World War I New York: A Guide to the City’s Enduring Ties to the Great War

April 4, 2017 | 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

$10 / Free for Museum Members

In 1917, one million soldiers, sailors, and Marines departed New York and headed to France to fight in World War I. On the centennial of the United States’ involvement in the war, join Kevin C. Fitzpatrick, author of World War I New York: A Guide to the City’s Enduring Ties to the Great War to learn about New York’s wartime role and monuments, with a special focus on transit-related locations and stories. Come view items from the Transit Museum’s collection that help tell the story of how the city’s transit system both helped and was shaped by the war effort.

Books are available for preorder with your ticket to the event. A limited number of books may be available for purchase at the Transit Museum on the evening of the event.
