Touring Roosevelt Island - 75 Years Ago Today

An article published 75 years ago today by the New York Times offers an interesting time capsule view of then Welfare Island. I have only posted here a few measly snippets, which truthfully don't even start the tour, but if you subscribe to the NYT you should have full access to the article. Sorry not trying to be an advertisement.

  1. I love the choice of wording the author used: "colony" and "reservation". Priceless. This atricle is a great find. Thanks. Btw, I would love to see maps of RI from that time. Would the RIHS have some?
