A collaboration with the NYC Department of Records and Information Services, the Below the Grid Lab, and the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU, in association with miLES and FABnyc.
What would have happened if protesters had not been successful and Robert Moses was able to build the Lower Manhattan Expressway (LOMEX) through downtown Manhattan? We revisit that fate-filled moment of New York City’s past to glean the issues that are still with us in today’s battles over displacement, loss, and change. In the Shadow of the Highway: Robert Moses’ Expressway and the Battle for Downtown will be on view May 9-15, 2016 at 103 Allen Street. Viewing hours are Monday-Thursday, 11AM-6PM and Friday-Sunday, 12PM-9PM. Two companion tours are also planned for the week. Read more about the exhibition which was previously on view at the NYC Records Visitor Center.
