    23. Just read with great interest the article regarding Hart Island [Sept. 20, 2014] – “Buried from the public: Hart Island, New York”. First, I’m thrilled that at long last the Island is receiving recognition and steps are being taken for its resurrection – I thank you for your in-depth reporting. Second, and most disturbing to me: why is it no one from the press wants to speak to me regarding Hart Island and my connection, or worse yet, why is it no one knows the name John S. Turner, my brother, an Honorably Discharged Air Force Veteran whose untimely and suspicous death, and hasty burial on Hart Island, served as the nudge for City Council Officials to explore Hart Island for the first time in 20 years, some Members who had never even heard of the Island.? After all, it was my dogged pursuit of Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley, and our visit to Hart Island in November 2011, that lit the fire under her to bring change for the Island. My beloved brother, John, who’s been buried there since 1972, was the reason for my persistence and if it weren’t for his story, Councilwoman Crowley would not have been so moved to do something. And still my brother, or his story, is nowhere to be read. And since when is the media [apparently]dictated by one person? I am not a person with clout nor do I have a recognizable “name”, I don’t know the right people, I can’t afford lawyers to represent me or John’s memory. I’m just a sister of a brother who did not deserve to go out the way he did and does not deserve to be continously ignored. It was his story, told through me, that commanded a meeting with City Council members in November 2011, as well as with Department of Corrections personnel, including Riker’s Warden Gregory McLaughlin. And why is it that the DOC is not being held accountable for losing my brother – shoddy record keeping took care of that – so there is no way I can even have a bone so I may give him a proper military burial? There are many many stories of the Island and its inhabitants, and there ARE those who are fighting for the Island, for their loved one, and it has nothing to do with record keeping. It has to do with human decency, respect and NYC history. Where are those stories? Breaks my heart a million times over that no one knows about my brother John and what HE, alone, did for this Island – his final unchosen resting place – thus far. Thank you for your time.

      • Julie, thanks for the comment. I certainly understand your concerns and frustrations with the search for your brother and his apparent lack of legacy within the context of that story. Our post about Hart Island was a historical account of the island, not meant to be a comprehensive biography of the battle with NYC. In that regard, there is a lot of information I “left out” in that issue. That is another story unto itself and something others have covered exhaustively already on the Internet.

        But I wish you luck on your search and will leave your comments up for others searching on the topic to uncover. I hope you find peace on the matter with your brother John, good luck. Thanks for stopping by.

    24. Could anyone envision Witley Court restored back to it former glory as a 5-Star Hotel and museum? Afterall, Castle Howard suffered a similar fire damage that was even worse than Witley Court. And yet, Castle Howard is full re-roof and being restored back to it former glory. Why can’t Witley Court follow in Castle Howard’s footsteps? I would love to see Witley Court serve as a monument to Sir Winston Spensor-Churchill and his family, which would be linked to Blenheim Palace.

        Life has been keeping us busy for a bit, but truth be told I have been working with several photographers on a couple of stories that are currently in progress at various stages – things are just moving slower at the moment. Thanks for sticking around and checking on us, means a lot. More coming soon, hopefully before the end of this month (fingers crossed). Cheers, and thanks for the comment!

    27. Hey there, I’m a long time reader. I can’t even recall how I randomly came across your blog in the past, however I thought it would be cool if you did some simple story boarding for a podcast. These are really interesting articles that relate to modern architecture and the articles are very well written.

    28. Love your posts! History is so important, especially now when history is being erased! Keep researching and posting THIS history! Thanks so much!
