History in the making – 3/22

We’d like to give a big thank you to Kevin Walsh for giving us a generous shout-out on his site Forgotten NY. Most of you I’m sure are familiar with this great site, the ultimate investigative New York history site that specializes in the unique and sometimes unknown corners of the city. And if you haven’t already, go out and find the book of the same name. It’s invaluable for curious New Yorkers….
