Themes of the evolution of the neighborhood (during the 1960s and 1970s)include drama, poetry, dance, art, demographic changes, architecture, and activism.  Based on this, a new set of questions will be developed and tested for the annual Scavenger Hunt, which will take place during Five Dutch Days Five Boroughs.
