World War II & NYC: New York Historical Society Exhibit

How wonderful that an exhibit has opened at the New York Historical Society on World War II & NYC.  This exhibit will be open until May 27, 2013.  The exhibit has four sections:

1. New York Before Pearl Harbor, 1933–41

2. The New York Home Front, 1942–45

3. Going to War, 1942–45

4. Victory and Loss, 1945

Be sure to explore the site if you cannot attend.  Or explore before you go to the exhibit so you can xero in on exhibits that more interest you.

This site has many wonderful photos.
