Thread: Location of the Manhattan Project

  1. #1

    Default Location of the Manhattan Project

    I want to get photos of the buildings where the research/building of the atomic bomb we're done. I know it was somewhere near Columbia University. Does anyone know the exact location?

    I can't tell you which building, but here's some info:

    Columbia was one of three universities doing research for the Army Corp of Engineers. Harold Urey headed the Columbia research at the SAM Laboratory (code for Substitute Alloy Materials).

    The Manhattan Project. A strange irony after September 11th, IMO. Makes you think...
