In NYC this weekend and was able to schedule a visit to the General Society of Mechanics & Tradesman building to see the Larry Weingarten collection water heater collection and the lock/key collection. The collections are very good, I particularly liked the samples of water heater tank sediment, amazing the variety of colors and textures based on region.  

I think the society building stole the show though, it would be worthwhile visit just to tour the building with its beautiful interior details. 

Everyone we met at the society was very gracious and informative of the work of the society along with the building collections and library. 

Five stars, highly recommend.  B)

    Thankyou @PC7060 , Dan and I did most of the setting up. You can see his artistry in the arrangement! Glad you liked the sediment. It has stories to tell!

    Yours, Larry

    I'm so glad you got to visit. It really is a magical place, filled with history. Did you happen to notice the skull of Gibbs the Pirate? He was the last pirate of the Caribbean to be hanged in NYC.
    Retired and loving it.

    Pirates skull! Nope I’m afraid we missed that. Pretty wild. I could have spent another couple hour poking around but my lovely wife had other plans for the rest of the afternoon.   :)

    @Larry Weingarten - you and @DanHolohan did a great job with the format.  I was there my wife and another couple who were really impressed at the variety of the systems and the ornate presentation. 

    My wife asked about the Carlson-Holohan award so I described Dan and Gil’s work to promote understanding of hydronic systems. Their eyes did start to glaze over when I attempted to explain the concept of PONPC so I kept it short!  :D
