The Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum. The hangar deck. Hell’s Kitchen. The Intrepid had a crew of 3000. Some worked on the flight deck and the deck’s ‘island’ but most worked below deck. When the temperature below deck would rise, many of the crew would get in front of this huge fan, flick a switch and cool off. This practice was stopped however due to the number of men blown out to sea through the emergency doors (see bottom photo).
If you believe this, I have a bridge on the lower east side connecting Manhattan to Brooklyn for sale… The above is actually one of the four Intrepid’s screws (propellers). These screws would move massive amounts of water in order to propel the ship through the seas.
By the way, speaking of the Brooklyn Bridge, keep following my blog as I eventually visit all of the bridges connecting Manhattan to the rest of the world.
