  • Letters to a Hero
    This week on Undiscarded, meet the unsuspecting family with an uncanny name who found themselves in a web of confusion. Fan mail, requests, and even some generous checks kept turning up to the Parker family’s home in Forest Hills, Queens… all addressed to Spider-Man. What was initially dismissed as a prank turned out to be comic book canon. Tune in as Tania and guest Pamela Parker unveil the lore within these letters, which are now on display at The City Reliquary, and the love they show for New York’s friendly neighborhood hero.  Look at photos of this object and more at at: https://www.cityreliquary.org/undiscarded-letterstoaheroLearn more about the City Reliquary, its mission, and its collections at: cityreliquary.orgIn the city or just visiting?

  • Model Buildings
    A riddle: when are tiny models more than tiny models? Answer: when they were once part of a HUGE model. In the case of these unprepossessing little wooden and plastic buildings, probably the greatest scale model ever built: the Panorama of the City of New York. In this episode, Tania talks to Lynn Maliszewski of the Queens Museum about the crown jewel of their collection and the extraordinary history of its creation, spearheaded by one the biggest New Yorkers of all time.Look at photos of this object and more at at https://www.cityreliquary.org/undiscarded-modelbuildingsLearn more about the City Reliquary, its mission, and its collections at cityreliquary.orgIn the city or just visiting?

  • Pigeon Tags
    “Why would pigeons need tags?” Tania asks in this episode, and it’s a natural question – pigeons are underfoot everywhere in big cities, and claiming one as your own might seem as silly as claiming a particular dead leaf or piece of litter. But popular urban naturalist Gabriel Willow joins her to explain how domestic pigeons have been an important and versatile part of human life for thousands of years, and their story opens a unique view of the wildlife in New York. Look at photos of this object and more at https://www.cityreliquary.org/undiscarded-pigeontags Learn more about the City Reliquary, its mission, and its collections at cityreliquary.orgIn the city or just visiting?
