Created by Rob Garber, member of the BNHG planning committee, this exhibit was on display for three months at the Bloomingdale Library, West 100th Street between Amsterdam and Columbus Avenues.
One of the oldest sets of aerial photographs of Manhattan was the centerpiece of this exhibit on view from June through August, 2023.
The photomosaic, six feet in length, showed an island that is both familiar and different from today's city. The exhibit also featured a challenge for visitors to the library: six unlabeled closeups from 1927 photographs that viewers could use to test their neighborhood knowledge.
