When does it mean when someone says, If it weren't for your hospitality, we would not have known New York City? And, If it wasn't for your hospitality, we would not have known New York City?

I personally think there is a difference between the two sentences, but I don't know what that difference is.

    I am thinking that since the speaker is talking about something that happened in the past . . . . about reality . . . . that If it wasn't for your hospitality . . . is the correct way . . . .

    The examples in the link are helpful.
