Join us each month for our Lunch and Learn Series – an intimate conversation with agency staff and special guests on the collections of the Municipal Archives and Library, as well as the history of New York City.
This month, housing advocate and author Daniel R. Garodnick leads a conversation about his latest literary project Saving Stuyvesant Town, the incredible true story of how one middle-class community defeated the largest residential real estate deal in American history. Garodnick’s colorful and heartfelt account of this crucial moment in New York City history shows how creative problem solving, determination, and brute force politics can be marshaled for the public good. The nine-year struggle by these residents to save Stuyvesant Town is an inspiration to everyone who is committed to ensuring that New York remains a livable, affordable, and economically diverse city.
