Typical of the french really. I think it's a nice gesture. There's no such thing as a nice gesture from a foreign country. The whole idea of the statue feels to me like some kind of trojan horse. It's not likely that hundreds of frenchmen are gonna come pouring out of it and take over the country but that he doesn't laugh at your job don't foreign countries the right to tell us about liberty. We're the ones who just fought a war over and look around renovation. And the industry's the best in the world. I still think it's a lovely image and i liked it.

"Jim knew the stakes from the moment. Bath House. John Inky Dank had called. They had put their faith in him giving him an opportunity to be more than just a two bit pimp and now he had to show them that they hadn't made a mistake. He thought the local politicians had liked him because he was tactful and quick thinking the kind of guy who could make sure his people voted the right way but now jim saw things for what they were more than anything the Alderman's respected him for this his willingness to get his hands dirty to do what needed to be done. That was what made big Jim Different. Jim had been trusted to collect protection vs from the city's illegal brothels the price of protection had gone up and some people weren't happy about it. Particularly Georgie the meanest Madam in town. Jim didn't feel guilty about beating her. Perhaps the brass knuckles were a bit much but he had to send a message to every barmaid and madame around big Jim Cosimo had arrived and he had no intention of leaving. I'm how hard it and I'm kate.

We journey inside the ranks of Organized Crime Rings From Street gangs to mafiosos to understand how a kingpin or Queen Pin Rises to the top of the underworld and why they fall as we follow the lives of infamous crime bosses will explore how money and power change them and how it changed the community around them. This is our first episode on Jim. Cosimo one of America's first modern kingpins. This week we'll be exploring his rise from indigent immigrant to crime. Lord of Chicago's Red Light District. Next week we'll look at his fall from grace arrest and the lasting legacy of his empire. You can listen to. All of Park has shows wherever you listen to podcasts. And if you enjoy the show one of the best ways to help us to leave a five star review now let's dive into the life of Chicago's first notorious Vice Lord. Big Jim Cosimo. Jim COSIMO was a self made man. He had come from nothing and yet had risen to become. Chicago's most feared and respected crime. Lord everybody knew Damon Jim and not just for his jewelry and that flashy three piece suit. He always wore for every moment. Jim had spent as a beggar peddling newspapers on the street corner. He intended to more than make up for it now that he had money in his pocket. Jen Colosio wasn't a pimp. He may have begun his criminal career selling sex on the Chicago streets but he had worked long and hard to become something much more than that by nineteen fourteen. Jim just turned thirty six. He already controlled be directly or indirectly more than one hundred businesses in. Chicago's first ward the Red Light district. He owned gambling joints and opium parlors billiards halls and saloons. Some even whispered that he sold Italian national lottery tickets and ran an underground wine business. Jim was in the business of sin and business was booming estimates at the time had him clearing well over half a million a year which in today's dollars would equate to roughly twelve and a half million. Jim Rarely traveled anywhere. If not by uniform chauffeur his elegant jewelry it led many to start calling him. Diamond Jim a name. He more than willingly accepted. He had a reputation now and it was one. He looked forward to living up. Two years. Spent living in luxury. Had led jim to develop an affinity for the fine arts. One art in particular stood out as his favourite the opera. He came to every show sometimes buying up as many as thirty seats. He always brought an entourage. Sometimes it was just a few of his men and their wives other nights. It was the men and their girlfriends after every show. Jim was welcomed backstage. Every member of the Chicago. Opera Company recognized him. He invited the singers. And the Maestro over to his restaurant call a simos cafe. He knew they would come. They always did after the show. Jim Returned to the restaurant and poured himself a drink since its opening in nineteen. Ten COSIMO's cafe had quickly become one of Chicago's hottest nightspots politicians celebrities and wise guys alike all gathered there each night to enjoy the old school Italian cooking and lively entertainment but it was the after dinner activities that truly endeared cosimo's cafe to the Chicago elites gambling joints were dime a dozen but where else but coliseum ohs could an intrepid diner go upstairs and gamble until the wee hours of the morning with hardened criminals state senators and foreign actresses alike. One night at cosimo's cafe sometimes bag jim more than a week's worth of his brothels receipts and Jim knew he was really selling the same thing at either venue not just food or sex. He was selling something far. More important. An experience Jim saw little distinction between the customers at his brothels. And those who pulled cigars and gambled away thousands at his restaurant as far as he was concerned. The only real difference between the two was that you never had to pretend you cared whether the brothel patrons had enjoyed themselves and for Jim pretending to care was the worst part he had lived his life without conscience never stopping to consider who he was hurting along his way. This way of living had done him. Well it had been the factor that allowed him to grow from nothing into the Titan. He had become the story of Jim.

