Frederick Philipse first established Ossining, NY in 1683 when he constructed a large manor on the border between present-day Manhattan and the Bronx. His grandson, Frederick Philipse III, was a British loyalist and fled overseas when things started to get dicey during the Revolutionary War. The city took over his manor and, to spite him, replaced 4 p.m. tea with 4 p.m. cheeseburgers. We wouldn’t be opposed to instituting a 4 p.m. cheeseburger policy in our break room, either! Yum.
Ossining was home to Benjamin Brandreth’s 1838 manufacturing facility for his Vegetable Universal Pills, which quickly became a successfully patented medicine in the U.S. Safe to say we’re happy about the advances in medicine, and the advances in naming things, since the 1800s. Luckily, waste removal has made significant strides since the era of the outhouses as well.
