If you have a penchant for designer clothes and a budget (or credit card) that can support your shopping habits, South Park is the place to be. The selection of high-end shops is unparalleled, with unique boutiques and luxury retailers scattered throughout the neighborhood. Forget walking from one boutique to the next, however, as you might in Los Angeles or New York. In South Park, the shopping district is clustered in two main areas: SouthPark Mall and Phillips Placelarge retail centers that house numerous stores. Here, you’ll find all of the fashion staples from the Gap, J. Crew, and Ann Taylor to Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Macy’s. The neighborhood is also home to a number of local retailers that stock luxury national and international brands.
Books and Music
It’s not hard to find a Barnes & Noble, Borders, or Books-a-Million in the Queen City. And there’s nothing wrong with checking out the latest bestsellers and Top 40 CDs at these megachains, but the smaller book and music retailers are worth a look, too.
Almost every colony has left us records of pikes, beginning as early as the report of Alvaro Flores in 1578 on the status of Spanish forts. Henderson Subway Map Captain John Smith reported in 1609 that the colony at Jamestown had more pikes and swords than men to use them. The Massachusetts Bay Colony brought sixty pikes and twenty half pikes with them, almost as many as the muskets they carried. Plymouth Colony required that every town provide one half pike for every four men. The colony of New Netherland, differing from the other colonies, often noted the half pike (but not the full pike), since that was its weapon of choice from 1633 to 1673. The heavy dependence upon the pike would be a normal extension of European tactics, since the use of pikemen was the bulk of all infantry forces during the sixteenth and the beginning of the seventeenth century. But in the New World colonies, different tactics were required. As the pike was found to be ineffectual against the Native Countrys, their use was soon abandoned. In 1675, the General Court of the Massachusetts Bay Colony determined that Whereas it is found by experience that troopers & pikemen are of little use in the present war wth the Indians all pikemen are hereby required to furnish themselves wth fire armes (sic).
