Max Yeston ’08 shares his work

I thought I’d share with you some of the cool interpretation devices my historic preservation studio group has been working on.  All semester we’ve been studying the Brooklyn and Queens waterfront along the East River.  Here are, in full, the podcasts to listen to when taking the East River Ferry upriver from the Wall Street stop to the East 34th Street stop. They cover the general and specific history of the Brooklyn-Queens waterfront from Brooklyn Heights up to Hunters Point in Queens. Anyone with a smart phone can access these tours from the web while on the boat. The podcasts were put together by myself and my classmate Mayank Patel, and the voiceover was done by none other than yours truly.  In addition to the podcasts, we’re making brochures that elaborate on each neighborhood along the river, and which include self-guided walking tours.  I have attached one of them.

Enjoy!