What's the History of the Statue of Liberty?
"The Statue of Liberty has become such a legendary representation of New York City and America itself. It's hard to imagine a time before it found a place in the skyline it all began in the eighteen sixties when French poet and Anti Slavery activist Eduard elaborate proposed the idea of a post civil war commemoration of America's America's newfound freedoms and democracy he believed France should give a great monument a gift to the United States to celebrate both the unions victory in the civil war and and the abolition of slavery the idea resonated with a young French sculptor named Frederick August Bartholdi who'd been experimenting with large-scale Works Bartholdi started hearted drafting designs and the original goal was to complete the ambitious artistic endeavor by eighteen seventy six to mark the centennial of the American Declaration of Independence The statue that she was set to represent the goodwill between America and France. There was a little financial snag though well a big financial snag in both participating nations to raise the necessary funds for construction French government introduced everything from public fees to a fundraising lottery in the United States held auctions and benefit beatrix events and Lazarus pens the new classes for the art and literary auction to help generate money for the pedestal while all this was taking place. Bartholdi recruited did an experienced engineer to help troubleshoot structural issues with the massive sculpture enter Alexander Gustave Eiffel the man responsible for another internationally recognized architectural wonder the Eiffel Tower together with Bartholdi. I will help designed the four hundred and fifty thousand pound structure. That's about two hundred thousand kilograms and specifically specifically had a hand in planning out the Iron Pylon and secondary skeletal framework. The Statue of Liberty was finally completed in France in July of eighteen eighty four and arrived in three hundred and fifty individual pieces packed in two hundred and fourteen crates in New York Harbor in June of eighteen eighty five ten years after her original. Oh projected debut the statue of Liberty became an official New York City icon and President Grover Cleveland oversaw the official dedication ceremony on October twenty eighth of eighteen eighty six fix lady liberty herself has a full and proper name the Statue of Liberty enlightening the world. The statue's face was apparently inspired by the the face of Berkeley's mother made from iron steel and three hundred layers of hand hammered copper weighing thirty tons. Lady Liberty Herself stands approximately one hundred and eleven feet. That's thirty four meters tall. She reaches an astounding three hundred and five feet or ninety three meters. If you take her pedestal and torch into account that's the equivalent height of a twenty two story building the copper coating her is three thirty seconds of an inch thick or about two point five millimeters which happens to be the same thickness missile to American pennies placed together while the internal structure is comprised of cast iron and stainless steel as for her signature Green Hue. That's due to the natural. Oh Exhibition of that copper coating when the statue was originally completed in eighteen eighty six she had more of a copper penny tinge but over about three decades the brown hue fully oxidized to form the sea green color otherwise known as a Patina in Nineteen eighty-four. The statue got a makeover when her original torch was replaced by a new copper one covered in twenty four karat gold leaf the original torch is on display the monuments museum while the Statue of Liberty emerged from a desire to represent an alliance between America and France. Its core meaning is a mutual desire for freedom liberty for all people all over the world. It's no accident that the statue of Liberty was placed face southeast from that vantage point. She makes a perfect welcoming symbol for visitors and immigrants from her home on Liberty Island. The seven pointed crown on her head symbolizes. The seven continents em I'm seven seas and the broken shackles at her feet represent freedom from oppression. Lady Liberty possesses a few other symbols as well. She's holding a tablet in her left hand end inscribed with the date July four seventeen seventy six the date of American independence written in Roman numerals and that giant torch in her right hand. It's meant to represent represents enlightenment a fitting accessory for liberty enlightening the world as for the Lazarus poem some history experts like Robert j McNamara believe if that while Bartholdi had originally envisioned lady liberty as a symbol of America exerting its own freedom the new colossus represented America as a refuge for oppressed people seeking liberty and an understanding by people born as American citizens that had we been born elsewhere. We might be similarly seeking liberty from oppression and suffering while there may be countless interpretations dissections and Miss Readings of Lady Liberty's many possible meanings one thing is for sure. She has indeed served as America's one woman. Welcome Committee for well over a century when the US government opened a federal immigration station on Ellis Island in eighteen ninety to about twelve million immigrants were eventually processed there before receiving permission to enter the country all of whom were greeted by the sight of the Statue of Liberty nearby today a statue of Liberty.

