This website is the culmination of a Trevor Day School Senior’s capstone “Bridge” project. Sparked by this high school student’s move to New York City amidst the subway’s state of emergency, the project explores the history of a city shaped by the way its goods and people get around. The goal of the website is to gather various narratives from various sources, weaving them together to tell the stories that so often get lost under the never-ending rush of a city that never sleeps.
