"Veterans Field was originally a private park established for the lesiure of Sanford and Son (later known as Bigelow-Sanford), carpet and rug manufacturers.
After the company relocated its operations away from Amsterdam in the mid 1950s, the company donated the land to the City of Amsterdam, which renamed the park Veterans Field."

Hospital where Rick wakes from a coma ("The Walking Dead")
Why isn't "Atlanta Mission" the title of this map? I can go there today, can't I, to the Atlanta Mission? People worked there yesterday, they will be there next week and next month. But the building was featured in the TV show for what, 8 or 9 minutes?
There are tens of thousands of actual named places where TV shows and movies have been filmed . . . should each of those maps have the Show/Movie Name & Scene in the title? Perhaps the Brooklyn Bridge map should be renamed with...

Anchorage Football Stadium
Football's just not a big sport in Alaska, America version or the real version. It gets too cold too early, and too dark. Northern latitudes just aren't conducive to after-school practices and games when the temperature is at freezing or way below. Can't play during the summer -- that's baseball season! Low populations and long distances doesn't help either. In places they do try to live "regular" American, football-loving lives and this stadium is evidence of that.

Dogwood Hill School
Bird's Eye Views takes me right back to 8, 9, 10 years old going to school here, playing on the playgrounds, getting in trouble, going to the principal's office, playing nerf football before school on the street by the back path, all that good stuff. And then years later getting my Subaru stuck in the snow on the lower playground, driving where I shouldn't've been. Ah yeah, good times.

Like lots of others, I've explored every part of this property. The old pavilion can easily be seen to the northeast. It's pretty frickin' big, way echoey inside with lots of graffiti.
A lot of old postcard scenes can be found on the interweb showing Pleasureland in its heyday. The next door neighbor Muller's Park survived until the late 80's but Pleasureland closed in the late 60's, I think, and has just sat abandoned to this day.

Doty Road Bridge over the Ramapo River
Even though Oakland is a small town, this bridge is not in the part of town I went to very much, actually hardly ever at all. Nevertheless, I've been across the old bridge on my bike, and under it in my dad's small motorboat, but was too young to know and appreciate the historicity of it.
And I swear right by the bridge, right by the river, there once was a semi-slimy tavern that was a good place to get a case of beer after all the liquor stores closed (since liquor stores...

I think my dad used to get our cars fixed here when I was a kid. It's on the edge of town so I hardly ever went there. But going from Oakland to Pompton Lakes or skiing up in Vernon, it was part of the drive.

Two buildings to the direct west??? Ummm? To the Southwest perhaps? They kinda do look like bomber planes but was that intentional? Or just using imagination? While the middle portion looks like a traditional plane, the outer wings kinda give the design a TIE fighter sort of look. If they wanted to give the appearance of bombers attacking the Nazis, why put the TIE fighter wings on?

"Property of the Hess Estate Which Has Never Been Dedicated for Public Purposes."
Doesn't "stubborn" have a negative connotation? I'd call it a determined standoff. No human being should ever have to give up land he rightfully owns, especially when government "condemns" buildings that are probably perfectly fine. "This nail is out of place, this molding is an inch too short" is not reason to condemn but government will use such tactics to get what they want.

I can't believe that's the body of '56 Caddy Eldorado. I'm not as knowledgeable about cars as I once was and I immediately did not question whether it could be a Cadillac because some people would give their first-born child for that! A plain old Chevy okay, but who in their right mind would do that to a Cadillac?! Also the tailfins on the Series 62 and Deville Caddys are different than the Eldorado which is very close to that of a Chevy.

I thought from the start that the two bigger tracks were go-kart and bmx. But the description for Sun Valley Motocross was three size tracks. So I thought maybe the BMX looking one is actually motocross and the tiny one is for the youngest kids. Or maybe the biggest one is for the youngest kids with lots of room for them to more easily maneuver and fall down and not get run over. I dunno.

Those terms were acceptable once within medical circles and even in society as a whole; they were acceptable even in Evangelical circles for it was men of God who approved using the word "Idiot" in 1892. Ugly words and terms (and worse -- ideas of man) are a real part of the past. Yes, they would be offensive if used today but to pretend those terms didn't once exist would be wrong.
