Behind closed doors of Ellis Island Hospital

Posted on Jun 24th 2017

The Ellis Island Immigrant Hospital has been abandoned and closed to the public since the late 1950s. Few decades later, the hospital was declared an endangered historical site and work has been done to try and preserve the buildings.

Currently standing in the state of rested decay the hospital is still closed off to the public, however, one can sign up to the exclusive hard hat tours organized by Untapped Cities and get a glimpse behind the closed doors. During the tour the attendees get to explore the over 100 year old laundry building, autopsy room, infections disease ward and walk the hallways of what used the be state of the art hospital of its time.

The Ellis Island Hospital was operational from 1902 until 1930s and had the lowest mortality rate. The patients had received top-class treatment. The hospital played an important role in screening the immigrants to prevent epidemics on the American soil.

What is it like to be a consultant

Posted on Jun 20th 2017

I always find it a challenge answering the simplest of questions what is it that I do for a living. I decided to do a little documentary about what is it like to be a Consultant. Looking at this video, I’m not sure it still truly answers how am I able to make a living while travelling and going out so much, but guess what it’s part of the job.

I can say that what I do is not for the faintest, it requires being very adaptable, being able to deal with crazy schedules and dealing with a heck lot of pressure. Not to mention being able to run cross airport in less then 10min to catch the plane, cause once those doors are closed, they ARE closed! As tough as it is, I would not want any other job. It is by living this hectic lifestyle, that you truly start appreciating what you have and who you have in your life and truly living in the moment.

Hope you enjoy watching this, as much as I enjoyed making this. Here is 2 months of my life in under 4 minutes.

Gotham City PD on Patrol

The next season of Gotham is being shot in Brooklyn. While walking around Williamsburg, unsuspected pedestrians could come about some interesting props. Like this Gotham City Police Department car casually parked on the street.

Holocaust Memorial Miami

Posted on Oct 10th 2016

The Holocaust Memorial in Miami is one of the most beautiful memorials. The Memorial was opened on Sunday, February 4, 1990, but not without challenges. Many have opposed it when it was first proposed. The memorial is spanning several blocks with the physical address 1933-1945 Meridian Avenue. The street numbers coincidentally match the years of the Nazi regime and its war against the Jews.

Cleveland, home of Superman

Posted on Oct 03rd 2016

Alright, Superman is not from Cleveland, he’s from planet Krypton, however the creators of the character are. Writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster were growing up in Cleveland, OH, when in 1930s they created Superman.

One of the fun reminders of that fact, is the permanent exhibit at the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, debuted in 2012. It is located in the baggage area, near door 6.

The exhibit depicts a skyline of Cleveland on the back wall, which serves as a map to key locations in the creators lives. The talk bubbles provide commentary on the relevance of each location.
