Join the Seaport Museum as Mike Wallace discusses his new book, Greater Gotham, the continuation to the Pulitzer Prize winning Gotham: A History of New York City to 1898. Greater Gotham, written by Gotham co-author Mike Wallace, takes up the story of the juggernaut created by municipal consolidation in 1898 and now hurtling headlong into the 20th century. This new volume gives us New York on a whole new scale, moving from national to global prominence, driven by restless ambition, political turmoil, immigrant hopes, and Wall Street capital, aspiring to be the biggest and best at everything—to control every aspect of the country’s cultural and commercial life and, by the end of World War One, to overtake London as the financial capital of the world.More info See more free New York City events & things to do on Nifty NYC.
