Say goodbye to May, folks. It’s been swell!
And now: some Friday Links!
“This site provides an alternative way of browsing the NYPL’s incredible Photographic Views of New York City, 1870s-1970s collection. Its goal is to help you discover the history behind the places you see every day.”

A funny but insightful read from bioinformatician Alicia Oshlack.
See you next week!
