Washington Square Park Documentary Resources

I enjoy spending time in libraries and archives. I've engaged with librarians, archivists, and material resources to complete a variety of projects. One example is the online tree map of Washington Square Park. The data in the map came from the NYC Parks' Map Archives in Queens. Another example is an essay I wrote about the Next Epoch Seed Library published by Urban Omnibus. I interviewed the founders Ellie Irons and Anne Percoco, and participating in in a couple of their workshops.

Today - and this post will be updated as new resources are discovered - I share documentary resources (excluding books) pertaining to Washington Square Park, including Minetta Brook. Please indicate omissions in the comments section.
