New, 4 comments

In honor of the 70th anniversary of the Manhattan Project?World War II's secret operation to build an atomic bomb?the Atomic Heritage Foundation and the Carnegie Corporation partnered on a new site full of information about the New York City locations used for the operation. The list includes the Woolworth Building, which served as the headquarters for the Kellex Corporation, created to mask the M.W. Kellogg Company's involvement in the Manhattan Project, and the project's first headquarters at Flushing Airport. Then, of course, there's Robert Oppenheimer's childhood home at 150-155 Riverside Drive, where his family occupied the entire 11th floor. Click through for the full map.
