Help write your neighborhood's history! Send us your memories of growing up there, or the experience of moving to (or leaving) the neighborhood, or your analyses of how it changed over time. Recount the good stuff and the difficult parts alike. We want to develop a body of data on which historians can draw. Please include the neighborhood's name in your topic title when posting.

Read or seen an interesting news story regarding New York City's history? About, say, a new historical discovery? Or a particularly telling (or wrongheaded) historical reference made by a politician? Or an item dealing with historical preservation or presentation? Call it to our attention (URL's would be handy if available, or cut and paste an excerpt) and offer your reflections.
