On Monday we meet at 10 a.m. at the Brooklyn collection at the Brooklyn Public Library, Central Library at Grand Army Plaza. The 2 and 3 trains stop at Grand Army Plaza, and the B41 bus stops across the street from the library entrance at Flatbush Avenue and Grand Army Plaza. The Brooklyn Collection is located on the 2nd floor of the library. Bring sketchbooks/notebooks, pencils, and your phones or cameras to document the primary sources in a variety of media — photos, newspaper clippings, maps, manuscripts — that we’ll study.
Site reports for the NYPL map collection visit are due on Wednesday, October 28 posted to the OpenLab. Don’t forget to post your post-site-visit reflections!
See you Monday!
