About Us

OUR STREETS, OUR STORIES is a project of the Brooklyn Public Library's Department of Outreach Services that seeks to explore the Brooklyn that is and was, from the words of the community that lives here. Our hope is to create neighborhood-specific history archives based around interviews with Brooklyn residents. We seek to not only witness the change taking place all around us, but also to record and preserve the history of our neighborhoods before that history is forgotten. *Nominee, 2016 & 2018 Guides Association of New York City Apple Awards, Outstanding Achievement in Radio Program/Podcast
