Claire's Tumblr

I'm a geek, musician, student, writer, reader, and scribbler.

This tumblr is a mad collection of my art, my life, my hopeful-travels, and all of the wonderfully nerdy things therein!

Say hello! I promise, I don't bite, and I enjoy making new friends whenever I can!

(I don't automatically follow back, but I think you're all fantastic!)

In Focus: Historic Photos From the NYC Municipal Archives

The New York City Municipal Archives just released a database of over 870,000 photos from its collection of more than 2.2 million images of New York throughout the 20th century. Their subjects include daily life, construction, crime, city business, aerial photographs, and more. Alan Taylor spent hours lost in these amazing photos, and gathered this group together to give you just a glimpse of what’s been made available from this remarkable collection.

Everyone one of these — every single one — is fantastic.

Aerial View, New York City

Watching the pace and flow of New York City from above is amazing. The constant stream of yellow taxis lining the avenues, the waves of pedestrians hurriedly crossing with the change of traffic signals, little figures disappearing into and emerging from the subway stations, the chorus of honking horns and sirens. It’s all so rhythmic and strangely soothing to watch. It makes me feel incredibly small.

Muslims to NYPD: ‘Respect us, we will respect you’

Hundreds of Muslims prayed in a lower Manhattan park and marched to New York Police headquarters Friday to protest a decade of police infiltrating mosques and spying on Muslim neighborhoods.

Bundled in winter clothes, men and women knelt as the call to prayer echoed off the cold stone of government buildings. 

“Being Muslim does not negate our nationality,” Imam Talib Abdur-Rashid told the crowd of about 500 gathered in Foley Square, not far from City Hall and local courthouses. “We are unapologetically Muslim and uncompromisingly American.” (source)
