But it reminds us, too, as all memorials do, of how much has already been forgotten.

In conceiving the project — and choosing the site — the urban planners Christopher Tepper and Paul Kelterborn were inspired by an article in New York lamenting that there was no memorial yet in the city and suggested that, as a result, the site of the hospital itself, “the bland sarcophagus along Seventh Avenue, hold that place.” Summer 1981. ¿Cómo se hace un paper?

You can thank Aaron Spelling for Adrienne Salinger’s amusing and poignant images of mid-1990s teens hanging out in their bedrooms, which were collected in a 1995 book called In My Room. In a recent interview with Huck Magazine, she noted that I actually worked on that project for a long time. I started it on the West Coast, when I lived there, just out of frustration at the ways teenagers were being depicted. Because this was before the internet, this was before computers, and our reliance on television was huge. Every picture is accompanied with some testimony from the subject about his or her own life.
