Your Anecdotal Census: A People's History of the New York City Area 2000-2010

We couldn't make a page for every single county with WNYC listeners, but we'd still love to hear from you. Tell us about change that matters in your community. Here are some possible questions to answer. Add you story to the comments below!

How is your community different today than it was 10 years ago?

Who's moving in and who's moving out? 

How has the housing boom/housing bust changed your community?

How have the politics of your community changed? If power has shifted in your community, how and why?

How has 9/11 changed your community? 

Do you have a story about change in your own life over the last decade that you think represents a larger trend?

What's an untold story of change in your community that needs to be told?

Hi Brian. Love your show!
For the past ten years, Rockland residents have become increasingly
interested in fresh, local, organic food as evidenced by the numerous
farmers’ markets that have sprouted up around the County. The Rockland
Farm Alliance has taken this interest to the next level and made
residents aware that small-scale agriculture is still possible even in
largely built-up Rockland. John McDowell of the RFA has encouraged
people to consider all sorts of leftover parcels as potential farming
sites: land owned by institutions, office park lawns and schools.
Imagining a farm on a 2 or 5 acre parcel makes locally produced food
within the realm of possibility.
