A Neighborhood’s Star Turn, Courtesy of a Librarian

Seward Park Library’s Sean Ferguson, organizer of the Lower East Side Heritage Film Series, is highlighted in this terrific New York Times Article.  Ferguson, a friend of UMP, has worked with us to present “The Seward Park Branch and the Neighborhood it Serves,” to our students and supporters.  The film documents the LES neighborhood in the 1930s, ’40s and ’50s in home movies taken by librarians, capturing a Lower East Side in transition.  Ferguson shows the film at the start and end of the series, which takes place at the Seward Park Library: 192 East Broadway, NYC, the second Tuesday of each month from September — June.
