CUNY Graduate Center Collection, Murray Hill

In 1976, as the United States celebrated its Bicentennial, the Murray Hill Neighborhood Association (MHNA) organized an exhibition of images which depicted how their neighborhood had changed over the last hundred years. That exhibition, which for many years was on display at the CUNY Graduate Center, is at the heart of this digital project of 280 images, which expanded upon the 1976 materials by adding newly commissioned photographs and hiring a graduate student to research the architectural history of each site.
