World War I New York Virtual Tour

The World War I New York Tour is now being offered virtually via Zoom. Come along on a tour of sites that were important to New York during World War I, from military locations, recruiting, and fundraising. Remember our honored war dead by “visiting” beautiful memorials around the city, from stunning sculpture to poignant monuments. This unique virtual tour honors the centennial of WWI (1914-1918) and is led by Kevin C. Fitzpatrick, author of the award-winning World War I New York: A Guide to the City’s Enduring Ties to the Great War. Kevin also worked with the WWI Centennial Committee for New York City and heads the WWI Historical Association – Eastern Chapter.

 

Buy tickets in advance. You will then get the login information to join via Zoom. In advance you should register for Zoom.

 

About the tour:

 

The story of WWI is a New York one. In 1917-1918 four out of five Doughboys departed from New York Harbor. The region was an important hub throughout the war as recruiting and patriotic efforts continued. Following the Armistice in 1918, more memorials were erected to WW I veterans than for any other event. On this tour explore more 30 locations in Manhattan that have ties to the Great War and learn the stories behind each.

Tour Highlights:

 

·       See where the Doughboys marched off to war;

·       Visit the locations where bond rallies and fundraisers were held;

·       See where the Army trained and raised awareness;

·       See stunning sculptures and poignant memorials;

·       Learn about the “Lost Battalion” and Harlem Hell Fighters;

·       Explore the architectural and historical stories of the buildings and monuments.

·       Learn about Central Park and Grand Central Terminal, notable buildings, memorials, and monuments.

 

About the Guide: Kevin C. Fitzpatrick has written eight books tied to New York City history and has been leading walking tours since 1999.

He is a member of the U.S. WWI Centennial Commission, the WWI Centennial Committee for New York City, and the East Coast Doughboys.
