Gowanus in the Fifties, summer is immortalized in open fire hydrants on street corners, where dozens of children would come out and play. 1906, when the weather was hot and unbearable, long lines at the Rivington Street Bath nearly caused a riot.
By 1911, Manhattan had twelve new bathhouses, most of them in immigrant neighborhoods, and of these bathhouses, a few offered swimming pool facilities. Jones Beach, which opened inauspiciously amidst a sandstorm in 1929, has since attracted more than 500million visitors, becoming a scared summer reprieve for generations of New Yorkers.

Medina.The Florida home has eight bedrooms, a barn, stables and horse training area and a guarded access road, according to Gawker. When the Eames lounge chair and ottoman were launched in 1956, they signalled a new direction in American consumerism.
The lounger has an unmistakably modern shape, but its leather upholstery roots it firmly in the tradition of English armchairs that can be traced back to William Morris’s late 19th Century designs. The new ‘Splash Lounge Collection’ offered an inviting retreat from the buzz of Chelsea 2015. These stories are incredibly important to the nation and help us piece together our recent history. Andree was awarded three medals for her actions, the Croix de Guerre, the Legion d’Honneur and the the Medaille de la Resistance (to receive all 3 honours is highly unusual).
We asked Matthew Oates Principal of MJO Wealth Management, Partner Practice of St James Place Wealth Management, to highlight the key points from the 2015 Budget.  Part of our occasional series where experts in the field of wealth management and other disciplines share their knowledge. The Chancellor proposed a reduction in the Lifetime Allowance to ?1 million from 6 April 2016, which will then index in line with the Consumer Prices Index. A Help to Buy Cash ISA has been announced for first-time buyers and will provide benefits of up to ?3,000 from the government. Further announcements will follow regarding changes to the permitted investments within ISAs.
From April 2016, the government will introduce a tax-free ‘Personal Savings Allowance’ of ?1,000 (?500 for higher rate taxpayers) on the interest earned from savings. The Income Tax Personal Allowance will increase to ?10,800 from 6 April 2016, and ?11,000 from 6 April 2017.
The Income Tax personal allowance will increase to ?10,600 in April 2015 and the higher rate tax threshold will increase to ?42,385. It was confirmed that the transferable Personal Allowance will be available from the new tax year. It was also confirmed that Class 2 National Insurance contributions for the self-employed are to be abolished. Despite recent speculation regarding the Inheritance Tax nil-rate bands, there were no changes announced. The government confirmed its previous announcement that companies investing in renewable energy will no longer qualify for relief under VCTs and EISs. There are proposed revisions to the entitlement of Entrepreneurs’ Relief under certain circumstances. The government has reaffirmed its continuing commitment to tackle aggressive tax-avoidance schemes.

In demand and undaunted– London’s prime property market looks certain to remain strong and attract international buyers in 2015, so says Simon Barnes, property guru, who has been buying and selling high end property in London’s most desirable areas for more than 20 years. In recent weeks, there has been much talk in the press about what 2015 will mean for the prime property market in central London.
Despite the predictions of many, I do not anticipate that the General Election in May 2015, a predicted increase in bank interest rates, or the potential introduction of a Mansion Tax will actually have any real impact on purchases at the ’ultra-prime’ level of the London property market.
It is my belief that, through the first six months of next year, those people buying property in the ?2m to ?3m price range may well use any uncertainty as a negotiation point.  That said, in reality buyers who do this, in my experience, tend to be looking for a convenient excuse to delay their purchase or simply pull out.
International factors which we cannot anticipate may affect the lower end of the market as they have done in the past. Throughout 2014, there has been little pattern or predictability as to who is buying property at the top end of the London market.
Although London may be protected because of these existing and emerging markets, a significant change in international buying patterns in 2015 will mean a shift in the popularity of certain types of property. Above all, the ultra-prime London property market is based on quality and, as with most things, quality will sell. We love this trilogy of delights from across the pond at The Hudson Furniture company, New York. Constructing Worlds brings together eighteen exceptional photographers from the 1930s to the present day who have changed the way we view architecture and perceive the world around us.
From the first skyscrapers in New York and decaying colonial structures in the Congo, to the glamorous suburban homes of post-war California, and the modern towers of Venezuela, The Barbican exhibition invites you on a global journey through 20th and 21st century architecture.
