CityTech’s Anne Leonard and Peter Spellane present research on Mapping the Chemical History of the Newtown Creek

On October 17 CityTech’s Anne Leonard (Library) and Peter Spellane (Chemistry)  presented their research on Using Old Maps and New Methods to Discover the Early Chemicals and Petroleum Industries of Newtown Creek in New York City. It was the inaugural event in BWRC’s new preBar series, a way for CityTech faculty and staff to share their research in progress about the Brooklyn waterfront.

The presentation of their research  (portions of which have been published in the Journal of Map & Geography Libraries: Advances in Geospatial Information, Collections & Archives) was supplemented by historical maps from the New York Public Library

Below are some photos of this new way that BWRC is helping to support and promote faculty research at City Tech:
