The Megaprojects that Transformed New York

20 November 6:30pm - 8:30pm
Venue: Museum of the City of New York
1220 5th Avenue
New York

As a new generation of "Master Builders" transform our city at a breakneck pace, we take stock of the megaprojects that have shaped New York, from Rockefeller Center and Roosevelt Island to the newly-minted Hudson Yards. Distinguished urban historians Dr. Lizabeth Cohen, Daniel Okrent, and Dr. Samuel Zipp join urban planner Regina Myer to consider the complex legacies of NYC’s sprawling real estate projects, then and now. Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic Paul Goldberger moderates.


Reception to follow.


This program is part of Dr. Lizabeth Cohen’s tour for her new book, Saving America’s Cities: Ed Logue and the Struggle to Renew Urban America in the Suburban Age (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, October 2019), which will be available for purchase and signing.
