The Traditional Steam Whistles at Pratt University, New York

Steam from rumur on Vimeo.

Pratt University, in Brooklyn, New York, has a tradition of playing a Steam whistle during the holidays.  They've kindly posted this years buildup to the amazing show - the videos presented show a bit of the dust being knocked of the equipment.  For a longer article on the topic, please visit Make Magazine 2008 on Mr. Conrad Milster's amazing endeavor, located at:   http://blog.makezine.com/archive/2008/03/steam_whistles_pratt_inst.html

This is always a most spectacular event. The whistles are just part of the fun. They open up the engine room to visitors and you are allowed to bring your own champagne
