Did anybody have any relatives, who were civil defense wardens in Brooklyn, during World War Two? I was told that they used to go around to the various neighborhoods at night, and tell people to put their lights out. I don't know how often those drills were held; however, there was a concern of air raid attacks over NYC, during the war. The Statue of Liberty was not lit up, and there were even anti-aircraft guns on top of the Williamsburgh Savings Bank building, as well as in the Coney Island area. The Brooklyn Army Terminal was very busy during the war, as was the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
