Thurs, Apr 29, 2021
6 pm

Online, via Zoom

To mark the publication of his new book New York, New York, New York: Four Decades of Success, Excess, and Transformation (2021), urban historian and author Thomas Dyja speaks with Adam D. Weinberg, Alice Pratt Brown Director, about the recent history of New York City and his wide-ranging research for this project. The conversation explores Dyja’s account of how New York City became what it is today, considering the role of arts and culture in this evolution from SoHo, Schnabel, and the Times Square Show to the 1993 Whitney Biennial and the Culture Wars to the rise of Chelsea and Williamsburg.
