NY Historical Society - WWII & NYC: The Big Apple Goes to War

Join New-York Historical Society for WWII & NYC: The Big Apple Goes to War, a live, virtual journey through history on September 4, 4-5pm, as Museum docents/curators answer your questions and walk you through a slideshow of objects and imagery via Zoom.

During World War II, New York City produced everything from battleships to brassieres, and more than three million troops and over 63 million tons of supplies passed through New York Harbor en route to the battlefield. In this interactive virtual presentation, hear little-known stories such as how a group of German saboteurs landed on Long Island only to take the LIRR in the wrong direction, and why a portion of the FDR Drive is built atop rubble from Bristol, England.
