Greene, Rhode Island
Greene is a village and census-designated place in the southwest corner of the town of Coventry, Rhode Island, United States. It is on the Connecticut border, just north of West Greenwich; the name derives from a Rhode Island-born general in the American Revolution. Until 1854 Greene was a swamp with a cart path running through it; the path connected Hopkins Hollow to Rice City in the north. In the early 1850s, the railroad came to the area and the original train stop was known as "Coffin Station" because Coffin Road was nearest road. In 1856 railroad officials renamed the station "Greene" after the Revolutionary War hero because of the bad associations with the name "coffin." It was decided to build a depot where local farmers could sell their produce to the trains heading towards Providence and Hartford. Within a few years of opening, the Greene depot was the most important station in western Rhode Island; every morning farmers would bring their produce to sell to the 7:25 milk train going to Providence.
As the station grew in importance, a village grew up around the station, sending large amounts of milk and cranberries via train. A school, church and meeting hall were built as well as a religious campground in the Greene area, where the Advent Christian Church held annual camp meetings starting in 1880 on what was part of the Peckham estate; the religious campground was the most important one in Rhode Island, where every summer, camp meetings were held, which were held in the style more found in the South and in the Mid-West. The railroad would add on extra cars to their trains, up to 10,000 people would attend. After the beginning of the 20th century, the camp meeting ended decades later. With the coming of the automobile in the first part of the 20th century, the railroad's importance declined and in 1969, closed. Today, Greene is a shadow of. However, the village is intact, with most of the buildings dating from the late 19th century
Greene, New York
Greene is a town in Chenango County, New York, United States. The population was 5,604 at the 2010 census; the town is named after General Nathanael Greene. It is located in the southwest corner of the county and contains a village named Greene; the town and village are northeast of Binghamton. Part of modern Greene was from land purchased in 1785 from the Oneida and Tuscarora people, but many of the Oneida remained in the area until about 1812. In 1792, the first outside settler established himself at Greene village; the town was known as "Hornby", but changed its name to Greene in honor of General Nathanael Greene, a hero of the American Revolution. The town was formed from the towns of Bainbridge and Union in 1798. More was added to Greene from Bainbridge in 1799; the town was reduced by the formation of new towns: Coventry and Smithville. More of Greene was taken to form part of the town of Barker in 1840, another part of Greene was added to Coventry in 1843. In 1842, the village of Greene was incorporated within the town.
The former Chenango Canal helped build the town's commerce until replaced by the railroad, in turn replaced by Route 12 and State Highway 206. In 1945 the Gross Flat flying field was purchased by Robert Barrows and the Greene Airport was established; the airport is located on 173 Airport Road. Boasting one of the longest and widest grass strips in the area, it is frequented by pilots in training, it is open to the public and has a local CFII instructor and a certified A&P. The Greene Airport has a live updating weather station that sends data to the National Weather Service; the Chenango River Theatre was founded in Greene in 2006 by a committee dedicated to the concept of establishing a professional, non-profit theatre to help attract tourists to Greene and Chenango County. That committee evolved into a Board of Directors, who selected Bill Lelbach as the company's initial Artistic and Managing Director. Now in their 11th season, the theatre is still headed by Lelbach and still one of the few Equity theatres in the country able to survive in a rural environment.

The Greene Town Center
The Greene Town Center, is a mixed-use development located in Beavercreek, Ohio. The complex is an established mixed-use, retail and entertainment center and serves as the third major shopping mall in the Dayton region; the co-owner and developer, Steiner + Associates, is known for creating similar town centers such as the Easton Town Center in Columbus as well as other centers in the Cincinnati-Newport and Kansas City regions. The Greene was built in two phases over 72 acres of land at a cost estimated exceed $200 million when complete; the developer provided the majority of the funding, but based on the $186 million estimate, the public's share is $14.8 million, or eight percent of the total cost. This is the lowest percentage bond financing in their portfolio; the location of the property is within the southeast boundaries of Indian Ripple and Stroop Roads, just off the exit to I-675. Phase I was completed 2006; the first phase includes tenants such as Lane Bryant, White House Black Market, Cheesecake Factory, Chico's, numerous other retailers and/or restaurants, some new to the Dayton area.
The architect of record for the majority of the project was Apel. The development for Phase I included: a comedy club, a fitness club, as well as an upscale movie theater. Phase I includes 100,000 square feet of second-floor office space overlooking the town square and 136 residential loft apartments; the mixed-use residential buildings were designed by Torti Gallas and Partners. Phase II focused on fashion which include Von Maur. Von Maur is sometimes described as the Nordstrom of the Midwest and features fashion and beauty products, but not furniture or other department store goods. Like Nordstrom, Von Maur is known for a high degree of customer service, including handwritten notes from employees following purchases. Phase II was completed in fall 2008. Along with Von Maur, several other stores and shops have filled some vacant space in the complex. In 2014, The Greene announced. Building for the national retailer Nordstrom Rack; the environment of The Greene is that of a civic center which hosts outdoor concerts, holiday events and a family gathering space during both the summer and winter, in particular children playing in the main fountain during the summer.
