The museum would be in the former Peerless Photo, Inc. site which was contaminated and mitigated of photo-chemicals. I’m not sure the tower site was kept, the base was shown in the press to be bulldozed when so cleaned or was in the past. The building was designed by the famous architect, Stanford White, who lived not very far away, nearby Stony Brook having built there a “world’s tallest”(?) windmill. He was a victim of gun violence and a moment of insanity. You might think given the breadth of White’s influence, White House, Washington Square Arch, Municipal building, to name a few, that the Tesla lab would be preserved for that additional historical significance. And it’s nearby the Brookhaven National Laboratory!
Safe ports…dawn and dusk vision…”gated” lasers just might in development. Dark NEO’s full of minerals (Near Earth Orbit). Moon distance already being measured with them. “Laser propulsion” near the speed of light. We measure it to record properties, build roads, etc., infrared (visible lasers for tunnels) “tacheometers” or “total stations” are now under $4000. Very accurate.
"Chuck" Scarborough of WNBC in NYC said a day or two before the 9/11 ceremony, that instead of a day of remembrance perhaps it should remain a day of "infamy". It makes sense to apply it so, though I think it also requires we remember that there may be other information we need to know. In regards to the attack on Pearl Harbor the honorable Senator from Arkansas, Hattie Ophelia Wyatt Caraway, thought too "gut reaction", decided not to vote for the declaration of war after the attack, so stating in her speech, which required some research and "archaeology" to retrieve in the late 1980s. I looked at a researcher’s work at The Mainichi Daily News, the Japanese press, him or her, not Japanese, who was surprised how little research was done by both countries in regards to the time immediately preceding that WWII "infamy". In that research a translation of a "declaration of war" was never transcribed as the Japanese transcribers were at a funeral "outside the beltway" on an unusually warm December day and the pastor’s eulogy went on for over two hours, the research asserts. I imagine therefore some other history might have occurred, long story short. In any case, we need better language translations, I’m given to understand we still have less than the digits on our hands for Arabic in the FBI.

Updates: 8/4/2011 Second Piece of Historic Ship Discovered at WTC Site Good coverage w/ slideshow
8/7/11 update: It was the late 1970s, with Ed Johanneman, MA I visited to look at a reported ship in the excavations for the foundation of WTC Building #7. We were told we couldn’t, I’m not clear the reason (blasting?). It was reported there was one in one of the WTC tower excavations, 6 in the AT+T building and one is actually visible in the basement of one of the buildings in the South Street Seaport now Historic District once to be the site of the World Trade Center. Mr. Asadorian of the Queens Public Library was an avid avocation list for NYC archaeology, and the source.

"Secrets of New York" will air some my YouTube "Ronson Ship" August 9 in "Waterfront" then at NYC VOD http://alturl.com/4hqtt – Twitter
Certainly. I feel a little odd since I was in charge at some point of photographing parts of the ship and the other coverage went lacking on my part, so I just as you see, have a few photos I’ve scanned. Another source would be Warren Reiss who with Sheli O. Smith ran the Ronson Ship excavation. You see him in one of the photos inside the ship hulk photos I ‘d taken. He recently was a consultant on the WTC ship found in the excavations of the new building after the 9/11 WTC debacle.
Another source of images might be the Odyssey, Inc. ship and "treasure" salvors who paid the crew of archaeologists working on emptying out the Ronson Ship $0.25 to be in their filming. They had rented a motorized scaffold and took what I imagine to be some wonderful overhead photos and film of the effort, in the later stages, where what was once thought a buried wharf, a ship hulk used in the island filling.
Anything you might do to credit me would be fine, and of course I would look forward to seeing anything in regards to it. Canary Wharf in London was having a "similar" event, "Save the Viking wharf" in the development there as I recall. The construction project came in ahead of schedule, working as we were in winter until the first week of March in one of the last remaining parking lots now a very large office building with an extra floor, bending the zoning laws a bit in return for the archaeology, I have read in the press.
And in closing, I love your shows.

Tried adding two photos together with Fusion 2.0 (freeware on majorgeeks.com) and the result looks better than the original. Program does HDR also. President George H. W. Bush once stopped here to disembark from the M.S. Mount Washington when he was Vice President under then President Ronald Reagan, who was going in for surgery on a health issue. He left in a Cadillac after asking for a moment of silence from the upper deck of the largest ship on the largest NH lake, Winnipesaukee (“Smile of the Great Spirit”) “discovered” by the Pilgrims at todays Weirs Beach.
