Explore how the city and its waterfront have evolved over the centuries at the “Silent Beaches, Untold Stories: New York City’s Forgotten Waterfront” exhibit at St. John’s University, 8000 Utopia Parkway, Jamaica Estates, beginning Sept. 3.
Using historical and current photographs, maps, artifacts, prints, drawings and films, the exhibit focuses on remote, neglected and little known waterfront areas.
