The Neighborhood Stories Project is a storytelling initiative by the NYC Department of Records and Information Services (DORIS), which aims to gather and permanently preserve the stories of New York City community members - connecting local history with the records of City government maintained in the collections of the Municipal Archives and Library.

The projects endeavors to "put the community in the archive" by empowering local residents to provide their own rich historical narrative, and to encourage them to reflect on how the past connects to their lives, their families and their future.
