Recent Research

Our Summer Internship Program is an opportunity for participants to have access to the Society’s archives to conduct supervised research. Past years included primary research on rediscovering the Steinway Settlement, the community created by the Steinway Family around the legendary Steinway & Sons factory, and partial digital restoration of an 1859 Map of Astoria.
