The Borough of Queens boasts
the largest Greek American enclave in New York City—or anywhere else in the
United States. So Queens College is the logical home for the Hellenic-American
Oral History Project archive, which promotes understanding of Greek American
communities in the metropolitan area and beyond.
comprises five categories of statistics and information: qualitative data
gleaned from our own growing library of oral histories; quantitative data drawn
from the U.S. Census and other surveys; social science references; community
data and resources; and published and unpublished texts about Greeks and Greek
Americans. Data sets will be updated when they are officially accessible. We
hope this material will be useful not only to researchers and policy makers,
but also to anyone interested in Greek Americans.