Featuring over 250 works, this exhibition highlights the power of photography to reveal hidden truths in our society. Point of interest:  St Andrew Undershaft was built in 1532 during the reign of Henry VIII and is unusual in surviving both the Great Fire of London in 1666 and The Blitz during the second world war.
We preview the London based interiors journalist, author and lecturer, Judith Wilson’s new book, Think Home. An inspiring guide to encouraging a considered and orderly approach to decorating the home with vibrant images from leading lifestyle photographer, Polly Wreford. The last decade has seen the widespread popularity of an understated minimalist aesthetic for interiors, a look which has been reflected in the choice of simple architectural fire surrounds and contemporary fire baskets and irons, the former usually fabricated in a Mediterranean Limestone of some description.
It’s that time of the year again, that elusive sun has finally begun to poke through leaden skies and the mercury is rising. Clever design is always inspiring and leading furniture designer,  Matthew Hilton’s Maia, which intentionally has a non-specific function,  is a perfect example. To harness a grand scale living room of an elegant Caribbean villa, Janine created several intimate seating groups.
Janine kept in mind that a house by the sea should reflect its surroundings and work in harmony with the landscape — natural materials should be used for best effect – a handsome aged stone floor provided the perfect foil for the expansive decorative details and bold ornamentation, taking the eye through the room.
The first of the seasons roses have a particularly gentle tea fragrance and lend a subtle perfume to a room; roses are ideal for more formal settings and work well  in bedrooms, drawing rooms and period hallways.
Plump heads of cool white hydrangeas accented with an abundance of rich green foliage punctuate contemporary settings in a chic easy way, use a clear glass vase to showcase their simple beauty. The public pools on 23rd Street and 60th Street were filled using filtered water from the Croton system, which was changed three times a week.But before the late Twenties, when environmental degradation of the city's rivers tainted the dozens of 'floating baths' sprinkled along the East and Hudson Rivers, New York's hot and bothered simply jumped in and swam upstream. While taking a dip in Central Park Reservoir is now illegal, it was once a popular weekend destination for families looking for heat relief.The 40-foot-deep reservoir, as well as the 18-acre lake, were used for ice-skating during the winter months and boating or swimming in the summer until 1950.
During summer months, the buildings' tiny rooms became so stifling that many children and tenement dwellers would sleep on the roof, or more frequently, on accessible fire escapes.
Jennifer Gates, 15, was pictured showing off her horse jumping skills at the weekend during an equestrian show in Palm Beach, Florida. It hosts 5,000 horses and 2,800 riders from 49 states and 30 countries.Miss Gates was competing in one of the children's jumping divisions, Equestrian Sport Productions spokeswoman Jennifer Wood confirmed to MailOnline. Her father, America's richest man, was said to have rented a 7,300 sq ft house with eight bedrooms and its own equestrian facilities for $600,000.
Bill Gates is the second wealthiest person in the world, worth $62.4billion according to Bloomberg, after Mexican telecommunications magnate Carlos Slim.
The luxurious leather recliner appealed directly to an American public ready to leave behind the austerities of the post-war years, and treat itself to a very comfortable symbol of affluence. He confirmed changes previously announced in the Autumn Statement and outlined a variety of measures in what was clearly a budget aimed at supporting those who work, save and invest. There was explicit confirmation that the Annual Allowance will not change and there were no announcements affecting tax relief on pension contributions or on tax-free cash. Under the proposed changes, investors will be able to withdraw and replace contributions made in a tax year, without compromising the Cash ISA subscription limit for that year. We are also still awaiting further confirmation of the eligibility of transferring Child Trust Funds into Junior ISAs from 6 April 2015. The higher rate tax threshold will rise to ?42,700 from 6 April 2016, rising to ?43,300 from 6 April 2017.


However, the government will review the use of deeds of variation as a means of avoiding tax. There were some technical changes announced which will affect the eligibility of companies for VCT and EIS investment but no changes to the reliefs available, and no substantial changes for the investor. We are working to understand how this ruling will be applied in practice, but it is largely in relation to individuals attempting to benefit from Entrepreneurs’ Relief without holding at least a 5% stake directly in a company carrying on a trade. With only a few weeks left in the current tax year, make sure you are maximising the opportunities, which exist.
