You can be part of Queens history.
Queens Memory is an ongoing program supported by Queens Library and Queens College, CUNY, designed to collect stories, images, and other evidence of life in the borough of Queens.
These records will get a permanent home in the Archives at Queens Library, and are featured on the Queens Memory website where newly added materials connect with historic facts.
Flushing Town Hall is proud to partner on this project this summer, and serve as a venue where you can present your stories. Please join us this weekend – on Saturday from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM and on Sunday, August 7 from 2:00 PM and 4:00 PM (when we hold our Visual Arts Members’ Exhibition: World within a World).
When you visit us, we encourage you to bring your photographs, postcards, and other Queens memorabilia. The Queens Memory team will be on site, and will scan these items (and they will save them to a flash drive that you can take home with you, too!).
To date, more than 80 Queens Memory events have been held since 2013, and hundreds of oral histories from Queens residents – from two dozen countries of origin – have been collected.
