"The Manhattan Project" Featured in New York Times

The Manhattan Project anthology

The New York Times featured AHF's latest book, The Manhattan Project,  in the Science Times section on Tuesday, October 30, 2007.  The article follows AHF advisory board member and author Robert S. Norris as he gives William Broad the tour of the Manhattan Project sites in Manhattan found in the book.  Among the highlights:

"In The Manhattan Project (Black Dog & Leventhal), published last month, Dr. Norris writes about the Manhattan Project’s Manhattan locations. He says the borough had at least 10 sites, all but one still standing. They include warehouses that held uranium, laboratories that split the atom, and the project’s first headquarters — a skyscraper hidden in plain sight right across from City Hall.

'It was supersecret,' Dr. Norris said in an interview. 'At least 5,000 people were coming and going to work, knowing only enough to get the job done.'"
