Roosevelt Island Memory Project

This is a neighborhood oral history project that works to both preserve and document Roosevelt Island's history through the stories of people who have experienced it.

This project will collect oral histories of people who have lived or worked on Roosevelt Island.

Both longtime and more recent residents are invited to share their neighborhood stories, documenting Roosevelt Island’s past and present history.

For more information about this project, please contact Sasha Jones at the Roosevelt Island branch, sashajones@nypl.org or (212) 308-6243.
