During the fall semester of 2011 I had the privilege of assisting Project Director Natalie Milbrodt on the Queens Memory Project. This project aims to record and preserve contemporary history across the borough of Queens, New York City. It’s a digital archive, but its public face is a website featuring interviews and photos documenting the lives of contemporary Queens residents. These stories and images are presented alongside digitized historical photographs, maps, news clippings and other rare archival records.