One of the most popular attractions attractions is climbing up to her crown which has twenty five windows overlooking New York City and harbor. It's a strenuous climb a tight spiral staircase but visitors are rewarded with panoramic views of Brooklyn as well as original supporting iron and steel framework.

What Does the Statue of Liberty Stand For?
"It give us your tired your poor those lines etched on the statue of liberty by poet Emma Lazarus are part of our common understanding about what America is what it has stood for since its founding yesterday a top immigration official in the White House can Cuccinelli said he's quote certainly not prepared to take anything down off the statue of liberty but at the same time a new administration role will fundamentally change who gets to come to this country okay since when since when have we been the country that says Hey come here for free stuff Hey come here if you can't afford things in your country come here because we're going to give it to you for free since when now they will argue that that is the Emma Lazarus poem give us your tired your poor your huddled masses that is not what that palm means and we've talked about it before but it is important that you understand it so you can teach it to your friends they're never going to get it there's never there I have yet to see the anchor or anyone from the left that will honestly say you know what I was wrong I learned something I I see this in a different way I had a misunderstanding I have not seen that from the left I have seen that from the right we've done it on this program it's important if you don't do that you're not learning anything so the misunderstanding is it the statue of liberty the emphasis is always on she's the mother of exiles she's this mom and she's saying give us your poor your tired your huddled masses because we're a giant hospital that's not what she's saying that's not what America is what in what world including the world of Jesus Christ in what world does a messenger say Hey if you're really poor and you just can't make it and you wanna live off the fruits of somebody else come here come here in what world does that work in what world is that financially reasonable in what world is that spiritually reasonable that rushes people the statue of liberty is eight Allen she holds imprisoned lightning what is imprisoned lightning what does it mean her towards his cold imprisoned lightning isn't lightning is leading the way of a brighter tomorrow it's not just it's not a flame that claim that torture is imprisoned lightning imprison lightning talks is a direct reference to the to the discoveries of the age imprisoned lightning is another way of saying a light bulb it is the invention of the time that is moving things forward she is the mother of exiles but let's just look at her for a minute what is the crown it's not crown it's a misinterpretation have you ever seen the Michelangelo sculpture of of Moses that's sculpture of Moses it's sitting in Rome in a church it's beautiful sculpture but it is weird as hell because Moses has horns look it up he has two horns coming out of the side of his head you're like what it why this Moses ham horns because it's a misinterpretation of a word it is easily I can't remember the word but it is easily translated to horns but it is not horns it is a range of light so it's not a crown it is the light behind the statue of liberty she is standing as a guard in front of something that is all I don't know dear I say a shining city on the hill the light behind her is reflected in that crown that is a crown of rays of light and she is standing at our son said wash gates she is standing like the Colossus of Rhodes but the Colossus of Rhodes which was one of the wonders of the world the Colossus of Rhodes was holding a spear and a shield it was a warrior and the ships would go in between his legs and he would stand to add more roads this great old port and people would come in and that Colossus was saying don't screw with us it was meant as a warning but is it Emma Lazarus says here it our son said washing gate's stands the mother of exiles now the mother of exiles also has chains around her feet but they're broken chains they are broken chains not just as a reflection of of us breaking the chains of slavery in eighteen sixty five it's not just that it is breaking the chains of slavery because of pomp and circumstance circumstance and and and your heraldry it's it's breaking the chains of you can't do it because you're not a lord a lady landowner and what breaks those chains is what she's holding the law so if you understand the Emma Lazarus poem it is not it is not ever to be read this your poor your tired your huddled masses just send them here we're going to hold them that's not the way it is meant if you listen to the whole poem you'll understand not like the brazen giant of Greek fame with conquering limbs astride from land to land we are not conquerors every war have we conquered and we