#Repost @kupferbergcenter with @get_repost ・・・ This is a #throwbackthursday post for the books. A dedication ceremony was held at Colden Center (now known as Colden Auditorium) circa 1961 with member of the Board of Higher Education John J. Morris (far left) and the first Chancellor of CUNY John Everett (middle) in attendance among other local prominent figures. This photo was taken in front of The Queens College Theatre, which was later renamed Goldstein Theatre. #throwback #ghostofqueenspast #queenscollege #tbt #qc #coldencenter #kupferbergcenter #KCA #queens #queensny #queensnyc #oldnyc #nyc #igersofnyc #cuny
#Repost @kupferbergcenter ・・・ On March 8, 1992, the Aaron Copland School of Music held an inauguration concert for their new concert hall. On this special occasion, the visually stunning venue welcomed acclaimed performers, such as Thomas Hampson, star of the @metopera ; Ronald Roseman, internationally renowned soloist, teacher, recording artist, and professor at Queens College; and QC's Distinguished Professor and respected composer Thea Musgrave, among others. #ThrowbackThursday #TBT #QueensCollege #QC #KCA #KupferbergCenter #queensny #cuny #theghostofqueenspast #nyc #oldnyc #newyorker #newyorkcity #newyork #igersofnyc #queens

RIP to a a NYC Hero - Veteran FDNY firefighter was killed in a raging five-alarm fire on a Harlem film set Thursday night, the FDNY said. Firefighter Michael Davidson, 37, was the nozzle man, the first to brave the flames when his company, Engine 69, arrived at the scene on St. Nicholas Ave. at W. 149th St. at 10:50 p.m., Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro said at Harlem Hospital early Friday. Davidson, a 15-year veteran, got separated from his fellow smoke eaters as they backed out of the fire in the building’s cellar, Nigro said. When firefighters found him, Davidson was unconscious. Despite the best efforts of his co-workers and paramedics, he died at Harlem Hospital at 12:16 a.m. #theghostofqueenspast #fdny #firefighter #thinredline #hero #heros #michaeldavidson #engine69 #fdnyengine #firefighters #fallenheroes #nyc #ny #newyork #newyorker #newyorkcity
