Hadleys presentation was designed to make the geology of the borough accessible to the lay person while presenting scientific facts about the boroughs early days.
Highlights of the slide/video presentation included recent slides of Alaskan glaciers and an autumn video aerial tour of the Terminal Moraine from Staten Islands Todt Hill, across the Verrazano Narrows Bridge on Marathon Sunday, over Prospect Park and into Queens.
The lecture took place at GAHS on June 2. The historical society is located in Quinns Gallery, 35-20 Broadway in Long Island City. For more information, call the historical society at 718-278-0700 or go to www.astorialic.org.
