Did you know the "Father of Greater New York" actually lived in Worcester? This week, we discuss the salacious tale of his assassination. Our telling is sourced from a variety of archived New York Times articles, Michael Rubbinaccio's gripping text: New York's Father Is Murdered!: The Life and Death of Andrew Haswell Green, and the commentary of Worcester's top historian Bill Wallace—Executive Director of Worcester Historical Museum. (There's also a sprinkle of Wikipedia, if we're being honest.) Musical interludes by Submarine Machine. Do you have more info about the fate of Hannah Elias? DM us at @popitworcester.
