Eight years after its first appearance online, Marc H. Miller put the final touches on the website 98 Bowery: 1969–1989, A View from the Top Floor. More than half a million people have visited the site and read its history of art and music in the Lower East Side, as Miller experienced it. Over the course of 2016, the Gallery 98 newsletter tracked progress on the site.
A chapter on Miller’s late-’80s tenure as curator at the Queens Museum concludes the 98 Bowery narrative. His 2016 return to the museum, as curator of the exhibition “Hey! Ho! Let’s Go! Ramones and the Birth of Punk,” provides an unexpected epilogue.
