A Midsummer Night's Dream . . . and Daylight Nightmare: the Steinway Mansion, July 29 and 30, in the Borough of Shame, Queens 2015.


       Queens architect Gerald Caliendo's designed warehouses continually being constructed during the day at the Steinway Mansion Historical Heritage site as a rare "blue" July full moon observes the site's serenity at night.

        For those who came in late, architect  Caliendo is also the President of the Board of Directors of the King Manor Association in Jamaica dedicated to preserving the architectural and historical legacy of Rufus King, a signer of the US Constitution, Minister to Britain, and US Senator.

         Ironically, many contend that Gerald Caliendo was not so inclined to preserve the architectural and historical legacy of William Steinway. a successful example of American immigrant entrepreneurship, automotive innovation, and New York City civic-mindedness.

         Instead, we get this.  Here in our Borough of Shame.  Melinda Katz is the name of the individual who is the Borough's  President.

The Steinway Mansion Site: Gone With The Wind (05:58) . . . And A Strange Unexplained Phenomenon [see captions below].


video

Exclusive!
At 02:59. For only one brief second, an eerie unexplained-for object drops out of the tree area at the extreme far left center of the frame and then quickly disappears.  Paranormal activity at the Steinway site?  What...or who?




For your consideration: the unexplained entity.  (Still imagery from above video.)

The Most Beautiful Building In Queens, July 19, 2015. The Nobility of the Steinway Mansion Amidst the Wasteland of Warehouse Construction.

Site of the Caliendo-designed warehouses.

Gerald Caliendo, Architect and President of the Board of Directors of the King Manor Museum Association . . .
. . .  and Queens warehouse designer.

A feather in his cap?


The grand entrance through the Mansion gate and view of the Great Lawn -  what countless historical persons viewed as they visited the Steinway family in the late 19th century - what's left of it.

The Valley of the Caliendo Warehouses.

The most beautiful building in Queens.  Built during the Presidency of James Buchanan 3 years (1858) before the start of the American Civil War.
