Doc Chat is a program series that digs deep into the stories behind the Library’s most interesting collections and highlights ways that educators can incorporate them into the classroom.

In Episode 33, NYPL’s Sara Spink and Ian Fowler discuss the 1811 Commissioners’ Map and Survey of Manhattan Island, featured in the Library’s newly opened The Polonsky Exhibition of The New York Public Library’s Treasures, and reveal how the map laid the groundwork for the future development of the city and the transformation of the island’s geography.

Educators, scholars, students, and all primary source lovers are welcome to join this lively conversation. Each 30-minute episode takes place online.