did we conquer Europe or did we conquer tyranny and given that land and that government back to the people we are not conquerors that take land so not like the brazen giant of Greek fame the Colossus of Rhodes with conquering lambs astride from land to land here at our C. washed sunset gate shall stand a mighty woman with a torch now does that sound like your mom she's not my eighty mom that is standing there with a pie or a mom who is standing there with a teddy bear and a blanket this is a mighty woman with a torch whose flame is the imprisoned lightning the ideas of tomorrow that are happening today and her name is the mother of exiles all that sweet from her vegan handed glows worldwide welcome her mild eyes command the air bridged harbor the Twin Cities frame those Twin Cities The New York harbor that's that's New York City in Brooklyn she's standing there in between the Twin Cities and she's welcoming people but how is she welcoming them with my old eyes that command command what commands that you listen to what she's saying your ancient glands in your store read on so in other words I don't care what your history is I don't care that you have lords and ladies I don't care that you went to the right college the right university you have the right papers your in the right guild you're in the union so you can do it I don't care keep all of that keep your ancient lands in your story pop crises she was silent lips give me your tired your poor your huddled masses yearning to breathe free the wretched refuse of your teeming shore she's saying here I challenge you I challenge you send all the people that you say you can't do it please send me all of the people that you are holding down because they're just riffraff they're not the right people they'll never make it send those people to me send those people to me the homeless the Tempest tossed the people you don't want to send the garbage that you don't want why so I can hold them no because I lift my lamp beside the golden door the rays of light reflected from behind her the you see in the crown the rays of light she's standing behind or next to a golden door she is a guardian of that door there is something special on the other side of that door something behind her then a shining so bright send them here because the promise of what you can do I don't care who you are if you apply yourself you'll make it here that's what America is that's what the statue of liberty stands for not this bull crap of we're going to hold everybody who just can't make it and doesn't want to do anything for themselves and they just want to sponge off of us that is putting a chain around their legs and a chain and a ball around our children's necks that's not what the statue of liberty stands for she says she is the breaker of chains but she's only let you through the door you have to do

"Most public artworks tend to, stay in place while people walk around them think of the recent rhinoceros sculpture at Astor place the summer. But. You can take a ride around the New York harbor the summer on a work of public art Taba our backs flow separation is a dazzled New. York City fireboat the John Jay Harvey which has been repainted in a truly dazzling red and white pattern it's a project, of the New York City public art fund. In collaboration with fourteen eighteen now the United Kingdom's public art. Commemoration of the centenary of World War One the fireboat has been docked at various peers around the city it's. Currently at the Hudson river park's pier twenty-five where it's open to public tours and free rides. On, weekends. I'm happy to welcome. The projects curator Emma Enderby to? Our show to tell us about it Hello welcome thank you so? Much so what's the history of this who decided that it was a good idea to Asil a boat In the New York harbor sure so fourteen eighteen now a co commissioners in London they had. Been, dazzling. Vessels in the u.. K. about four dazzled vessels and? Dazzled is a term from World War One decide that yeah so Dazzle is this extremely kind of a little known history but also part very much part of history it was invented technique invented by. An. Autism Oh no milk in San in nineteen. Fourteen and really at the height of the war by. The British by the yeah he was British artist and at the height of the war there. Are approximately like eight ships being sunk a day passenger ships warships seeing sent by u boats being sunk by Gemini, boats Yesica crossing the, Atlantic and he came up with this idea of this technique really working also with, the biologist that, was known as dazzle and it was essentially it was a type of camouflage kind of typical. Like bold intersecting forms, and patterns various different colors and the kind of concept is similar to the way that like zebras patterns confuses the eye so at the, time the way that these bites are being. Targeted was optically by kind of a device Kind of you find that, people would, look at on the Gemini votes where you had to kind of