Virtual New York

Back in 2003, when it was cutting-edge to learn Adobe Flash, I had the good fortune to work at the American Social History Project/Center for Media and Learning on the Virtual New York web site.  We worked to research and curate digital exhibits on the theme of disaster in New York, and we scanned hundreds of items from the Seymour B. Durst Old York Collection, then housed at The Graduate Center of the City University of New York (now at Columbia University). I researched and wrote most of the content for the pop-up on NYC Water and the exhibit on the Great Fire of 1835, the latter of which afforded me the pleasure of programming in, yes, Adobe Flash. (Note that the site has not been updated since 2006, so you are likely to find missing plug-ins and phantom links.)
