Greetings, folks! I just put a pair of new episodes up over on the Bookworm History YouTube channel. The first is called “Water for New York City” and is all about New York’s early attempts at creating a sustainable water source. What do street gangs, fatal duels, and pastoral parks have to do with New York’s water supply? Click the title card below to find out!
Next, I decided to do some searching outside of the library and set out to find any remaining pieces of the Old Croton reservoirs in Manhattan. It’s a little different from my normal programming, but I hope you enjoy it!
I’ve been working on these projects for over a month now and it’s been a lot of fun and a lot of work. Check them out, let me know what you think, and, as always, thanks for stopping by!
