I was happy to read this article in the Times about ceiling fans. There’s too much AC in the world. We can’t afford. It’s not sustainable. Ironically it’s only making the planet hotter. At the very least, adding a ceiling fans to an HVAC system can seriously improve overall efficiency.

Brooklyn Technical High School

Brooklyn Tech, as it’s known, has some great stone work on its facade, with inspiring machine age iconography. The building was built from 1930-33, at the exact time as Rockefeller Center, and its exterior iconography is of the same post-crash, WPA vintage and spirit, calling people to work hard and to excel in sciences, technology, industry and American innovation. We seriously need a big ass booster shot of that stuff in this country. Read more on wikipedia… and marvel at the facilities originally housed inside for educating young New Yorkers in real trades.
