The MobileBooth at Lincoln Center
Although StoryCorps’ offices are located in Brooklyn, and we have a permanent StoryBooth at Foley Square in Lower Manhattan, this month the StoryCorps MobileBooth is in the midst of its first ever visit to New York City. A MobileBooth is an Airstream trailer outfitted with a recording studio that travels the country year-round collecting stories.
Since our arrival last week, we have heard love stories in Central Park, long gone delis of the neighborhood, the first days of Lincoln Center, the busker beginnings of a circus, and the rise of the Upper West Side skyline. We have heard from dancers, opera singers, student scientists, accountants, lawyers, writers, composers, teachers, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, computer programmers, unemployed people, nurses, doctors, therapists, trekkies, and many more to come to come.