He worked in practices which included Foster and Partners, Ian Ritchie, Troughton McAslan, Branson Coates and Ron Arad Architects before joining Alsop and Stormer in 1995, where he worked for 10 years as a director, managing, amongst others, the Peckham Library (winner of the RIBA Stirling Prize 2000), the Blizzard Building for the Queen Mary Research laboratory in Whitechapel and the Manchester Millennium Village framework plan.
She is credited with reinvigorating the store with Selfridges being voted the ‘World’s Best Department Store’ by the International Association of Department stores, twice in the last three years. He established Ben Kelly Design (BKD) in 1977, a leading Interior Design practice based in Borough Market, London. It has always been a fact that would-be buyers are inclined to cite such events as a reason for not going ahead with a purchase, or for some hard negotiating. It’s worth pointing out that this year by late summer 2014, many properties in prime central London were overpriced with greedy owners trying to cash in on the property boom. The first tier is made up of a limited number of properties in most price ranges which can be found in the right condition and perfect location and which are offered at the proper price. However properties at the very top end of ?20 million and above will continue to be popular and attract wealthy overseas buyers, because London is continually viewed as a safe haven with political stability and a sound economy. This year, I have seen interest from buyers from a very wide range of countries and this continues to be one of the London property market’s great strengths.
For example, Asian and Middle Eastern buyers, with their reliance on service staff, will want properties where working areas such as kitchens are hidden away from the main family  accommodation and which offer separate staff accommodation.  In contrast, buyers from Europe, USA and UK want genuine family homes, even if they are only intending using the property for part of the year.
So despite variables, known and unknown, anticipated and unanticipated, my view is that in 2015, the winning combination of best location, the best property and the best price will continue to sell a property. The exhibition also includes work from iconic architects including Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier, Daniel Lebeskind and Charles and Ray Eames.
More than eight hundred buildings across the capital will be revealed to visitors who would otherwise not be able to gain access to these structures. The government will top up those savings by 25%, subject to a maximum top-up of ?3,000 on a subsequent property purchase. This will be subject to further consultation in the autumn, and we will update you further when details are known. In 2004, Christophe established the architectural, landscape and urban design practice, Studio Egret West, with urban designer partner David West to offer an ethos of ‘strategy with architectural specificity; and specificity within an overall strategy’. Her creative directorship has redefined Selfridges’ role in London’s retail landscape, ushering in an increase in sales of over 50 per cent.
BKD’s groundbreaking projects range from exhibitions for the V&A, Design Museum, Crafts Council, Wellcome Trust, British Council, and The Architecture Foundation, to the innovative London-based fitness club chain Gymbox, and Factory Record’s The Hacienda in Manchester, to permanent museum interiors for The Science Museum. However, throughout the year the best properties in the best locations have continued to sell and I can see no reason for this situation changing in 2015.
The second tier consists of a large number properties located ‘on the fringe’, perhaps on the wrong side of the street, lacking key amenities or not presented in absolutely the best condition. Historically, London has benefitted from the backdrop of unrest and political and economic uncertainty experienced in other countries and I see no reason for this being any different in 2015.
Over the past 11 months, I have found buyers from areas I had anticipated, Russia, China, USA and the Middle East, but also buyers hailing from ‘new’ locations such as France, South Africa and India.
He frequently lectures at universities both nationally and internationally and sits on member advisory boards including CABE and the RIBA Trust. In November 2007 Kelly was awarded the title Royal Designer for Industry (RDI) and was on the RDI Executive Committee between 2010 and 2011. Consequently, I predict that purchases of ultra-prime property in PCL will continue to happen, underpinned by the view that the capital remains a sound investment proposition. Other markets will almost certainly emerge and my instinct tells me that two possible and largely untapped markets for 2015 could be Africa (Angola, Nigeria) and South America (Brazil).
He was Creative Director of The Architecture Foundation 2000–1 and was granted an Honorary Doctor of Design from Kingston University in 1998. As an artist he has shown at The Mackintosh Gallery, Glasgow School of Art (2010), The Stanley Picker Gallery, Kingston and the Southbank Centre.
