About the Encyclopedia

Welcome to the Macaulay Honors College Seminar 2 Encyclopedia

This site showcases work done by MHC scholars in their second honors seminar, The People of New York City. The project gives our students an important opportunity to conceptualize their material in unique and creative ways. Moreover, with the city as their classroom, the project allows them to present their work to an audience outside the school’s doors. Come see New York through their eyes.

The web project has been a part of the seminar since the founding of the program in 2001, but the format has evolved along with the technology. This encyclopedia shows sites from 2011 forward, but sites from previous years can be found in this archive.
