COVID-19 Vacinations

Borough President Gale Brewer has announced an amazing team of volunteers who have created, an all-in-one website that aggregates all available vaccine appointments at City, State, and private sites by pinging those sites electronically and by phone every few minutes. Appointments are still scarce, but this is an incredible up to the minute resource.

52 Bond St featured in Daytonian in Manhattan 

Around 1807 Bond Street was laid out, but it would not be until around 1812 that the first house appeared.  Before mid-century it would boast 60 high-end houses which rivaled and surpassed the grandest homes on Broadway, St. John's Park and Lafayette Place.  Sturges S. Dunham, writing in Valentine’s Manual of Old New-York in 1907, noted “Bond Street was one of the best known streets in the city and none stood higher in favor as a place of residence.”
...The brick-faced house was an early example of the Greek Revival style on the street lined mostly with Federal style residences.
