Walking piece details
Walks happen by appointment in pairs and both people must be Mott Haven residents. Each walk is guided by a participant in this project. Together, the guide and the other walker listen on headphones to an edited selection of oral histories as they walk through Mott Haven. They hear stories from the 1930s to the present, about kittens and wars and fashion and home and food and migration and parenting and more. After each walk or ride, the pair share a meal and discuss what they heard.
