Chinatown Legacy Project

This oral history project is part of the NYPL Community Oral History Project. This project will collect oral histories of people who have lived or worked in Chinatown neighborhood and train community members to conduct these interviews.  Current, previous, and longtime residents and those who have worked in the Chinatown neighborhood are invited to share their neighborhood stories, documenting the past and present history of these communities.  Interviews will be available in a preservation archive at The Milstein Division for U.S. History, Local History, and Genealogy, as well as on the New York Public Library website.  

Please contact NYPLOralHistory@nypl.org or 212-621-0552 with any questions.
