Photo by Scott Haefner: McKinley Dome - President William McKinley was shot under this dome in 1901, at the Pan American Exposition in Buffalo, NY. The dome was originally installed at the Temple of Music, a spectacular concert hall built for the Expostion and sadly demolished following the event. Ironically the saved dome has now been abandoned.

Bellevue from the waterfront, 1879. Proximity to the shoreline -- which once gave the original mansion here that belle vue -- was key in the early years of Bellevue, as sometimes it was the fastest way to get to the hospital when roads were less than ideal. (Courtesy NYC HHC)
