The City Transformed
Attended the first of eight lectures by architectural historian Barry Lewis last night at the Cooper Union. The series is called The City Transformed, and last night he raced from the Dutch founding to the 1830s. Excellent stuff! Should be required for citizenship in NYC. I was reminded of Timothy “Speed” Levitch, tour-guide star of the doc The Cruise, which, if this were Paris, would play every day in some theater here in the city forever.
