Brooklyn in Love and at War

History of World War Two Told Through Letters

BLDG92 – The Brooklyn Navy Yard Center

Have you ever wanted to see these letters in person and not just online? Now BLDG_92_Tumblr_image_biggeryou can at BLDG92 – The Brooklyn Navy Yard Center! Two of Sylvia’s letters are on display along with other exciting artifacts from women who were involved with the Navy Yard during WWII! What I find most exciting about this is that these letters are now being shown just blocks away from where they were written.

Go to (twitter: @bldg92, or to learn details about visiting hours. They have exciting and interactive displays that will show you what has been going on behind the Navy Yard walls all these years!

In honor of Valentine’s Day Alex and Sylvia’s love letters are being spotlighted by BLDG92 this week, so stay tuned this week as I write more about the letters that are currently on display:
