projects by a group of former residents, complete with dozens of pictures from the past and present."
Gotham Center for New York City History,
created by the Graduate Center, the City University of New York, says the ENY site is "devoted to remembering life
in the 1960s in East New York projects."
an Internet site devoted to New York City news, politics, and policy and produced by the Citizens Union Foundation and funded by Charles H.
Revson Foundation, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, the Rockefeller Foundation, the J.M. Kaplan Fund,
and the New York Times Foundation, says the ENY Projects Web Hangout is an "interesting
site trying to recreate a community 45 years gone."

metro section, in an article entitled Life as it Was in the Projects in October, 1998.
