July 13, 1935: Inside the kitchen of an apartment at Boulevard Gardens in Queens, a high-rise development where the average rent was $11 per room. This photograph, and dozens of others from the visual archives of The New York Times, appears in "A Short History of the Highrise," a four-part interactive documentary film about the 2,500-year history of vertical living that was published on Tuesday. In addition to exploring the documentary, which includes animations, games and up-close experiences with historical imagery, you may also submit a photograph representing your own experience living in or among high-rise buildings.

Chef Scott Drewno of The Source assembles his original take on Chinese potstickers with cherries, apricots and raisins added to the classic filling of pork, cabbage, garlic, ginger and herbs. Yum! More #NPRDumplingWeek goodness on our website and on the air. And tag your dumplings of course
