Jonathan will bring the circa 1865 photograph depicting a “Game of Base Ball at Hoboken” which launched him into an exploration – with greater depth than any other to date – into the geography, layout, and utilization of the Elysian Fields during the height of its popularity.

Jonathan will be joined by guest host Irwin Chusid. Attendees will receive a special limited edition postcard of the historic photograph. Admission is free and refreshments will be served. Event will also be livestreamed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwJGWeWDHPA . For more information, https://www.hobokenmuseum.org/event/ev-220618-baseball/
