Help New York City Records Tell Your Harlem Neighborhood Story

The Neighborhood Stories project is an inspiring storytelling initiative that aims to gather oral history-style interviews from New Yorkers from Harlem to Hollis.

That’s New Yorkers across the five boroughs and permanently preserve them in the collections of the Municipal Archives.

Recording and preserving personal memories of life in Harlem is simple and accessible, thanks to a new virtual format.

Whether you are a Harlem native or have lived here for just a few years, you’re invited to include your own neighborhood story in the archive.
