Brooklyn oral history

People talk a lot about Brooklyn changing, but to understand what the change is, one must understand what it’s changing from. To that end, the Brooklyn Public Library has undertaken over the past year an oral history project called Our Streets, Our Stories, whose audio files are shared on a Tumblr and on SoundCloud.  The participants in Our Streets, Our Stories are senior Brooklynites who share their memories of what their neighborhood was like growing up, or when they moved here, or how it’s changed over the years.
