The Pearl Street Project
In 2022, the Pearl Street Project told the stories of Albany’s historic and vibrant Pearl Street in the pages, both printed and virtual, of the Times Union. The project benefited from a unique collaboration between Albany Public Library, whose North Albany Branch and Howe Branch practically bookend Pearl Street, and the Times Union. This partnership, supported by the nonprofit Library Futures and assisted by Hearken, aimed to amplify the voices of community members in telling stories about Albany’s Pearl Street.
