Mike Wallace - 'Greater Gotham: A History of New York City'

Whether you agree with the Hamilton verse that calls NYC "the greatest city in the world', it's certainly one of the most important.  Mike Wallace received the Pulitzer for History for his first volume, Gotham: A History of New York City to 1898.  He joins us on Wednesday, October 25, at 7 pm, with Greater Gotham: A History of New York City from 1898 to 1919.  Skyscrapers ascending, underground infrastructure unfolding (and still vital today), Wall Street wild swings - they all propelled NYC onto the world stage.  Mike Wallace knows NYC intimately; he's the director of the Gotham Center for New York City History.

To European explorers, it was Eden, a paradise of waist-high grasses, towering stands of walnut, maple, chestnut, and oak, and forests that teemed with bears, wolves, raccoons, beavers, otters, and foxes.
