Feeding the City: The Unpublished WPA Manuscript
Feeding the City offers a behind-the-scenes look into an extraordinary project and documents the painstaking work Federal Writers’ Project authors undertook to provide a complete picture of New York City as part of global food systems.
Exhibited for the first time are examples of the research and original manuscripts, galley proofs, and a sampling of the diverse types of material collected by the researchers.
The exhibit is open to the public through March 2019 M, T, W, F from 9-4.30; Thursdays 9-7; Saturdays 9.30-12.30.
31 Chambers St. is a public building and requires all visitors to pass through security.
The Deptartment of Records and Information Services is also hosting monthly programs and a Feeding the City book club. Sign up at Doris_Events.eventbrite.com.
