Ever wondered what the inside of a 7 star hotel looks like? ... ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ Here's a peak at the lobby in the Burj Al Arab, Dubai 😍 The hotel is a private resort for guests only but if you make a dining reservation you can visit 👌🏻🥂 Definitely worth the splurge if you are deciding to go all out on your trip to Dubai to experience how the other half live 💸😂The Burj has been voted as one of the worlds most luxurious hotels and if the Sky Tea is anything to go by I can only just imagine the opulence of the hotel rooms 😍@luxuryhotelpix
Muckraking journalist Jacob A. Riis documented the urban squalor of NYC tenements on Manhattan's West & Lower East sides. He published his photos in his 1890 book, "How The Other Half Lives," shocking the public and helping to bring about the New York State Tenement House Act of 1901. See some of his images in “NYC Trash! Past, Present, & Future.” Link in profile.

Not the best picture of one of my favorite buildings in Brooklyn- the Cobble Hill Towers (formerly the Tower Buildings). Built in 1879 by Alfred T. White as workers housing. White was a philanthropist, housing reformer and Commissioner of City Works for Brooklyn. At the time, White’s workers’ apartments were considered a revelation in healthy living for lower income New Yorkers. With interior bathrooms, courtyards and cross ventilation, the Tower Building and the adjacent Workingmen’s Cottages were a major improvement on the typical tenement. #cobblehill #cobblehillbrooklyn #brooklyn #housesofbrooklyn #cobblehilltowers #alfredtwhite #brooklynhistory #jacobriis #howtheotherhalflives #house #home #housesofnewyork #housesofinstagram #architecture #architecturalphotography #oldhouselove #archilovers #archi_ologie #curbed #curbedny #nyc #newyorkcity #nycarchitecture #nychouses
I love doing post-it gallery walks in my classroom. Today we read an excerpt from Jacob Riis' "How the Other Half Lives" and analyzed some of his well known photos. .

Fotografier af den gamle verdens emigranter og deres fattigdom i 1880’ernes New York lægger ryg til Anders Koppels spritnye jazzsymfoniske værk. Koppel har tonesat den rå armod og det trodsige håb i syv satser foran syv store projektioner af fotografier fra Jakob Riis' (1849-1914) gamle og berømte fotobog How The Other Half Lives. Det er ætsende billeder, af børn uden voksne, af fødder uden sko, af mennesker uden brød.
Mulberry Street Symphony hedder værket, og det er - ret spændende - skrevet til en improviserende jazztrio og et symfoniorkester på partitur. De tre solister er Benjamin Koppel på saxofon og amerikanerne Scott Colley på bas og Brian Blade på trommer. De er spitze folk. Ambitionen er at få det skrevne, udarbejdede partitur og de tre meddigtende jazzmusikere til at smelte sammen til en helhed og således ophæve grænserne mellem noteret og improviseret musik.
