Together with the local New York Public Library’s Branch Community Oral Program, we are collecting oral histories of people who lived and worked in the neighborhood and near the Old Bronx Borough Courthouse. Join us for the kick-off of this exciting partnership with NYPL. Adult Programming Coordinator, Alexandra Kelly, will introduce basic interview methods to the community, and conduct live interviews with luminaries from the neighborhood, which will be archived at the New York Public Library for future generations.
