Name: Author Talk: Diane Galusha on the History of Water Access in NYC
Date: October 28, 2021
Time: 6:25 PM - 8:00 PM EDT
Join historian Diane Galusha for a discussion of the vision, ingenuity, and heartbreak behind the development of NYC’s water system - one of the largest and most efficient in the world. The program will feature the stories of the engineers, politicians, contractors, and laborers (many of whom were immigrants) who built the vast network of tunnels and dams and explore the extraordinary price paid by thousands of upstate residents who were displaced by the Croton, Catskill, and Delaware reservoirs.
