OSE Blog FAQ

Seeing as how we’re north of 500 blog posts (as of May 2017), it’s probably too late for a Frequently Asked Questions post, but here it is anyway.

  • This is the blog of Old Structures Engineering. Most of the posts are written by me (Don Friedman) but not all.
  • Topics include pretty much anything touching on civil engineering, history, historic preservation, and New York City, with special emphasis on topics that combine two or more of those basic issues.
  • We generally put up one post per day, skipping holidays, but that can change.
  • Posts are usually written a week or two before they are published.
  • Unattributed pictures are either ours or in the public domain.
  • Clicking on pictures usually gets you a larger version of them.
  • We don’t allow comments because we’re busy working on engineering projects and don’t have time to address¬†comments. That said, if you take the time to email us about something in the blog, we’ll respond.
  • This post will stay at the top of the heap for now. New posts will appear below.
