This event will be livestreamed.
Sam Roberts, longtime reporter at The New York Times and host of CUNY-TV's program The New York Times Close Up, speaks about his new book A History of New York in 27 Buildings: The 400-Year Untold Story of an American Metropolis. Exploring the history of the city via the prism of architecture, Roberts describes how these structures—some iconic, others far less so—shaped New York's political, economic, and social development. He joins in a conversation with Rob Snyder, who was recently appointed Manhattan borough historian.
Books will be available for sale and signing at the event.
Presented with the Gotham Center for New York City History.
