"But you know, it's supposed to be this like cheery class about how to write magazine journalism and then all of a sudden 9 11 happens. The whole class changes. And we start writing, I asked the students to start writing about 9 11. But I remember it just being so vivid for me and thinking about it very much through a writer's lensed at that time because even though I wasn't professionally writing about it, I was reading a lot of assignments where people were writing about it. And where were you when 9 11 happened? Were you in the city? I was in maplewood, New Jersey. That is from my dad, my dad is born in. Really? You know what's straight? I don't, but Fred professes my dad's best friend and he's the mayor of maplewood. So I don't know. Well, he went to Columbia high school. He's effectively the mayor of maplewood he owns the right. So Fred professes a great benefactor of maple, but it's about 11 miles from Manhattan. And that Tuesday was a primary day. And so a lot of the staff on metro was supposed to be coming in later in the afternoon to be there for the returns and for the reactions and all that kind of nonsense. And so my wife and I had gone for a run, we came back, a friend called couldn't believe that we didn't know. And as soon as I saw it happen, I just started packing. And I drove from maplewood into basic Jersey City and we hawk and all the roads were shut down. They put the concrete trucks and dump trucks, blocking all the highways in the Manhattan but I got off one of the secondary roads. Ran down a hill and weak hawk into the river, and the circle line had become a refuge for people fleeing Manhattan. A lot of people just wanted to get the hell off in Manhattan island and they were flocking to places like the circle line. They remember the circle line for those who don't know New York is just this look tourist boat that circles the Manhattan island. Yeah. Right, right. It's a tourist both that circles Manhattan goes up to bare mountain and what have you. And so now its mission has been transformed. They are basically ferrying people from the west side of midtown Manhattan to Jersey. And so the circle line comes into weehawken 600 people get off, and I go to whoever was in charge and I said, can I get a ride back? He said, sure, knock yourself out. And so the circle line, which is supposed to carry 600 net has about 6. And I remember one of the guys had a paper bag. He was bringing his lunch to his wife, and he clearly was suffering some kind of traumatic stress. You know, made no sense. He's bringing his bag lunch to his wife. And then the ferry stopped in the middle of the Hudson River waiting for a birth to open up and you just looked south and you could see the pie. You could see the smoke rising. And so we finally made it to Manhattan and then for the next several days, I was in the newsroom writing different stories went home for a day or so and then a few days later I swapped out with Chris chivers, Chris rivers was embedded with the National Guard and battery park and so he came out and I went in, so I spent a few days embedded with the National Guard, just south of sight. And I remember getting out of a tent..

"I'm John Bachelor. This is the John Bator Show New York, New York City and the centre of 21st century politics and finance. But over the last 400 years since its arrival on the planet, thanks to the judge New York has been the center of Conflict of War. Armed conflict threat Overwhelming Threat one that we live here within the 21st century very much looks like the threat changing time and space and on and subtracting the Internet that was faced in the 17th century. Following the story is a wonderful new book. For All of You, who visited New York who live in New York would think about New York. What is it gets so much attention in New York at war for centuries of combat fear in tree. In Gotham. Steven H. Jaffe is the author Steve Congratulations and Good evening I begin with Keith swore because I learned from you that a man by the name of William Keefe, who was a Dutchman, he was director of the early Dutch settlement here in the Southern part, the most southern tip of Manhattan Island, where there was a Fort And he created what you'd have to say was massacre after massacre and turmoil and hatred between the settlers. There were very few of them and the native Americans, all the tribes around us that happens. The car of the the Ah Kun RC as well as the other tribe's over on the other side of the Hudson, the Mohicans. Who was Keith? And why did he pick a fight with the What were called then? Indians? Good evening to you? Yes. Good evening. Thank you. Well, well, um Keith Waas, a bureaucrat essentially for the Dutch West India company, which wass the commercial enterprise, sort of quasi governmental because they had backing from the Dutch government at the time. The Dutch West India company was the enterprise that really founded what we now think of as New York City in New York state by sending over settlers in 16 24. Uh, Keith becomes governor in the 16 forties. He is a man who, apparently from what we can glean from the sources was not much of a, um ah, thinker when it came to sort of thinking out strategically. The results of antagonizing the local Indians. As you mentioned John, there are a few 100 Dutch and other European settlers. At the tip of Manhattan Island, then known as New Amsterdam, the city of New Amsterdam. There surrounded by all of these tribes that you mentioned, all of whom in this part of the of the country, where part of the larger let not people that was larger designation self designation by these Indians. Um, and things started out fairly ah, peacefully there. Even with Henry Hudson. Initially in 69 there had been some bloodshed. But the time Keith is here, however, Things have gotten worse and worse between more tense between local Indians and the Dutch settlers over issues having to do with Keith's attempt to tax them. To raise revenues