on the jewel-like traffic lights below or the sparkling cosmos above, he portrays the City of Angels as a haven of spare elegance and urbane stylishness, as if it were Woody Allen's Manhattan but with better weather and inviting outdoor pools. But save for savoring Danes and an L.A. cleansed of gaudy excess, there is little that is truly novel about ''Shopgirl'' . . . The film ultimately lets Mirabelle down and leaves the viewer dissatisfied. A ''Lost in Translation (Lost in Translation (film))'' drained of its wryly observed humor, ''Shopgirl'' is worth a browse.

(Image:baseball1866.JPG) In 1845, the Knickerbocker Club (New York Knickerbockers) of New York City began using Elysian Fields (Elysian Fields, Hoboken, New Jersey) in Hoboken (Hoboken, New Jersey) to play baseball due to the lack of soft grounds on Manhattan. In 1846, the Knickerbockers played the New York Nine on these grounds in the first organized game between two clubs. A plaque and baseball diamond street pavings at 11th and Washington Streets commemorate the event. By the 1850s, several Manhattan-based members of the National Association of Base Ball Players were using the grounds as their home field. With the construction of two significant baseball parks enclosed by fences in Brooklyn, enabling promoters there to charge admission to games; the prominence of Elysian Fields (Elysian Fields, Hoboken, New Jersey) began to diminish. In 1868 the leading Manhattan club, Mutual (New York Mutuals), shifted its home games to the Union Grounds in Brooklyn. In 1880, the founders of the New York Metropolitans and New York Giants (San Francisco Giants) finally succeeded in siting a ballpark in Manhattan that became known as the Polo Grounds. Outside of providing gradation to rivers and streams, the height of the Watchungs has proven useful for other reasons. *During the Revolutionary War (American Revolutionary War), General George Washington used the protection of the Watchung mountains to erect the first and second Middlebrook encampment. This position on the high ground also allowed him to monitor the area between Perth Amboy (Perth Amboy, New Jersey) and New Brunswick (New Brunswick, New Jersey) as well as to identify and disturb British movements between Manhattan and Philadelphia (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania).

Early life Monk Eastman's background is a subject of debate. The most common story, popularized by Herbert Asbury in his book ''The Gangs of New York'' says that Monk was born Edward Osterman in Williamsburg (Williamsburg, Brooklyn), Brooklyn to an affluent Jewish restaurant owner. When Monk reached maturity, the story continues, his father set him up with a pet shop where he could indulge in his hobby of raising and selling birds, but young Edward was eventually seduced by the action and easy money of Manhattan's underworld, which he went on to conquer with sheer brute force. As popular as this story may be, no public records exist to support it. What city records do tell us (as documented by crime authors such as Patrick Downey, Ron Arons, and Rose Keefe) is that Monk was born Edward Eastman in 1875 in the rowdy Corlear's Hook section of lower Manhattan to Samuel Eastman, a Civil War vet and wallpaper-hanger, and his wife Mary Parks. By the time Monk was five his father had run off and the family had been forced to relocate to the home of Mary Parks' father George Parks on the upper east side. Prison On February 3, 1904, Eastman attempted to rob a young man on 42nd Street and Broadway in Manhattan. However, the young man was being followed by two Pinkerton (Pinkerton_National_Detective_Agency) agents hired by man's family to keep him out of trouble. The agents intervened and Eastman started shooting at the agents while running away. The chased ended when Eastman was apprehended by policemen responding to the shooting. Tired of bad publicity from Eastman, Tammany Hall refused to help him this time. Later that year, Eastman was convicted and sentenced to 10 years in prison at Sing Sing penitentiary. Having passed the winter of 1652 3 among the Dutch in Manhattan and the western Indians, he was suspected of plotting with them against the English, and after a special meeting of the commissioners in Boston, in April 1653, they declared war with him, but, owing to the opposition of Massachusetts, it was not prosecuted. Meanwhile Ninigret waged war against the Long Island Indians, who had placed themselves under the protection of the English. In September 1654, the commissioners sent a message to the chief demanding his appearance in Hartford, where they were convened, and also the payment of tribute that had long been due. He refused to appear, and sent them a haughty answer. War was again declared against him, and 270 infantry and 40 horsemen were raised, and placed under the command of Major Samuel Willard, whose instructions were to go to Ninigrit's quarters, demand the tribute, and insist upon a cessation of the war with the Long Island Indians. On the approach of the troops Ninigret fled to a distant swamp, and was not pursued.
