The Neighborhood Stories project at the NYC Department of Records and Information Services Is Looking for Your Story

Good afternoon,

I’m writing to let you know about the Neighborhood Stories project at the NYC Department of Records and Information Services and to ask for your help in reaching out to the members of Sara D Roosevelt Park Community Coalition to invite them to participate.  Neighborhood Stories is?a storytelling initiative?that gathers oral history interviews with New York City community members and permanently preserves them in the collections of the Municipal Archives and Library. This inspiring project empowers the residents of your block to share their own rich historical narrative and personal insights on their lives and the communities that shaped them.

 

We hope you’ll share information on Neighborhood Stories at your meetings and in your communications.  I’ve included a brief announcement below, which can be used to spread the word.  Please let me know if you need any more information. Here is a link to the project website:?https://www.archives.nyc/neighborhoodstories.

Help Us Tell New York’s Neighborhood Stories 

The Neighborhood Stories project is an inspiring storytelling initiative by the NYC Department of Records & Information Services that aims to gather oral history-style interviews from New Yorkers across the five boroughs and permanently preserve them in the collections of the Municipal Archives.

Recording and preserving personal memories of life on our block is simple and accessible, thanks to a new virtual format. Whether you are a long time resident or have lived here for just a few years, you’re invited to include your own story in the archive.

Visit the Neighborhood Stories website to learn more and sign up to share your story: www.archives.nyc/neighborhoodstories.

 

 

Best regards,

 

Valerie and Elena
