Scope of Collection
This collection includes oral histories of Upper Nyack residents. The Van Houten’s Landing Oral History Project was created by Jane Cooper who moved to Van Houten’s Landing in 1999. As a newcomer to Rockland County, she was eager to hear the stories of her new neighbors who were long time residents and had witnessed the evolution of Upper Nyack firsthand. Jane, along with her neighbors Mort Korn and Jeff Berman, collected these interviews in 2004. They have graciously allowed the Nyack Library to add these interviews to our digital collections.
