Manhattan Avenue (Brooklyn)
Manhattan Avenue is a north-south thoroughfare in the Brooklyn neighborhoods of Greenpoint and Williamsburg. It is the major shopping street in Greenpoint while it is residential in Williamsburg; the stretch through Greenpoint is called Little Poland for its high concentration of Polish culture and of Polish-named businesses and signage. The northern end was connected to Long Island City, Queens by the Vernon Boulevard Bridge across Newtown Creek and the southern end is at Broadway; the southern part of the avenue is one-way northbound while the portion in Greenpoint is bidirectional. The IND Crosstown Line of the New York City Subway runs under Manhattan Avenue north of McCarren Park, has two stations, Nassau Avenue and Greenpoint Avenue. Prior to the consolidation of Williamsburg and Greenpoint into the city of Brooklyn in 1855, what is now Manhattan Ave. existed in two unconnected segments. The segment in Williamsburg was called Ewen Street and the segment in Greenpoint was named Orchard Street below Greenpoint Avenue and Union Avenue above.
These were connected near McCarren Park and renamed Manhattan Ave. This was just one of several street name changes made in an attempt to better integrate the street systems of the different cities and towns after the merger
Park Tzameret is a residential neighborhood of Tel Aviv, Israel, on the east-central side of the city. It comprises eleven luxurious tall apartment buildings, with one more under construction as of 2018, surrounded by green space; the 133 dunams area has been modeled upon similar projects in Paris. Only 18% of the area will contain buildings. Two squares will be built at the southern and northern sides of the neighborhood with a 60-metre-wide avenue linking them. Mature trees and vegetation will be planted along the avenue. In total, 1,747 apartments will be built in the neighborhood with 6,000 square metres of commercial and public buildings; the east and west boundaries of the area will be delineated by 4.5-metre-high acoustic barriers. Approved in September 2002, the first project in the neighborhood to be completed was Yoo Tel Aviv; the area of Park Tzameret was part of a Bedouin village called Jamasin al-Gharbi, evacuated during the 1948 Arab–Israeli War. The empty houses were used to shelter Jewish refugees of World War II and the Jewish exodus from Arab lands.
The quarter was called Giv ` at Amal Gimel. The creation of Park Tzameret led to the demolition of the old homes, accompanied by a lengthy legal battle and negotioations for the compensation of the Giv'at Amal residents who would be displaced; this table shows the towers in Park Tzameret by rank and status. Eight buildings are complete, 3 are under 2 approved; the information source is Emporis Yoo Tel Aviv is a complex of two skyscrapers completed in 2007.

Manhattan College is a private, Roman Catholic, liberal arts college in the Bronx in New York City. After being established in 1853 by the Brothers of the Christian Schools as an academy for day students, Manhattan College was incorporated as an institution of higher education through a charter granted by the New York State Board of Regents. In 1922, the College moved from Manhattan to the Riverdale section of the Bronx 6.4 miles north of its original location on 131st Street in the Manhattanville section of Manhattan. Manhattan College offers undergraduate programs in the arts, education, health and science. Graduate programs are offered for education and engineering. Manhattan College was founded as the Academy of the Holy Infancy in 1853 by five French De La Salle Christian Brothers in a small building on Canal Street; when the need to expand forced them from Lower Manhattan, the college moved to 131st Street and Broadway, in the Manhattanville section of Harlem. The school's name was changed to Manhattan College when it received its state charter in 1863, moved to its present location in the Riverdale section of the Bronx in 1922 as it outgrew its facilities in Manhattanville.
This is the cause of some confusion as the college is located outside of Manhattan but still within the city limits of New York City. Exclusive to men, Manhattan College established a cooperative program with the College of Mount Saint Vincent after the pair became coeducational in 1973 and 1974, respectively; this partnership lasted until 2008. Since Manhattan College and the College of Mount Saint Vincent have been separate. For 118 years, a boys' secondary school, Manhattan College High School, known to students and rivals as Manhattan Prep was located on campus. Founded in 1854, the school educated its young men in a Catholic college preparatory curriculum geared toward eventual university matriculation, it was, indeed, a "prep" school in the classic sense: coats and ties were mandatory for class attendance. The curriculum included 3 years of Latin. Throughout its existence, Manhattan Prep was a partner of its host institution with a significant percentage of its graduates continuing on to study at Manhattan College.
The High School was located in De La Salle Hall. Students shared the college chapel, cafeteria and athletic facilities, its sports teams bore the nickname, "the Jaspers" just as the Manhattan College teams; the "Prep" supported varsity teams in swimming, crew and kayak, cross country and indoor/outdoor track, of course and baseball as members of the Catholic High School Athletic Association. There were junior varsity and intramural sports; the school newspaper, published monthly, was called The Prepster. After admitting a small class of 1971, Manhattan Prep closed its doors in 1972 due to rising costs and a decline in Lasallian Brothers' vocations; the members of the class of 1972 either accelerated to graduate in 3 years with the class of 1971 or left for other area Catholic high schools. Despite the closure of the high school, the Brothers continue to maintain a presence on the college campus as members of the faculty and support staff. In 2014, as part of the College's Homecoming celebration, a plaque acknowledging the Prep's contribution to the College's growth and spirit was erected on the wall of de la Salle Hall on the Quadrangle.
The plaque was dedicated by Brother C. George Berrian FSC, one of the Prep's last principals, in a ceremony attended by about 50 Prep alumni. Manhattan College occupies a compact campus; the college is divided into a north and south campus, in the residential Riverdale section of the Bronx. The North campus overlooks Van Cortlandt Park, has as its focal point "the Quad", which sits at the center of the campus's four main buildings. Memorial Hall is the main entry onto campus and houses the office of the president as well as most of the other administrative offices on campus. Miguel Hall and De La Salle Hall are the main academic halls. Miguel hosts the arts department and classes, while De La Salle is used by the business school; the fourth side of the Quad is bordered by the chapel building, which houses Smith Auditorium on the first floor and the Chapel of De La Salle and His Brothers on the second floor, which features a painting of De La Salle and Brothers behind the altar, a large performing area where musical events and concerts take place on the altar, a grand piano, a pipe organ in the balcony.
Thomas Hall, one of the college's student life building, houses the offices of the Dean of Students, the student government, the musical ensembles, others. The college's two dining halls, Locke's Loft and Cafe 1853 are located in Thomas Hall; the brand new Kelly Commons, named after notable alumnus Raymond Kelly, is another student life building, completed in 2014. It holds a Starbucks, a Marketplace, a state-of-the-art gym for student and faculty use, the Multicultural Center, halls for lectures and events, the student bookstore and the office for the student-run newspaper, The Quadrangle; the O'Malley Library is a six-story structure, joined with the previous library, the Cardinal Hayes Pavilion. Built on a hill, the new library was built directly next to and above the old one combining the two and creating more floors, while enhancing technology and adding gro
