Brood II Cicada Events in Staten Island and Manhattan back in 2013

These photos are of Brood II Cicada Events in Staten Island and NYC back in 2013. Technically the only photo from Manhattan is the cicada mosaic in the subway near the American Museum of Natural History. Most of these photos are from Staten Island Museum exhibits. The Staten Island Museum is the home of William T. Davis’ cicada collection, which numbers over 25,000 specimens. Ed Johnson was the curator of the collection at the time.

Staten Island has Brood II Magicicada. Manhattan has none, but may have in the past.
