buildings date back to as far as 1909, such as the attractive red-roofed Big School. Another prominent feature is said to be the Big Tree, a raintree in front of the East Wing which is considered to be as old as the school itself.

heart of the Arts District) and the 29th Avenue and Johnson Street area. Neighborhood bars were and still are a prominent feature of the community. Of particular note are Nye's (named the "Best Bar in America" by Esquire Magazine), Gasthof zur Gemütlichkeit Mario's Keller Bar, and Tony Jaros' River Garden. The new orientation of Northeast Minneapolis to welcome "outsiders" is perhaps best seen in the 1991 Hennepin Avenue Bridge. The new suspension bridge is styled after the first permanent bridge across the Mississippi River (at the same site), also a suspension bridge. The stretch of Central Avenue between 18th Avenue and 27th Avenue is more mixed in its redevelopment. Since 2000, several major new mixed-use developments have been made (and more are in development), and many new restaurants, mostly featuring foreign cuisines, have joined an already eclectic mix. Specialty food markets are also a major feature of the area, including major Latin American, South Asian, and Middle Eastern markets and the Eastside Food Co-op. However, many retail spaces continue to alternate between vacancy and short-lived retail, and much of the older physical infrastructure has become run down. The revitalization has also spread into neighboring Columbia Heights. Much of which can be attributed to the Heights Theater. Some new coffee shops and eateries have popped up on the Minneapolis side of 37th Avenue NE. The Johnson Street Quarry, an abandoned brownfield site bounded by Johnson Street on the west, 18th Avenue on the north, New Brighton Boulevard on the east, and I-35W on the south, was remediated in 1996 and the Quarry Shopping Center opened a year later with big box stores such as Rainbow Foods (in 2014 converted to Cub Foods), Target (Target Corporation) and Home Depot.

Jocotitlán

Latinoamericano de la Comunicación Educativa language Spanish accessdate February 4, 2011 rising 1,300 meters above valley floor. The volcano developed during the Pleistocene of andesitic-to-dacitic lava flows. The most prominent feature of the volcano is a horseshoe-shaped escarpment open to the northeast that formed as a result of gravitational failure of the summit during the early Holocene. The resulting debris-avalanche deposit covers an eighty km 2 area to the northeast, although much of soils all around contain volcanic residues. The last known eruption occurred about 700 years ago, but there is still a possibility of it reactivating and should be monitored. Category:Municipalities of the State of Mexico Category:Populated places in the State of Mexico The earliest major civilization of the state is Teotihuacan, with the Pyramids of the Sun and Moon being built between 100 BCE and 100 CE. Between 800 and 900 CE, the Matlatzincas established their dominion with Teotenango as capital. This city is walled with plazas, terraces, temples, altars, living quarters and a Mesoamerican ball game court.In the 15th century, the Aztecs conquered the Toluca and Chalco valleys to the west and east of the Valley of Mexico respectively. Part of the Toluca Valley was held by the P’urhépechas (P'urhépecha) as well. Other dominions during the pre-Hispanic period include that of the Chichimecas in Tenayuca and of the Acolhuas in Huexotla (Texcoco, Mexico State), Texcotizingo and Los Melones. Other important groups were the Mazahuas in the Atlacomulco area. Their center was at Mazahuacán, next to Jocotitlán mountain. The Otomi (Otomi people)s were centered in Jilotepec.

Sydney Ferries

during the games. Ferries Sydney Ferries provide ferry services from nearby Meadowbank (Meadowbank, New South Wales) to the City (Sydney) and Parramatta (Parramatta ferry wharf, Sydney). Circular Quay is a major Sydney transport hub, with a large ferry (Sydney Ferries), rail (CityRail) and bus (Sydney Buses) interchange. The Cahill Expressway is a prominent feature of the quay, running from the east, over the elevated railway station (Circular Quay railway station) to join the Sydney Harbour Bridge in the west. Transport Public transport in the region includes trains, buses, ferries and light rail. CityRail's Inner West railway line runs from Central station, largely running south of Parramatta Road to Strathfield and then to Liverpool. The Northern railway line (Northern railway line, Sydney) follows the same route to Strathfield and then branches off to the north to Hornsby, with stops at North Strathfield, Concord West and Rhodes. There are various bus routes provided largely by Sydney Buses.The Bankstown line provides train services to suburbs such as Erskineville,St Peters,Marrickville,Campsie and Bankstown. Sydney Ferries operates services in the inner harbour and Parramatta river. There is also the Metro Light Rail which runs from Central to Lilyfield, via Pyrmont and Glebe. right thumb 250px A Manly Beach sunset (Image:ManlyBeachSunset.OGG) Travelling to Manly from Sydney's main ferry terminal, Circular Quay, takes 30 minutes by ferry. The Corso, a pedestrian plaza and one of Manly's main streets for shopping and dining, runs from the ferry (Sydney Ferries) wharf and harbour beach, across the peninsula to Manly Beach, where it marks the boundary between North Steyne and South Steyne. The only other noteworthy event was in 1939 when she overshot the wharf at Circular Quay and went aground in soft mud. Although she ripped through the buffer stop, no damage was done to her. It took two tugs to pull her free. 200px right thumb Pyrmont Bridge, which the ferry collided with (Image:PyrmontBridgeSydney1 gobeirne.jpg) A ferry operated by Sydney Ferries (w:Sydney Ferries) crashed into a whale-watching ship before hitting the Pyrmont Bridge (w:Pyrmont Bridge) in Darling Harbour (w:Darling Harbour) at around 1 PM AEDT (w:Time in Australia) today.
