The Queens Memory Project is a dynamic testament of collective memory for the residents of Queens, New York; the most diverse county in the United States. The interviews and archival records gathered for the Project from many sources document the borough’s people and places; their differences, their changes over time, and their strong ties to one another.


Join us to share your memories for The Queens Memory Project! Graduate students from St. John’s College’s Public History program will be gathering stories from Museum visitors Fridays 2-5pm and Saturdays 12-3pm in the Panorama of the City of New York.


Share your connections to the streets and neighborhoods of Queens and New York City, and your story will be contributed to the archive at queensmemory.org.


In partnership with the Queens Memory Project, St. John’s Public History program. The Queens Memory Project is a collaboration of the Archives at Queens Library and Queens College Libraries’ Department of Special Collections and Archives. Thank you to Dr. Kristin M. Szylvian and the volunteering students in her oral history class at St. Johns University.


Please help us care for the Panorama by adopting a memory and a building through our Adopt-A-Building program:


Free with Museum admission (suggested admission) and open to the public.