bring two, images together to make a hull and the idea was. Kind of dazzled vessel would, be, would be confusing wouldn't necessarily be able to orientate water see what direction it was going in where the front, or, the back was relying on the human eye back then this. Is all analog this is pre yeah no rate on. It so not so this is all on the humanize it was is an interesting type of. Camouflage because it wasn't really about hiding it was more about confusing rambling yeah outsmarting your enemy and it was interesting, because it was also, very much connected to the most avant garde art movement at the time normal bookings, kind of drew, on the cubis the futurist the voter cysts who were kind of painting with this type of. Abstraction within their work, and that kind of connects to that history as well so there's this commemoration of World War One in Britain and they reach out to the public art fund to New York City yes so well it's kind of has a. Longer history to that that I was working on an exhibition on voices, exhibition which is kind of the UK, little known avant-garde movement okay into the Futurists and and Cuba's etcetera and those artists like one of them to pick particular Edward Wadsworth went. On to actually, coordinate, the dazzling of thousands. Of ships. Because he you know he applied his. Own idea of painting abstraction onto onto a vessel and island about that history. Seeing one of these dazzled vessels. By, fourteen thousand nine. Now and I was like oh I know what that is dazzle and started speaking with Jenny who's at fourteen eighteen. Now and we started talking about how important it would, be to, bring a docile ship to New York also because this history is not confined, to the u. k. when the US joined joined the. War effort they also decimate Also dazzled I think the story guys that no Wilkinson the inventor kind, of road in Sort of. Into New York on Hudson river on dazzled festival, to kind of wow everyone into this and so the US navy, started also dazzling ships right in New. York's down at. The Brooklyn navy add as well but you're commemorating this with a fireboat that's Why did you decide to, do the John. Jay Harvey fireboat it's a retired fireboat yet so, all of the vessels that have been previously dazzle to kind of, unlike some of them kind of unlikely. Vessels A colleague. Of mine we kind of took to the water to kind of find the right vessel think road every single but River and for us just you know the history of the John Jay Harvey it it is a, nonprofit in its own right it five built in nineteen thirty-one decommissioned in the. Ninety s was going, to be sold for scraps and then it was essentially saved and some people that bought it at, all What'd auction and have been sort of maintaining and running it having it as a. Museum offering, free rides the public and it just felt like that ethos, and everything they were about. With so, akin to the public, art fund public, funds being, bringing free public art to, New York for over forty years. And it just felt like a great synergy between the, two organizations. Is also, famous, I mean if you've. If you've been around New York in the summer you've. Probably seen it spurting you know the water pump says it goes by you know the parks along the waterfront but. It's. It's, a children's book there's a children's book, because of, its role in nine eleven it I mean, oh my editor Julian Welby she told me. That's how she introduced her son tonight eleven buzz by reading the children's book about how this vote, came out of retirement to help put out the fire yeah yeah it did The as they've told me they kind, of rushed onto the fiber volunteers what entirely sure if. It was even going to work or pump Mortagne then took it to low, low Manhattan and pumped water for eighty hours, so yeah, that's really cool so why did you ask tower Taba our back to dazzled tell us about her work she's I know she's from San Francisco and she lives in New York now does. She have any affinity to the harbor because of those two cities or what made. You pick, her and her work so I mean it was really thinking, about you know at the. Time this, kind of connection between, these docile vessels, and the, misquote of avant-garde painters of, the time and thinking you know. Who now is working in a similar vein within sort, of within. The medium, of, painting and Talbot has. Always been an artist that has kind of challenge that. Perception of abstraction I'm thinking about sort of mathematics form Tyler dimensionality all of that is woven into the into her. Work. So, it felt Like this that should be such an interesting artists to tackle this. Historic idea also she's a very process driven artists, and I was so intrigued as to how would she. Get Honda's design Which was sort of I. Mean it was incredible. The way, the how she got, to that point we're going to get there in a minute but this is radio so let's let's describe this photo, a little bit it's red and white the dazzling it's it's different.
