Going Back to the New York Public Library

I’m heading back to the library today, to copy more annual reports about the institutions on Blackwell’s Islands. I’ve found all the copies I could get easily, and now I’m down to the ones that can only be found on microfilm.

I’m grateful the library has them, but holy mother of God I hate working with microfilm. It is SO TEDIOUS copying hundred of pages from microfilm not to mention very expensive.

Dread, dread, dread. I will be treating myself to a nice sandwich when I take a break.

I've written six non-fiction books, the most recent is Damnation Island: Poor, Sick, Mad, and Criminal in 19th-Century New York.
