Nueva York is an exhibition and education project on the history of Latinos in New York from 1624 through World War II. Modeled on the New-York Historical Society’s two-year initiative on slavery in New York, the project will tell the little-known story of how Spanish-speaking people and the Spanish-speaking world came to play a critical role in the City’s prosperity. The project will also advance understanding of the City of New York’s continuing demographic transition. Nueva York entails a multi-media exhibition, a catalogue featuring new scholarship, public programs and education materials for K–12 teachers. Click here to view the online exhibition.

Student and Class Visit

Teaser: 

We ask that students at the high school level or younger visit the Patricia D. Klingenstein Library with an adult, such as a teacher or parent, and that the teacher or parent call ahead to discuss briefly the nature of the student's project with a reference librarian. The Klingenstein Library's research collections are not geared primarily to school history projects and students should undertake secondary source research prior to visiting this library. Please contact the Education Department if you're a school teacher and would like to bring your class to the New-York Historical Society.

Teachers of college and graduate school classes who would like to schedule a class visit to the Klingenstein Library should contact Nina Nazionale at nnazionale@nyhistory.org
