About The New York History Blog

New York State has one of the richest histories in the United States, a tremendous opportunity for education, economic development, and creating links to our shared past.

The New York History blog, now in its fifth year, hopes to offer an opportunity to collaborate and connect history lovers and history professionals in order to help foster a sense of shared mission and purpose among New York historians of every stripe.

Our audience are those interested in New York’s history, including lay people interested in learning more about the history of the state, history professionals interested in keeping up with what others around the state are doing, educators and academics interested in making connections to state and local history, and those concerned with historic resources more generally.

This site is the work of 20 contributors from around the state and across disciplines.

Questions, comments, and concerns should be directed to the editor John Warren.

    FB blocks a lot of posts which prevents some pages from thriving — no one can respond or share their posts. I have “Liked” some pages and then wondered why I never saw any of their posts on my FB page. Then I found out that FB was blocking their posts. If I just read posts, without responding, FB eventually blocked the posts from that page!

    Just asking someone to “Like” your FB page may not be enough. Ask them to “Like” the page and then hover over the “liked”, button on the page and click on “settings.” There are 3 options:


    Ask them to click “ALL UPDATES” from New York History Blog.
    They can also click “Get Notifications” if they want to get a notice when a new item is posted.
