NY Times article on Direct Me NYC: 1940

An editorial in the New York Times  this weekend applauded the NYPL’s Milstein Division for their terrific interactive website Direct Me NYC: 1940, which provides access to digitized 1940 telephone directories from the five boroughs of New York City and other powerful search tools.   They highlighted the Share Your Story feature that allows anyone to insert a personal anecdote about a person or place listed in the directories that can be read by all.
