New Hyde Park Museum

Author George E. Christ documented the history of our community in his book, The Early History of New Hyde Park, which was published 1997. The in-depth research and detailed description of New Hyde Park painted a way of life that differs greatly from our life today. The book is full of fascinating facts, historical pictures and events. The New Hyde Park Museum is pleased to have this amazing book on our website for visitors to view. This has inspired the Museum to start creating a journal of photos, stories, and videos documenting life whilst trying to adapt to a new way of life during the pandemic.

Help Us Document Life in New Hyde Park during the Pandemic of 2020 and Beyond

People enjoy learning about history through photos, stories, and videos. As we move through the COVID-19 pandemic and prepare for modified activities in the upcoming months, the team at the New Hyde Park Museum has been looking over our options for the future. And we have decided that NOW is the time for us to document history. The New Hyde Park Museum is looking for stories of how people’s time was spent during the shelter-in-place mandate, photos that go along, even digital journals for all to see. When things do start to re-open, we are looking to document the various phases with new and interesting experiences. People will be surprised how fast current events become part of history.
