The LaGuardia and Wagner Archives was established in 1982 to collect, preserve, and make available primary materials documenting the social and political history of New York City, with an emphasis on the mayoralty and the borough of Queens. The Archives serves researchers, journalists, students, scholars, exhibit planners, and policy makers examining the history of Greater New York. The Archives also produces public programs exploring that history.

On this tour, attendees will be invited to our main storage area and shown artifacts and records from our many collections, which include the New York City Council, Steinway & Sons, and Queens Local History, in addition to material from all of the City's 20th century mayors. Attendees are also encouraged to view the Archives' many exhibitions in the College's building.
