Ice Cream and The North Country

Posted on Thursday, June 11th, 2009.

This week, the StoryCorps MobileBooth East left Lincoln Center and traded the bustle of midtown Manhattan for a view of the White Mountains and the sound of the Androscoggin River in the heart of New Hampshire’s North Country.

Opening Day Ice Cream Social Berlin

We kicked off a month of recording in our host city of Berlin with an ice cream social in Veteran’s Park, hosted by station partner New Hampshire Public Radio.

With cones of “Moose Tracks”-flavored ice cream, we welcomed people of all ages to see the MobileBooth and sign up to record a story. Above, StoryCorps’ Sara Esrick chats up three Berlin Junior High eighth graders.

The MobileBooth East team will be in Berlin until June 25. We look forward to listening to stories from young and old alike and to soaking up the fresh air of summer in the North Country.

  • Berlin is beautiful and Berliners have many stories to tell. It’s been a pleasure to listen to tales of all sorts from the harsh winter of ’68 to ski jumping and river driving. Keep ‘em coming Berlin!
