The New York Public Library has sought to preserve alternative publications since its beginnings in the late 19th century. One of the first of its kind, the Library’s Alternative Press and Zine Collection greatly expanded during the 1960s with the proliferation of independent publications and literary magazines. Today, NYPL remains committed to acquiring and preserving both historical and contemporary alternative press materials. On display now in the DeWitt Wallace Periodical Room is a selection of some of the Library’s more recent works, including pieces documenting the Occupy movement and other social justice issues, demonstrating how the genre continues to flourish even amid the rise of digital communication.More info See more free New York City events & things to do on Nifty NYC.
