"Juana de Dios Castrello, mejor conocida como Diosa Costello (April 23, 1913 – June 20, 2013). Antes que Rita Moreno, Iris Chacon o JLo, esta belleza nacida en Guayama, PR y residente en NYC, maravillo audiencias con su talento como bailarina, actriz y empresaria. Conocida como la primera Latin Bombshell fue la primera mujer latina en exponer la sensualidad caribeña a audiencias sajonas. En una entrevista dijo: "si hacen una pelicula de su vida JLo puede hacer el papel, aunque ella tenia un mejor trasero". RIP" - (Written by Pedro deJesus)

Named after the phrase uttered by #anthonyvancorlaer in #1682 as he tried to swim the #hudsonriver at that point, #inspiteofthedevil. He #drowned by either the strong currents or by a #sharkattack.

From 1860 to 1880, James B. Brown, a shoemaker, lived and worked in this house on Washington Avenue in the ancient Village of Morrisania. He may have had a store on the ground floor. This shot is from the early 20th century.  Today like almost all of the ancient village, the house is gone and forgotten. #oldnyc #bronxhistory #oldbronx #vintagebronx #bronxnostalgia #Morrisania #nychistory #bronxmemories #bronxneighborhoods
Historic Bronx survivor for over 150 years.  One of the very few  extant original homes of the historic Village of Morrisania stands on Washington Avenue.  The original owner was William Webster, dealer in wrenches and self described inventor. His sons, who were clerks, lived there until 1896. #oldnyc #bronxhistory #oldbronx #Morrisania #nychistory #bronxneighborhoods #bronxnostalgia #bronxmemories #vintagebronx
In 2010 the @nytimes reported that this building is the undisputed birthplace of hip hop, but those who know hip hop have accepted this fact decades ago...

End of an Era. I walked past this spot my entire childhood everyday. I took it for granted. Today is the first day I ever went inside. Got a tour of the end by Tom Nye who ran the place for 30+ years. End of an Era. No more sails will be made here. Lament and make anew. Tips if u visit City Island. Be open Buy records Don’t touch the varnish on the ‘new’ bar look out for fancy prices at pretty places and well be careful she speaks for herself if u scrolled 💕 #cityisland  #uksailmakers  #sailmakers  #sailmakerscityisland  #cityisland  #cityislandhistory  #tomnye  #tommynye  #cityislandnauticalmuseum  #cityislandadventure  #bronxhistory  #bronxart  #cityislandart  #unknownbronx  #bronxhamptons  #manoverboard  #blackwhale  #cityislandart  #bistrosk  #home  #roots  #clamdigger  #musselsucker  #siren  #seahag  #mermaid

One of my heroes is a gentleman who today, and has been for a very long time now, is the dean of arrangements and compositions for the traditional style of the Afro Cuban Jazz Big Band genre. Mr. Ray Santos' work can be discovered via a simple Google search. His "prints" are all over the catalog of Afro Cuban Jazz throughout the 2nd half of the 20th century. As someone who is passionate of going back to the very beginning of any phenomenon, I was tickled pink to discover this piece of NYC History. It is as valid as any other as far as I am concerned and those of you who are familiar with this great man will raise a glass to it as well. This is Ray Santos' very first 'gig' as a bandleader. Although Ray himself does not consider himself to be a "Professional" musician at the juncture this event took place, it's part of his musical career that precedes his recruitment into the legendary Noro Morales Orchestra. This event took place in 1951. As Ray described it, in those days, dance promoters were popping up everywhere in response to the emergence of the so-called "Mambo." Jewish Americans, in particular, were active in this regard. One such fellow approached Ray at the Palladium ballroom and told him he would be launching a weekly event at a new spot on Jerome Avenue in the Bronx. He offered Ray the opportunity to put together an ensemble for the evening and provide the live music. Ray accepted and the "Ray Santos All Stars" debuted on Thanksgiving weekend of 1951. Ray has been an "All-Star" since day 1 and has been going strong ever since. This is Bronx History and a small tribute to a humble giant. #salsahistory #afrocubanjazzhistory #nychistory #bronxhistory #raysantos #mambo #jazz #rhumba #mamboniks
