Brooklyn Landmarks – The Eagle Has Returned Again

After a few years’ absence, the Brooklyn’s most iconic icon is back. The Flatbush Avenue Historic District recently celebrated the return of its heralded logo, which was conveniently misplaced a few years back by an indignant city official. The eagle, which once served as an identifier for the neighborhood in which it sits atop a 16-story liberty pole, has been restored by bronze sculptor Charles Krauel in commemoration of its unveiling 90 years ago on May 10th, 1926. The eagle, which can be found on Flatbush’s roof at 28-36 Flatbush Ave., was created by sculptor Louis Rubel, and was meant to represent “the spirit of hope and farsightedness needed to build a new way of life,” according to a 1926 press release. The eagle was lost during Hurricane Sandy in 2012, but it was later found in an abandoned city maintenance warehouse. The eagle is now on permanent display in the Brooklyn Historical Society’s Great Hall of Kings County. “For us, it was an honor and a privilege to restore the eagle,” said Brooklyn Historical Society senior curator Jessica Molitierni. “We were so happy that it was found again and that everyone could share in the city’s pride for bringing it back, even though it was damaged. It’s the process of revealing that full glory and those beautiful details that makes restoration so special.”

Brooklyn Landmarks are Still Standing! A New Logo is Finally Being Designed and Created

It’s finally happening! After three years of talks, a celebrated Brooklyn landmark is finally getting its new logo designed and cast in bronze. The Flatbush Avenue Historic District’s logo was lost during Hurricane Sandy in 2012, and since then the landmark has been without an iconic identifier. However, now that the city has finally picked up the pace of restoration in the area, a new logo is indeed on the way. “I was told it was in some warehouse somewhere and those are not even archives,” said sculptor Charles Krauel “It’s stuck with my office and I don’t have access to it so by the time I get there they’re gone.” The eagle has been re-cast and will be unveiled sometime this spring.

Did the Design of a New Brooklyn Landmark Symbol Change or Do I Really Like It So Much?

After years of not liking the Flatbush Avenue Historic District’s iconic logo, I’m back on board now that a new one has been designed. The new design features a phoenix, which is being cast in bronze and will serve as the official identifier for the Brooklyn landmark. Designed by sculptor Charles Krauel, actress Cynthia Nixon is spearheading the effort to get the new eagle cast in bronze, so you know it has to have a good deal of meaning. Regardless of my opinion of the new logo, I’m excited that it’s finally happening.

Brooklyn and Manhattan Buildings Are Still Standing but the Name has Been Changed to “The Brand” [Jewelry designer freelance blog | Cutie

Recently, a jewelry designer jumped on my blog, looking for inspiration for a custom piece he was working on. After reading an article about the newly named “Brooklyn” and the “Manhattan” in the New York Times I decided to experiment with those names in my designs. If you have an idea or an opinion about these beautiful buildings give me a shout and if you like what you see click on my designer’s page and buy something from his blog. Is the name of the Brooklyn and Manhattan building’s a problem? The new logo has been created and cast in bronze, so I don’t see how those names are a problem. Both buildings will continue to be built by Kushner Companies, so what’s the problem? So that’s why I am calling today’s post “Brooklyn Brand” and my jewelry is called “Manhattan Blend”
Brooklyn Brand
I don’t know if you have noticed but a lot of people are upset about the new name for these buildings. One woman said: “It is forcing me to say something about this terrible change and apologize for my landlord. I want to write him a letter and say, “I apologize for Kushner. He is not a nice man.””
So far, I have received only few messages about my designs but they are all good. Here’s what one person said: “Thank you so much Ma’am! I have been looking for this everywhere and they are beautiful. Thank you again”
