2/26 – A History of New York City in 27 Buildings: Sam Roberts in Conversation

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.
