National Archives – NYC

This inaugural exhibition of the new location of the National Archives in New York City was located in the Rotunda of the Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House at One Bowling Green. “The World’s Port” explored aspects of the Port of New York using documents and photographs from the National Archives. Among the documents featured in “The World’s Port: Through Documents of the National Archives” were the deed of gift for the Statue of Liberty, deck plans of the RMS Titanic, a passenger arrival record listing the first person processed at Ellis Island, architectural designs for the Custom House, slave receipts seized by the Navy during the Civil War, and an indictment for the last person executed in the US for being a pirate. Roger Westerman designed the space and I designed and executed the graphic system.
