The Long Island History Project

It’s a long island with a long history. Want to hear it? Interviews with historians, scholars, authors and anyone with a story to tell and a passion for this unique region of New York.

We travel this week to the Adirondacks (virtually speaking) to talk with John Warren, founder and publisher of New York Almanack. Formerly known as the New York History Blog, the Almanack delivers stories and information about all aspects of New York State history as well as the Adirondacks region.

John has pursued history in many forms, including his degree in Public History and his work producing documentaries for the History and Discovery channels. Through the Almanack, he provides a trailhead that can lead you to every corner and era of the state, from Freedomland in the Bronx of the 1960s to the Revolutionary War Forts at Canajoharie.

We also talk about researching in old newspapers, Ken Burns, and the upstate view of Long Island.
