Chuck for Oct. 27th

The Whitman walking tour by Jesse Merandy was both informative and inspirational.

class notes for Oct 27

Material culture exhibits are due next week!!!

One of the themes raised during our walking tour was the layering of the present upon the past. This raises the question of what exactly is the purpose of what we are doing in this class, what, if anything, is to be learned by looking back at the […]

Crossing Brooklyn Ferry …” The Connection “

During the whole “Crossing Brooklyn Ferry” tour, the stop that actually touched me was the water taxi/ bklyn ferry stop. Our tour guides told us that back then in the 19Th century Brooklyn and the city weren’t really connected. The people that lived in Brooklyn usually stayed in Brooklyn and the people who lived in […] […]
