New York History

Steve Greenberg and I are very excited to announce that our very special guest this week for our podcast, “Lying on the Beach” is New York Times correspondent Sam Roberts. He is one of the most respected journalists ever.

In his new book, “History of New York in 27 Buildings,” Roberts celebrates the four hundredth anniversary of the greatest city in the world. His book description says, “From the seven hundred thousand or so buildings in New York, Roberts selects twenty-seven that, in the past four centuries, have been the most emblematic of the city’s economic, social, and political evolution.”

He describes not only the buildings and how they came to be, but also their enduring impact on the city and its people and how the consequences of the construction often reverberated around the world. We post on Tuesday.
