My Google Maps: Red Hook

The latest one I'm working on and it is located here. What is unique about this one is that I am including addresses of WW2 veterans. (The red crosses denote casualties, the red hazard symbols denotes wounded or prisoner of war) I first was going to use information garnered from memorial plaques located at a VFW Post and then work backwards through census data. A much more accurate source of info was obtained by old Times' listings of New York City casualties from the war.
