Thanks for a productive class today. All teams are making good progress. As always, reach out with questions or concerns via email or during office hours.
Here are links to a few of the information resources we discussed:
NYC Then & Now – compare arial photographs between 1924-2018
OLDNYC.org – historical photos from the NYPL, geocoded
NYPL Map Warper – historical maps overlaid onto the contemporary street grid, especially strong for fire insurance maps; see also NYC fire insurance, topographic, and property maps
What did I forget? Let me know in the comments.
Outlines are due on 4/23 and annotated bibliographies on 4/30; please post or share your draft outline before Thursday’s meeting to get feedback from Prof. Montgomery and me. See guidelines for each assignment. The OWL offers good advice and examples for outline and annotated bibliography assignments as well.
Please take 5 minutes and fill out the mid-term survey to offer some feedback on how we can make the class better. It’s available until Tuesday 4/21.
Take care and be well, everyone.
