EVENT DETAILS

For more than two centuries, large numbers of New Yorkers have served the nation in wartime. On this walk to Vietnam Veterans Memorial Plaza and the East Coast and Korean War Veterans Memorials in Battery Park, we’ll examine how these memorials reflect changing idealizations of war memory and tribute by both the city and its veterans.

Cal Snyder is the author of Out of Fire and Valor: The War Memorials of New York City from the Revolution to 9/11. Lucy Oakley is Head of Education and Programs at NYU’s Grey Art Gallery.
