Echoes of Youth

room 16 ECHOES

New York

Welcome to the Echoes of Youth, a multigenerational sound map featuring youth memories from throughout New York City, produced by Megan Hattie Stahl. Currently, there are 16 stories geolocated in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens. These audio stories were submitted in response to a Spring 2023 open call for place-based memories in New York City's publicly accessible spaces. Participants were invited to record memories of their youth, defined here as between the ages of 15-24.

Blue shapes overlaid on the black and grey map below indicated there is a story located there. Stories and their locations are also listed below.

To launch the walk, press 'Stream Walk' or download the walk to the right. Make sure you allow GPS tracking permissions, and audio will play automatically when you walk into a blue zone. While listening, you can tap on each blue zone to view more information and a photo. Feel free to visit the locations in any order, as each story can stand alone.

For more information and to sign up for updates about future open calls, please visit

Headphones recommended, but please stay aware of your surroundings while listening and take care when crossing the street! Kindly report any glitches or difficulties to Megan at
