The Jackson Heights neighborhood in Queens, New York, is one of the most diverse in the United States. As part of a two-year project called stillspotting nyc, the Guggenheim is hosting Transhistoria, a series of self-guided tours to various spots in Jackson Heights, where residents of the neighborhood will read works commissioned from Queens-affiliated writers like Roger Sedarat and Erik Baard, with themes of finding tranquility and a sense of home in Jackson Heights. Tours take place on weekends through May 6.