over the issue of land settlement as more and more Dutch farmers spread out from lower Manhattan into the surrounding countryside on DH clash with local Indians living there. Ah and Keith. I think you have to say stupidly or short sidedly opens up the Pandora's box by launching repeated attacks against Indian peoples in the area. This results in German warfare. The whole the whole conflict is known as keeps. War really lasts on and off for almost five years in the early 16 forties. Tragic, very, very sad sequence of events. Uh, the Indians retaliate against outlying Dutch settlement. Um, lives were lost on both sides. Settlements are are burned to the ground. And you know, the one thing that I tried to point out in the book is That when we think about the rode to wounded knee to the final vanquishing of the American Indians in 18 90 in the Far West, the rode to wounded knee starts. In New York Harbor just as much as it started in the Chesapeake and in Massachusetts Bay, which also had Indian conflicts in the 17th century. Between the English settlers and local Indians. And you know, I grew up in New York City and was never taught in school. It it It's a phase of Thie early colonial history of New York. That really until perhaps more recently than I was in school, anyway, was was kind of erased from the textbooks erased from consciousness. Um and you know that's really one of the reasons I wrote this book was to restore our Ah, awareness of a lot of the military history of New York to the New York City area that that we're unaware of, or I've forgotten. Here come the conquers because in 16 64 The king of England on his brother. Both lay claim to some of the territory that the Dutch have claim to the north. There is a tree view the Hartford treated. There's a division between New England and the Dutch here in New York. However, that doesn't satisfy a man named nickel shows up with a war fleet off Ford Amsterdam, then directed by Peter Stuyvesant. He gives them an ultimatum. And Stuyvesant thinks shrewdly might as well surrender. And is that the end of the Dutch off with one little episode in future? That's the end of the Dutch Suzuran Indian in Manhattan that moment. Right, and it's just surrender. It's a wise thing. Don't fight an overwhelming force. That's correct. Stuyvesant has a hard time coming to that conclusion because he is a real soldier. He's he's a man who came up through the ranks of the Dutch West India company. I mean, he is Keith, successor as governor, basically director of the colony, But he had fought the Spanish on behalf of the Dutch in the Caribbean prior to his arrival on Manhattan Island, So he's a guy really of a real marshal temperament. He's a very capable administrator far, far, far more so than Keith had been But he does ultimately face realities that he's got a little fort with a few 100 settlers, a couple of 100 militiamen and soldiers that he can he can muster. On yet he's face he's facing not only a flotilla of English warships ah, manned by sailors and soldiers, but he's also got the problem that if he looks across the East River to the shore of where we're really, the Brooklyn Bridge is now today. Mom. He's got a whole. He's facing a whole mob of English farmers from the far reaches of Long Island who also wanna hand over the Dutch territory. Teo to the King of England, so he wisely as you said, decides not to fight. And from then forward Dutch New Amsterdam becomes English, New YORK There was a brief moment as you mentioned in 16 73 74 with the Ducks sail back in And take over again, But then they hand it back to the English during peace negotiations in 16 74. So you end up having New York as ah Ahs, a port city of the British Empire British Empire, but the Empire's now tangle for the next and 16 84 to 17 63. A serious of wars. Chiefly fought between the French and the English. The Spanish did get involved and the cops were always hanging on the side and New York was at the periphery of those, but this is a transforming period for New York. Mentioning William Kidd. Captain Kidd, the pirate who founds Trinity Church, who was one of these who's met named in Trinity Church is one of its founding fathers in his hanged in London is a pirate Is pirate Is New York a pirate haven at the turn of the century? About 70? No one is this a place where bucket where privateers are welcome. Yes, Yes, it's both Buccaneers and privateers are welcomed by the English authorities at that point, and there's there's.

"Thank you for joining the American Revolution Today episode one fifty three. Staten Island and talk it.

No one was sure where he would land, but most thought the ultimate destination was Philadelphia. When the fleet sailed away from New, York City in late, July seventeen, seventy seven. How left General Henry Clayton in command of the city with a few soldiers, most of whom were Haitians or local militia. General! How wanted his best combat soldiers with him for the Conquest of Philadelphia? In preparation for the removal of so many troops from New York, city, the British abandoned the even tiny tow- holds across the Hudson River in New Jersey which they had held a winter. Places like Elizabeth, town and boy and Brunswick. Although this meant completely abandoning, New Jersey the British did not want to leave any isolated outposts. That could be subject to attack. Putting the Hudson River between the two armies was a pretty substantial barrier for any army to cross. The river was deep enough at all points that no army could Ford it from New Jersey to New York. British forces. However, we're still spread out all over New York City area. including the occupation of all of Long Island Staten Island and Manhattan Island. This was probably about two thousand square miles of land, being guarded by only a few thousand dollars. With, the departure of House fleet, even holding that New York City area left some units relatively isolated and in areas, potentially vulnerable.

