Last week the Museum of the City of New York announced #CovidStoriesNYC. The Museum has asked New Yorkers to share their stories as experienced through the lens of this COVID-19 crisis by posting images on Instagram using the hashtag #CovidStoriesNYC, and tag @museumofcityny. MCNY is interested in seeing how the entire city, across all five boroughs, is viewing this moment in our collective history. For over a century, Museum of the City of New York has been documenting New York City’s stories regardless of the nature they take. At any given moment, there are a myriad of stories playing out on our streets, public and private institutions, and in our homes. 

Untapped New York founder Michelle Young will interview Museum of City of New York's Prints and Photographs curator Sean Corcoran, in this live virtual interview, which will conclude with a Q&A with Insiders. We will share a selection of images Corcoran has curated from the submissions so far. 

This live talk is organized exclusively for Untapped New York's Insiders and will be broadcasted via Zoom. Insiders will have the ability to ask questions to Sean in a Q&A section at the end. Can't join this live virtual talk? Don't worry, a video of the talk will be made available to all our Insiders afterwards in the Virtual Content section of our website.