Research from other Steiner projects has evidenced that the number of visitors is unaffected by seasonal weather. All metered parking benefits a charitable foundation. Parking in lots and garages is free; the affluent areas of Beavercreek, Kettering, Oakwood and Springboro are the core market for the shopping complex. During construction, the shopping center was a controversial topic among people in the cities surrounding the development; the land was once a wooded property and Beavercreek officials debated on the economic impact. Opponents question if the area could support The Greene, The Mall at Fairfield Commons and the Dayton Mall; the Greene has an age-restricted curfew of 9:00 p.m. everyday. Persons under the age of 16 are not permitted on the premises of the center without an adult present. On May 26, 2015, several stores within the area of The Greene and The Greene Crossing shopping centers were damaged by a brief EF-1 tornado, which flipped cars and uprooted trees. Two individuals suffered a Kmart parking lot was evacuated.
Ten cars were overturned in the parking lot of a Japanese restaurant and a Waffle House restaurant was damaged. The tornado was part of a wider system that affected greater Dayton, Ohio area, downing trees and wires and damaging roofs. Video of the tornado was captured by security cameras of The Greene Town Center; the tornado was on the ground for one minute and traveled half a mile. Winds reached speeds of over 100 MPH; as of the next morning, power was still out to several businesses affected by the tornado. A franchise of Fitworks, a gym with locations in Ohio and Kentucky, was reported as having the most damage; the Waffle House remained closed due to damage to its roof.

USS Greene (DD-266)
USS Greene was a Clemson-class destroyer in the United States Navy in service from 1919 to 1922. She was recommissioned in 1940 and wrecked in a storm in October 1945. Greene was named for Samuel Greene and launched 2 November 1918 by the Bethlehem Shipbuilding Corporation's Fore River Shipyard in Quincy, Massachusetts. Greene sailed from Newport, Rhode Island 5 June 1919 for Brest via Plymouth and returned to New York 27 July. Underway again 18 August, she put in at San Diego, California, 22 December and decommissioned there in March 1920. Remaining in the Reserve Destroyer Force until 10 September 1921, she sailed from San Diego that date for the Puget Sound Navy Yard. Greene returned shortly thereafter to San Francisco, arriving 2 December 1921, decommissioned there 17 June 1922. Recommissioned 28 June 1940 at San Diego, Greene was towed to San Francisco and was redesignated AVD-13 6 April 1941 following conversion, she sailed 27 April for the Caribbean and conducted training and tended seaplanes off Puerto Rico and Bermuda.
One week after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, Greene sailed for Brazil. Until the summer of 1942 she served as seaplane tender at Natal with one call at Rio de Janeiro for repairs in February 1942, she returned to Charleston, South Carolina 18 July 1942. She escorted a convoy from Norfolk, Virginia to Bermuda and operated in the South Atlantic for the next 6 months as a convoy escort, making two voyages to Rio de Janeiro. Back at Norfolk 26 February 1943, she steamed from there to NS Argentia, Newfoundland, to operate with Bogue, one of the new escort carriers designed to hunt German submarines in the North Atlantic. Both warships sailed 23 April to escort a convoy to Londonderry Port, Northern Ireland, made the eastward passage without incident. On the return leg of the voyage, one of the first major engagements between carrier-based aircraft and submarines attempting a rendezvous for mass attack occurred 21 May – 22 May, when Bogue's planes made six attacks on submarines and sank U-569 in 50-40 N. 35-21 W. Twenty-four Germans were captured.
During a second antisubmarine patrol from 31 May to 20 June 1943, Bogue and her escorts, including Greene, sank further submarines: U-317 5 June in 30-18 N. 42-50 W. and U-118 in 30-49 N. 33-49 W. one week later. For these two successful antisubmarine operations Greene received the Presidential Unit Citation; the Bogue group was the first of a series of offensive antisubmarine warfare patrols in response to the U-Boat assault in the Atlantic. Subsequently, until the fall of 1943, Greene escorted a fast troop convoy from Norfolk to the United Kingdom and return, operated off Bermuda. On 5 October she sailed as carrier escort for Core in company with Goldsborough. On 20 October the group sank U-378 in 47-40 N. 28-27 W. Greene returned to Charleston 19 January 1944 for conversion to high speed transport, was designated APD-36 on 1 February 1944. After intensive training, she stood out 12 April for Oran, Algeria, to take part in Operation Dragoon, the invasion of Southern France. On 14 August, when she left the staging area at Propriano and landed American and Canadian troops on the Levant and Port Cros Islands off the coast of France between Toulon and Cannes.