yesterday at this time in fact even less than that he was in New York City New York City yeah yeah I got on a plane this morning earlier alarm went off at eleven forty five Pacific time that would be eleven forty five PM Pacific time quarter to three in New York mmhm and then over to Newark if you're thinking about flying to New York in the next couple of years if you haven't been paying attention LaGuardia airport is under construction there literally building a new airport on top of the old one how did you know that if you know anything about the old one it was a mess so imagine trying to build a new one as one piece at a time you tear down the old one the new United terminal is open there but it's just the zoo so if you are flying to New York City and you can make it into new work and take the train into into Times Square on the Manhattan island on that really is by far a superior way to go for the next couple of years because if somebody is picking you up even if you're not parking the car there any from California flying in you're gonna ran a car you're going to take it over or lift into the city it's just the circus I mean there's no place for people to park or pick up or get out of so just just know that if you're going to be a smarter traveler and you can if you if you can avoid LaGuardia airport for about two more years it's going to be very nice when it's completed because a new United terminal is beautiful you get off the plane that you have to walk kinda like it's kind like the purple walk to get down to the old baggage claim because they're literally as you said they're tearing the airport apart one piece at a time and replacing it and of course the piece of a tear apart has to be replaced before they tear apart because the airport has to keep operating so it's it's pretty interesting place right now New York City speaking of crowds my goodness on the official crowd count for Times Square last night was a hundred eighty two gazillion people wow and that would be G. as in Brasilia well you did yeah I understand you got a chance to see a a little Christmas show I did we went saw a a brand new cirque show that's was being performed in the theater at Madison Square Garden so I don't know if the show is all over the country yet or it will show up next year but it was called the night before Christmas and if you've ever been to a search show you know that cirque de soleil which is a a a circus but has no animals they're all human animals and it's all about acrobatics and amazing choreography amazing choreography they show the music and they they took Christmas songs they did things with them that you would just never imagined so cirque de soleil it that's that they I've never seen a bad show of theirs and the new one night before Christmas was really good I was in Dallas for I was in fort worth and Dallas the people that were there yeah we talked to you last week and while you were in fort worth for the national the tour association convention we were ends up something really cool the Broadway folks bring in every year because tour operators make up their reasonable portion of their business and there are several hundred of us there so they bring in people from four or five shows on Monday which is the day that shows are dark and perform a song or two for us and we kind of get a little minute drive away concert is very nice here so this year they did something that was just amazing I thought and this show is coming to Sacramento this spring so if you haven't bought tickets yet do yourself a favor and go see come from away it's really a great great shelf anyways about the the post nine eleven and what happened all the international plane flights and how many of them landed in Gander Newfoundland the cool thing about this time though was they brought to an after an actress to perform for us a song from the show and then they brought out the two people who were the actual people that the actor and actress played in the show and talked a little bit about the about the show itself I thought that was just the may zing to have the people there that were being portrayed on the

"John Batchelor show on Manhattan island than those who visit ten those live there. No, there is no way to get from one side of Manhattan to the other diagonally. You must watch walking right angles or you must drive in right angles. Where did that come from who's great idea was it to make it so difficult to go cross? Town Gerard Capelle? He has a new book city on a grid. How New York became New York. And this is a Walker because there's everybody to blame. And no one to blame Gerard. Congratulations and good evening. And let's go to the I suspect. His name is unlikely Casamayor Theodore Gerke born seventeen fifty five Mary's into the Roosevelt family. Of course, he was a surveyor. What was his original genius vision of the island growing north of the original city? The Dutch city good evening to you. Well, first of all John great to be with you. All right. Let's talk about Casimir Gort or I think I think maybe was often