American involvement in World War I started and ended in New York Harbor. In 1917, many troops departed from the city which would be an important hub throughout the war as recruiting and patriotic efforts continued. Now on the centennial, explore the locations in New York that have ties to The Great War.

Please note: Admission is free but space is limited. To RSVP, email

Kevin C. Fitzpatrick is the author of World War I New York: A Guide to the City’s Enduring Ties to the Great War, The Governors Island Explorer’s Guide, and five other books that are all tied to New York history. He is the program director of the WWI Centennial Committee for New York City. A licensed NYC sightseeing guide, he leads history and literary tours.
