Answers to More from New York City – A Trivia Game

       Here are the answers to the questions from a board game from the late 1980s called New York City – A Trivia Game that I posted last Friday:

  1. What took place on March 17, 1762 in New York City? (Hint – look at the day again.) – The first St. Patrick’s Day Parade
  2. Today, King’s College is better known as? – Columbia University
  3. In 1524, a famous explorer entered New York Bay.  He was later to have a bridge named after him.  Who is he? – Giovanni Da Verrazano
  4. On October 28, 1886, what was dedicated in New York City? – The Statue of Liberty
  5. Who was executed on Long Island by the British on charges of espionage? – Nathan Hale [but based on my research, I’ll disagree with this one.  Hale spent most of that “missing week” on Long Island, but was actually captured and subsequently hanged after his return to Manhattan.  Check out more details in my novel, Nathan Hale.]

       How did you do?  Stay tuned, more to come…

    I am really loving the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility
    issues? A couple of my blog readers have
    complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks
    great in Firefox. Do you have any tips to help fix this issue?