pronounced like gorlic. But, but there are no survivors. So it's anybody's guess. So we'll just go work and what he did was even prominent surveyor in in New York served in the revolution. And settled as a surveyor in New York City posted post war and the city had owned, and let's go back a step and understand sort of visually that the city then is essentially sixty thousand people in the very southern tip of in Hatton in what is now considered downtown below. I if listeners know where it is chamber street say where we're city hall is now everybody every New Yorker or or or the the the densely settled part of New York. With south of that, the very southern tip further up the island was most of it was owned by various people, but not many people live there was farms. It was gives country houses for some small settlements. But the key part is then in the middle of the island. The least desirable part of the island of the hillians depart, the boggy est valley part that was land that was owned by the city, and it was actually given to the city by the Dutch government when when New York was new Amsterdam, and it was given to the city because it was incredibly undesirable land. It was topographic -ly undesirable. It was also geographically undesirable because it was in the middle of the island, and you know, people forget Manhattan's at island. You know, if you want to be able to get on and off the island, you want to be near the edge of it not in the middle of it just actually when you're only. Transportation was your feet or or an animal? So these lands in the center of the island, recalled the the so-called common lands, and we can sort of place where they are there about thirteen or fourteen hundred acres, which is about one ninth of the area of of Manhattan. Totally they started at what is now what became Madison Square, which is twenty third street intersecting with Fifth Avenue and Broadway. Now, understand none of those roads were there, then although I should say the road, the predated Broadway was there called Bloomingdale road, which is a country road that ran up the the west side of the island, and these common lands sort of spread out very irregularly. These these these fourteen hundred acres or so up roughly along the lines on the east of what's what became third avenue and what on the west became seventh avenue up to about. About well, actually, sort of precisely to a point that is that would be ninetieth street and seventh avenue and how people are clicking off in their heads. Whereas ninetieth street and seventh avenue, oh, it's in the middle of central park. It doesn't actually exist. But in any case, so.

"And how people are clicking off in their heads Weirs ninetieth street and seventh avenue, oh, it's in the middle of central park. It doesn't actually exist. But in any case, so we've sort of geographically set. Now where the common lands is before any of those streets are there. The city owns these lands are very undesirable. We're now post war and the city is cash poor it needs some way to raise money taxes, or very minimal the government itself is very small, but it needs money to sustain itself. And it gets the idea of okay? Let's take these fourteen hundred undivided common lands acres and divide them up into lots five acre. Lots and try to sell them off. And the guy that they hired to do it was. And now we're getting back to Mr. Gerke. They hired him to do it. He came up with an initial initial plan in seventeen eighty five he refined it in in the seventeen ninety s and basically what he did was he puts three north south roads, which he called east road middle road and west road. They were one hundred feet wide going on the axis of the island. Which is in fact, I if you're getting the the true magnetic axis of the of Manhattan island is twenty nine degrees east of north. So he lines up these three roads east middle and west twenty nine degrees. True. And since he's ordered to create five acre lots, oh, and I should say that the the distance between those roads is nine hundred twenty feet. Now you start doing math. If you have a lot that has to be nine hundred twenty feet long, and it has to be five acres. Okay. Then how many how many feet does it have to be on the other side? Well, it's roughly two hundred sixty feet. So what he did was create hundreds of of lots five acre lots nine hundred twenty feet long by two hundred sixty feet high or north south. And he also put in the in this this map that the top sixty of those two hundred sixty feet going east west might at someday be taken as streets to provide further access to all these lots now. In fact, none of those streets actually came to be as Gort plan them. But as we move forward in our story, we'll find out how relevant that was in any case these five acre lots are developed nine hundred twenty feet by two hundred sixty feet and the city's starts to. Sell some of them off, you know, alternately hilly and craggy and rocky and swampy boggy. We we need to go quickly now because we're going to get all the way to the modern.

