The Living New Deal in Houston

Houston City Hall

We are pleased to see that the Living New Deal got a mention in the Houston Chronicle recently!  Despite its reputation as the nation’s most privatized city, Houston actually has many New Deal public works and has invested heavily in public infrastructure recently, including some terrific museums, a light rail system and more.  Here’s the story.  We especially appreciate that the story includes 25 sites photos taken, in part, from the Living New Deal online archive.

p.s. It is not true that the Living New Deal has already mapped all New Deal sites, but we hope to make that claim some day!
