In November, Kelli O’Toole will take the audience on a visual journey of New York City – as seen through the Municipal Archives’ collection of “tax photos.” Taken between 1939 and 1941 by the Works Progress Administration and Department of Taxation, these images offer unique views of every block and lot across the five boroughs. Discover the historical significance of this collection and learn how you can explore the old neighborhood virtually.Buy tickets/get more info now
