The COVID-NYC Documentary Project has built a digital directory of the many efforts to historically document New York City’s experience with the COVID-19 pandemic. Our directory is housed on the website of the Gotham Center for New York City History at the CUNY Graduate Center.
If you have a project to share, let us know. To create a consistent body of information, we have attached a short Word document. Please fill it out and send it to GothamCenter@gc.cuny.edu as a Word attachment.
To give your project a compelling presentation online, please send us a digital version of your logo, a digital photograph of your institution, or a digital image of something that represents your collection in the form of a high-resolution jpeg. Please send this image in its own attachment separate from the above form.
