The NYPL is a proud contributor to a stunning new virtual exhibition called Leaving Europe: A new life in America. Created by the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) and Europeana, the exhibition tells the story of European emigration to the United States during the 19th and 20th centuries. The virtual exhibition uses photographs, manuscripts, broadsheets, paintings, letters, audio, government documents and other unique materials to chart people’s journeys across the European continent and their settlement in the United States. It is an incredible look into our past and one that we highly suggest you take a look at!
Today in celebration of Patrick Harbron’s upcoming Rock n’Roll photography exhibition opening May 10 at The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, we are going to go with this photo of The Boss from 1984. It was GLORY DAYS for Bruce in ‘84 as he had just released his iconic album BORN IN THE USA, was dancing on stage with Courtney Cox and was basically the biggest rock star on the planet (though Michael Jackson may argue with that). Glory days indeed.
