Thursday, June 14, 2018

9:00 a.m.5:00 p.m.

This event repeats every weekday between 5/3/2018 and 6/14/2018.

1978: The NYC Parks/New York Times Photo Project is a colorful exhibit that features more than 60 photographs taken during the New York City newspaper strike from August to November 1978. During this period, the Parks Department hired eight New York Times photographers to document the City’s parks, resulting in over 3000 images that serve as a time capsule of a pivotal moment for New York.

“1978” was curated by Parks’ Director of Art and Antiquities Jonathan Kuhn.

Please note: The gallery is closed on Memorial Day.
