Enjoy a sampling of images from the New-York Historical Society’s exhibition WWII&NYC. NYHS has installed more than 300 objects throughout the building—artifacts, paintings, maps, models, photographs, posters, and other graphic materials, film footage, music, radio broadcasts, and newly recorded eyewitness accounts—that testify to New York’s mobilization for World War II and give a feel for life in the city at the time. The exhibition runs through May 2013. More information visit the New York Historical Society’s Website.
