Fall Open House

Posted on Thursday, November 20th, 2008.


On Monday, November 17th, the Lower Manhattan StoryBooth opened its doors to the public, inviting area organizations and passersby to learn more about the StoryCorps project and tour the StoryBooth.

Visitors were offered donut holes, hot cider, and literature on StoryCorps and our upcoming National Day of Listening. Eight invitees: Museum of Chinese in America, South Street Seaport Museum, National Parks Service, African Burial Ground, Tsingtao, Charles Wang Health Center, Eldridge Street Synagogue, NYPD and about four times as many curious pedestrians stopped long enough to hear a StoryCorps pitch, add their names to our mailing list, and treat their ears to some New York stories. We witnessed the fruits of our labor right away when a NYC Parks & Recreation employee was spotted spreading the word to people on the opposite side of the park.

  • Wrong “it’s” in the first sentence. Sorry, I’m a stickler.

    I love what you are doing, StoryCorps – keep up the good work!
