WHAT’S UP ON YOUR NYC BLOCK?

MyBlockNYC.com is an interactive online mapping project that stitches together a holistic portrait of life in the city through a series of intimate video accounts. Participants capture moments, places, and stories that are meaningful to them—on smartphones, digital cameras, or, in the case of a pilot program in a group of New York City public schools, donated flipcams—and then upload the clips to the project website, where they are coded according to geographical location and integrated into a map of the city. Videos are one minute long, filmed entirely in one block of New York, and will be shown at the MoMA throughout November.
