Fall 2016 Project – East New York & Cypress Hills


In the Fall of 2016, I and my students from New School will be collecting oral histories from long-time residents living in East New York or Cypress Hills. This is the first neighborhood to be rezoned by Mayor De Blasio’s housing plan, and the rezoning takes place along the arteries where the neighborhoods overlap. This project is my first attempt at coordinating a digital community-based project with students – both an exciting AND anxiety-producing experience – and I’m looking forward to reporting on our progress at the end of the semester!