Greene's troops were assigned to the mission of seizing the strategic islands and silencing long range coastal batteries thought to be emplaced there. That day, the islands were secured - many of the German "guns" turned out to be stove pipes - and the stage was set for 15 August assault on the mainland. With her tasks accomplished, Greene served on escort duty in the Mediterranean until departing Oran 6 December 1944 for Norfolk, where she put in 21 December. Underway once more 29 January 1945, the warship steamed via Panama to reach Ulithi 31 March and commenced escort duties. During April she escorted four carriers to Okinawa, she returned to Guam to meet another Okinawan convoy, stood antisubmarine picket line duty off Okinawa.

After the war's end, she evacuated ex-prisoners of war from Nagasaki after that port had been razed by the second atomic bomb dropped on Japan, moored at Okinawa 24 September.
Greene's long career came to an end during Typhoon Louise on 9 October 1945 at Okinawa. Winds in excess of 100 knots drove her aground on the northwest coast of Kudaka, damaging her beyond economic repair. All useful material from the ship was salvaged, she decommissioned 23 November 1945. Greene was struck from the Navy List 5 December 1945, her wreck was destroyed with explosives on 11 February 1946.

Greene and Greene
Greene and Greene was an architectural firm established by brothers Charles Sumner Greene and Henry Mather Greene, influential early 20th Century American architects. Active in California, their houses and larger-scale ultimate bungalows are prime exemplars of the American Arts and Crafts Movement. Charles and Henry Greene were born in Ohio, in 1868 and 1870, respectively, they grew up in St. Louis, on their mother's family farm in West Virginia while their father attended medical school; as teenagers, the brothers studied at the Manual Training School of Washington University in St. Louis, where they studied metal- and woodworking and graduated in 1887-1888, their father, a practicing homeopathic physician by this time, was concerned with the need for sunlight and circulating fresh air. Charles and Henry each received a "certificate for completion of partial course," a special two-year program at MIT's School of Architecture, in 1891, they studied classical building styles, intending at that time only to gain certification for apprenticeships with architecture and construction firms upon graduation.
After MIT in spring 1890, Charles apprenticed first with the firm of Andrews and Rantoul. By March 1891, he had moved again to work with Herbert Langford Warren, he would stay there until the two brothers departed to join their parents in California. Henry apprenticed first with the firm of Chamberlin & Austin and briefly went to work with Shepley and Coolidge. All the firms the brothers worked for were located in Mass.. In 1893 their parents requested; the brothers agreed and, while traveling by train from Boston, they stopped at the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago and saw a few examples of Japanese architecture. This experience made a lasting impression on both of them, according to a late-in-life interview with Henry. There was very little Japanese influence upon their work until after Charles visited the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition in St. Louis. In 1901 Charles Greene married Alice Gordon White, they honeymooned in Europe and her native England; the architectural firm of Greene and Greene was established in Pasadena in January 1894 culminating with the designs of their "ultimate bungalows", such as the 1908 Gamble House in Pasadena considered one of the finest examples of residential architecture in the United States.
Two other landmark ultimate bungalows were the Robert R. Blacker House in Pasadena and the Thorsen House; such ultimate bungalows were custom affairs, where the vast majority of elements—light fixtures, furniture woven textiles—were created for specific spaces in the home. After 1901 the firm began developing the distinctive stylistic elements that came together as a cohesive whole in their grand works of 1907-09; the Greenes developed a personal idiom within the Arts and crafts aesthetic, receiving commissions to design furnishings for their houses. Charles' sketches for the 1903 Mary Darling house were published in England in Academy Architecture the same year, representing the first foreign publication of the firm's work. In 1905 the Greenes began an association with Peter Hall as the primary contractor for their major commissions, from 1907 with his brother John Hall, who ran a millwork shop producing their decorative arts and furniture designs; the structure of the Greene & Greene house is essential not only to the immense feeling of security that such an overly-supported structure brings, but accentuates the importance of the Arts & Crafts fundamentals in the Greene & Greene style.
The visual importance of the aesthetic nature of the joints and complex wood-work symbolizes the structure of the house, coincides with the principles taught in the Manual Training School of their youth. The structure of the house is exploded, rather than hidden in decoration; each element of the structure asserts itself. This extravagance of support takes its origins from the elaborate joinery and framing of traditional Japanese architecture; the Greenes took on few commercial projects. Their attention to detail would not have been possible in a larger firm, or one that focused on commercial buildings as well as residential; the Greenes turned down offers to construct buildings in downtown Los Angeles. The Greene brothers were masters in their area of domestic concentration for which, until the year of 1948, they received little acclaim. In 1948 they received citations from the Pasadena Chapter of the American Institute of Architects and from the national body in 1952 for creating a “new and native architecture.”
In 1960, they were among the modern architects included in the book Five California Architects by Esther McCoy, where the chapter on the Greenes was written by Randall Makinson. The firm of Greene & Greene was dissolved in 1922 after Charles moved his family north to Carmel, California. Henry remained in Pasadena; the brothers remained lifelong friends until their deaths in the 1950s. Robert R.
