Stop the Presses July 20, 1969

I remember it will.  At The New York Times

Location, 229 W 43rd Street, New York, New York. 10036, 30 feet below street level, the Pressroom

At about 10:30 P.M. we got the order, shutdown, stop the press.  They landed on the moon.

We were told to "go to lunch".  So I walked to Rockerfeller Center to see on a giant screen the first man to walk on the moon.

Back to work, Press Headline read "Men Land On Moon"

We ran off a few thousand copies and were told to "Stop the Press"  again.

We replaced a few plates and started up again.

Now the Headline read "Man Walks On Moon"

Again we ran off a few thousand copies only be told once again "Stop the Press"

Again we replaced a few plates and started up once again.

Now the Headline read "Men Walk On Moon"

Wow, to not only see history but to be a small part of reporting it to the world was exciting.

Below are three copies of papers I saved from that night.

That was an amazing event! You were fortunate to have a ringside seat in reporting history.
