, the woodland trail, waterfowl marsh and South American trail. This zoo is expanding its horizons by continuously trying to further educate the public with numerous programs provided at the zoo that include; distance learning, programs and tours, professional development, school programs and educators.

    Sagamore Hill National Historic Site Sagamore Hill National Historic Site Cove Neck, New York
    Sagamore Hill in Cove Neck, New York, on Long Island, had been the home of President Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th President of the United States, from 1885 until his passing in 1919. It sits on a small hill at the end of Cove Neck, and includes the Theodore Roosevelt Museum; and would receive its name from the title of a chief of an Indian tribe. Teddy had always been a native of New York, spending many summers with his family in the Oyster Bay area, and in 1880, at the young age of 22, he would buy 155 acres of land for $30,000 on Cove Neck, which is a small peninsula about 2 miles northeast of Oyster Bay village, and in 1881, his uncle, James A. Roosevelt would design his estate house a few hundred yards for the Sagamore Hill property to the west. He would hire Lamb & Rich of New York to design a shingle-style Queen Anne house for that property, which ended up being a 22 room house that was finished in 1886 for $16,975. Teddy moved into the house in 1887, originally planning to name it Leeholm, after his wife, Alice Hathaway Lee Roosevelt, but, sadly, she passed away in 1885, and he would remarry in 1887; which caused him to change the name to Sagamore Hill. Teddy decided to enlarge the house with a huge room in 1905, that is now called the North Room and it would cost him another $19,000, so the house now contains 23 rooms. The estate would become the main residence of Teddy and Edith Roosevelt for the remainder of their lives. It would gain its proudest period when Teddy became president and it would become known as the Summer White House for seven summers, from 1902 until 1908; until Theodore Roosevelt passed on in January 1919. Congress would establish the Sagamore Hill National Historic Site in 1962 to preserve the estate and its beautiful original furnishings. In 1966, it would be added to the National Register of Historic Places, and is open for tours, as well as containing the Theodore Roosevelt Museum that chronicles the life and times of Teddy, and it is located in the Old Orchard building, which had been the old residence of Brigadier General Theodore Roosevelt Jr. and his family. Teddy would pass away at about 4 AM in the morning, in his sleep, on January 6th, when he was only sixty years old. There would be many dignitaries that came to his funeral, and one attending was Vice President Thomas Marshall that would comment, "death had to take him sleeping, for if Roosevelt had been awake, there would have been a fight." Kind of apropos since Teddy was a vibrant outdoorsman, filled with the zest of life and love of his beautiful country, he was always ready for a fight. One on Teddy's favorite and famous phrases was "speak softly and carry a big stick" and perhaps says it best. Teddy Roosevelt has consistently been called one of the finest and greatest Presidents of these United States and with his outstanding record, it is quite evident that he was.

    Walt Whitman Birthplace State Historic Site Walt Whitman Birthplace State Historical Site Jamaica, Queens, New York
    The Walt Whitman Birthplace State Historic Site is located near Jamaica, Queens, New York and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, preserving the birthplace of the famous American poet. Walt would be born in 1819, in a farmhouse constructed by his father in Huntington, New York on Long Island and began working as a printer, then schoolteacher, journalist, volunteer nurse during the Civil War and newspaper publisher. He would finally pen a book of poetry, called the Leaves of Grass, that would sell badly when it first was published, although the ensuing years would change that original perception and today it is considered to be one of the masterpieces of world literature. His museum's website states, "by the end of his life, Whitman had become the first American poet to achieve international acclaim. Today his poetry is available in every major language and inspires people world wide who find in Whitman the voice and vision of a truly international humanist."  The house would be renovated in 2001 and is considered to be a fine specimen of Long Island craftsmanship, and it is considered an American treasure as well. The site includes a marvelous interpretive center that contains over 100 portraits, manuscripts, letters and relics, and other resources include a gift shop, film area, bookstore and picnic area.

