Graduate Center and John Jay Distinguished Professor Mike Wallace, co-author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Gotham discusses his highly anticipated sequel Greater Gotham: A History of New York City from 1898 to 1919. This volume gives us the city on a whole new scale, as skyscrapers jostle for prominence and the ambitions of the wealthy compete with those of immigrants, radicals, and Harlem’s African Americans. Wallace, founder of the Gotham Center, speaks with Sam Roberts, urban affairs correspondent for the New York Times.
