You would never know you are in NY!

Broad Channel, Queens and Travis Staten Island – with Kevin Walsh

Spend an evening with Forgotten NY webmaster Kevin Walsh on Monday, March 7th, who will be showing scenes from recent trips to Travis, Staten Island and Broad Channel, Queens, where the NYC skyline is a far-off vision on the horizon.

These are two small towns within the big city were shaped by the linoleum industry and oyster fishing, respectively, and they present sights that are unique to New Yorkers used to the clangor and bustle of workaday existence…

These programs are supported by public funds from the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs.

Additional support provided by the membership of the Greater Astoria Historical Society.

Fee: FREE GAHS members, $5 to the public