    Museum of the Moving ImageMuseum of the Moving Image Astoria, Queens, New York
    The Museum of Moving Image is the excellent media museum that sits in Astoria, Queens, New York, where the former Kaufman Astoria Studios had been located, originally opening in 1977 as the Astoria Motion Picture and Television Center Foundation, and then would reopen in 1988 as the American Museum of Moving Image, until 2008, when it would get an injection of $67 million to rejuvenate it, reopening again last month, January, 2011. The museum was created to expand the understanding and appreciation of the public to art, technique, history and technology of film, digital media and television by collecting, preserving and offering a marvelous access to the moving-image related relics through the use of multi-media displays and educational programming. These outstanding exhibits contain important audio/visual components that were developed to inspire an understanding of the history of the business and how it would evolve. The museum quite often has panel discussions about the venue of current movies at the center, and it is also home to one of the finest collections of video games and gaming hardware in the world, with attendance rising from just 60,000 in 2000 to 100,000 in 2007; which helped make the decision to renovate and rejuvenate. The museum would initially open after seven years of hard work and $15 million investments, in 1988, in the former East Coast home of Paramount Pictures, to become the first museum in the nation that is dedicated to the art, technology and history of video, film and television. The museum was considered to be very ultramodern in the standards of 1988, since it could provide 16mm, 35mm and 70mm and video formats, and would be only one of two in the city that had the ability to show nitrate prints, and had recreated numerous moments from TV and video history, as well as offering visitors the chance to watch TV in a special television lounge like the early days of television, which had to have been quite something for those that had never had the opportunity to watch television from the "old days", which was quite an experience, if anyone remembers that era. At first, everything was in black and white, on a small screen perhaps measuring 13 inches diagonally, shaped more like a oblong, not quite perfectly square nor round, but unique nonetheless; and to make it even more enjoyable, we had only two, maybe three and less frequently, four channels to watch, which included ABC, NBC and CBS, with local channels either showing their programming on the three major network channels or a fourth, if you were lucky. The picture would be snowy most of the time, with occasional bouts of clarity, although that would depend on the rabbit ears, what a name that was, but it was something quite different than the radio, since we could look at the faces of those voices we had heard for many years on the radio.

    Valentine-Varian HouseValentine-Varian House Bronx, New York
    The Valentine-Valerian House in the Bronx, New York, was constructed in 1758, when the dirt road out front would carry carriages along the Boston Post Road through the borough when it was still a large farmland area. It is the second oldest house in the borough, and sits magnificently inside a wrought-iron fence in the little neighborhood of Norwood in the Bronx, towards the north-central area of it. It is a stately two story fieldstone house that had been constructed by Isaac Valentine, a farmer and blacksmith that had purchased the land from the Dutch Reformed Church, and was located a block south across the Bainbridge Avenue area. In the Revolutionary War, the Valentines would be forced to vacate their beloved home, which would be occupied at various times by the British, Hessian and American soldiers. There were a few battles that would take place close to the house and it included one where cannons sat on a nearby hilltop bombarding the troops that were coming into the region, although it would miraculously survive without any damage to it. The Valentine family would return after the war was over, and live prosperously until 1792, when they decided to sell the estate to Isaac Varian, a wealthy butcher and farmer. The Varian family would live there for the next three generations, while one of Isaac's sons named Isaac, would become mayor of the city from 1839 until 1841. Unfortunately it would have to sold at auction in 1905, and William F. Beller would then purchase it. William C. Beller would donate the property to the Bronx County Historical Society in 1965, where it would be moved diagonally across the street to where it proudly rests today. The lovely home is called Georgian vernacular, with evenly installed windows and identical chimneys at each end. On the interior, the rooms are identical as well across from each other from the central hallway, with many areas of the home's flooring still retaining their original floorboards, with hand-forged nails and hand made mortar. The house has deep-set splayed windows in the house that had been designed to let in the light and keep out the colder weather. It is now the home of the Museum of Bronx History, with two rooms housing exhibitions and the front parlor containing a permanent exhibit about the development of the region, from the Indian and Dutch eras through the revolution. There is a marvelous herb garden located on the grounds as well as outstanding plantings, an outdoor sitting area and the Bronx River Soldier monument.
