Julia Foulkes and Mike Wallace – It Takes a Village: Greenwich Village a Hundred Years Ago

Check out this wonderful talk — with opening remarks by our own faculty member, Julia Foulkes!

Co-sponsored by the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation and The New School

Mike Wallace, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Gotham: A History of New York City to 1898, brings us Greater Gotham: A History of New York City from 1889 to 1919, which picks up where Gotham left off. The book covers a remarkable period in New York City’s history. Mike Wallace will center the Village in this remarkable period in New York City’s history, as its physical and population growth made New York the world’s second-largest metropolis.

Publisher’s Weekly writes that Greater Gotham “sets a standard for urban history, capturing both New York’s particularities and its protean dynamism.” Mike Wallace is a Distinguished Professor of History at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, specializing in the history of New York City. In 2000, Wallace founded The Gotham Center for New York City History at The Graduate Center, CUNY.
