My friend Steve Morse just wrote to tell me about a lecture he is giving via Zoom November 18th.
The talk is on Wednesday November 18 at 2 PM Eastern Time. It is titled "The History of the Geography of New York City." The talk describes the five boroughs and the five counties, and how they came about. It also goes into detail on the history of Brooklyn and of Queens.
The talk is free but you have to register. The details for registering can be found at https://jewishgen.org/live
