“The Land of Moses: Robert Moses and Modern Long Island” has been set for Sunday, June 10th at 2 pm at the Community Church of East Williston, Long Island, NY.
The speakers, Joshua Ruff and Jonathan Olly, are the co-curators of an upcoming exhibition on Robert Moses, which will open at the Long Island Museum of American Art, History & Carriages in Stony Brook on June 22.
Robert Moses (1888-1981) helped determine the environments in which Long Islanders continue to live. He redefined transportation infrastructure and recreational and cultural possibilities for generations of Long Islanders and visitors. His legacies range from his largely realized Long Island Sate Parks Commission blueprint in 1924 to his later career challenges and failures.
The Community Church of East Williston is located at 45 East Williston Avenue in East Williston, Nassau County, Long Island, NY.
This event is hosted by the Nassau County Historical Society. For more information visit their website.