"In the chef. In the hat and Katie oh has ditched this morning. So Sara Lee, our producer is going to step in and be a grounding force in our world of Sheffield. I'll try my best chef-owner of several of Seattle's finest restaurants, including the Dahlia lounge at a seafood. Palace kitchen Lola, and if you're going to the paramount check out the Carlisle rose right across the street from the paramount theaters, always fun. And I am the proud chef and owner of Luke in Madison valley, a French-American bistro and Lula downtown Seattle at the corner of six and union. No snow there. What's the way though? I know there, isn't it? Downtown please come down. Wasn't it ironic? I know that on the day that the tunnel finally opened, and we got rid of gloom that we ended up having our slowest day of the year by far with all the snow. So I think nine of our fifteen restaurants were actually closed on Monday. So unless I'm not say something I was open on both restaurants. We actually did. Okay. Because the the restaurant were closed because I went I was at your restaurant last night with a party of five. Yeah. I tried to keep the Bill under five thousand sorry. How am I gonna pay rent? Yeah. Exactly. We have a large show for you today is there is going to sit in a bit for Katie. Oh, we're traveling back in time to learn about Seattle's food history which Dern and her book the food and drink of Seattle from wild salmon to craft beer, we're going to take some Valentine's treats with w bakery manager, barb parrot sharing our favorite, Valentine's meals. We're going to go toe to toe at food trivia also and Sarah's going to play today. We're gonna kick. Eighties. Always kicking aren't afraid. I wrote the question. Oh. This gonna win. All right. I let's jump into a very romantic ordinary to extraordinary. What do you have for Sarah? That's right. So we're doing some more tines day themed treats such as steak. How'd you prepare a great steak? To me. I think done a great. Stick is already a great stick. So to prepare it differently. Just a little rub. Make sure you barbecue is very very hot because I would really outside. I did that this weekend when it was snowing. I was actually my eg outside grilling beef chops. It was very impressive. And then I did some. But what I would do is focus on the sides. Because I think that you know, stick is already. If you buy a great piece of meat, you already have that? And it's not done. How to greet me? It's not that. How you just obviously have to watch the temperature. But in most cases, you can really stake. I think what's interesting is decide gun issues. What you're gonna do with it, which makes it more appealing. I grilled some fennel than I actually stopped in not. So a marinated them in olive oil salt pepper on some fresh. Thyme chopped all around the final now left that on the counter for probably three hours. So it really must up moving it around in the ball. So he keeps everything fennel bulb. I did carrots which is easy to do as well. Just make sure you have a little bit of oil and salt and pepper. So he's a seasoned. And when you when it's time for you to grill those vegetable make sure there's no flame underneath. So there is no few no building of the oil and suits flavor. But other than that, you can agree with kill. Kale carrots fennel, and I did one more thing. But I can't remember what it is. Now. Tom any other suggestions and make a good on? This are looking to do some sort of delicious starch to go with that potato wet ID, the mashed potato we celery root a little bit of city routine is city route is the time. This is a time where you wanna by that bird that you're looking at the big bowl. And you're looking in the vegetable section and have no idea what to do with it just peel it really, well, carrot in small Cuban put it with your potato and do one celery two-thirds potato and mechanize mash, that's that makes a delicious flavour. Don't forget it needs a lot of butter. What doesn't? Hi. I knew a lot of butter and some sour cream. So if a good sticks always a good state. How do you know at the grocery store how to pick out a good one? Well, there's a couple of things you can look at. And let's just say we're gonna do New York because that's my wife's favorite steak is New York steak. So the big thing you want to check for is number one the grade, right? You wanna either choice or prime or something in that area? The higher the grade the fattier the steak is the less meat you need, and let's face it. You don't want to have a twenty four ounce steak on Valentine's amorous and all those kinds of things. Right. Doesn't quite go together. Secondly, you want to look on a New York steak. There's two ends of it that you can cut from right? And the one is called the nerve end. And the other is just kinda clear loin and of the New York state. You always want to try and get from the loin end the nerve if you're well done steak eater, then fine. Go ahead and buy the nerve end. But you're always finding in grocery stores and stuff that they're going to try and get rid of that nerve end. I if you don't know better. So it's something to be smart about and to recognize look it up online. You can see what a nerve and looks like. So when it's there under the. The plastic wrap. You can you can be smart, and you are going to be a better cook by having the better steak without that nerve tough nerve in the middle of your state end stands full, south Manhattan, because the New York stakes actually called a New York state because it shaped like New York. Manhattan island, the other thing I would say chef is aggressive to be out grilling. If this time of year, I was aggressive, but. Chef I dropped down to you. But I'm telling you it's also a time this time of year to maybe learn how to use your cast iron pan. Yes. To get a beautiful crust on the outside of your steak, and then to learn how to rest properly it's hard to get that same crossed on a charcoal grill unless you got that baby cranked up so seeks to practice. It's good practice time in a nice cast iron pan to get a great crust on your New York state. Maybe don't practice on Valentine's Day, though. Whatever I mean, it's not much of a Valentine if she doesn't give up or he doesn't give you a pass or overcooked mistake a little bit. But don't don't do it. You gotta meat thermometer. Right. We've told you a million times on the show to get a meat thermometer. Put it in the middle of your steak when it's at one fifteen or so you've got a rare steak when it's at one twenty one twenty five you got a medium rare state when it's at one thirty you gotta medium steak, so just you know, just figure it out use your thermometer. And that reminds me I have an apology to issue, which I'll I'll show do the next segment. I got a nice little note from the health department about my. My chatter last week about chicken. So we will talk about that. We'll talk about that. And I write to you. That's nice. Oh, all kinds of now. It's not usually well. She was actually sort of nice. Read at my house. We'll.
