At the New-York Historical Society, our librarians, curators and conservators aren’t the only ones who get to have all the fun. Though we’re closed for renovations, our high school interns have been hard at work researching our collections. And they have the blog to prove it! On their Tumblr site the interns have been blogging about their summer projects, from researching the history of the Bronx to bathroom graffiti to the architecture of Grand Central Terminal. Want to be an intern? Apply here and you could be helping with research next semester.
