Learn About NYC’s Greatest Myths, Hoaxes, & Urban Legends [Saturday, May 12]

NEW YORK CITY’S GREATEST MYTHS, HOAXES, AND URBAN LEGENDS (SAT. 5/2)
Did the Dutch really buy Manhattan Island for $24? Were the winged moonmen that made headlines in the New York Sun in 1835 for real? Are there really alligators in New York City’s sewers? Since colonial days Gotham has been an incubator for great myths, hoaxes, and urban legends. Michael Miscione, the Manhattan Borough Historian, will separate fact from fiction in this illustrated presentation.
This event is sponsored by the New York City Skeptics, an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization that promotes critical thinking and science education.
