Living New Deal NYC Chapter: Historical Signs Project

In 2020, the Living New Deal NYC Chapter began a collaboration with the NYC Parks to install new signage at New York City public facilities that were built in 1930s by New Deal agencies. Limited evidence remains today of the accomplishments of the New Deal in New York City. To fill this gap in the city’s history, 22 new historical marker signs including a mention of their New Deal provenance, have been installed at all 11 pools through NYC Parks’ Historical Signs project.
