Listen to a lecture by historian, author and former Newsday reporter Bill Bleyer to learn why pirates like Captain Kidd were attracted to Long Island at the turn of the 18th century and how a visit by Kidd to Gardiners Island led to him dying on the gallows in London. Discover why Long Island was so attractive to bootleggers during Prohibition that it became known as Rum Row and was frequented by bootleggers like William “The Real McCoy” McCoy and gangsters like Dutch Schultz. Please register ahead of time to join us via Zoom at the time of the program.
