Radio Free Woodhaven – Your Queens Memories

February 5, 2016

Tonight at 10:00 PM on Radio Free Woodhaven — Woodhaven’s LIVE talk show — the Woodhaven Cultural & Historical Society will be making a pretty big announcement. If you like seeing Woodhaven in pictures, this will certainly interest you.  And we’ll also be introducing the project known as The Queens Memory Project, “a collaboration of the Archives at Queens Library and Queens College Libraries’ Department of Special Collections and Archives.”

The purpose is to collect and organize the photos, documents and memories of Queens neighborhoods. They reached out to the Woodhaven Cultural & Historical Society to try and partner up to collect as much Woodhaven material as possible. They don’t all have to be old pictures – as long as it shows and represents life in our community – as long as it’s something you think people will be interested in seeing years from now – it fits the bill.

The Queens Memory project will be our guests on the line next week — and then they will be making 2 in-person appearances in Woodhaven:

  • Wednesday, February 24th – 1 PM to 3 PM – Emanuel United Church of Christ (91st Avenue and Woodhaven Boulevard).
  • Saturday, March 5th – 12 Noon to 3 PM – Neir’s Tavern (87-48 78th St.)

At both of these events, if you bring in materials to be scanned — Pictures, Documents, etc. — the Queens Memory Project will scan them, give you back your originals, and give you the scans on a flash drive!
