Gotham Unbound: The Ecological History of Greater New York

“As we approach the second anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, join Ted Steinberg, Professor of Law and History at Case Western Reserve University, as he addresses the urgent question: Can New York City survive the sea? Steinberg will use his new book, Gotham Unbound, which charts the transformation of the New York region over three centuries, from island estuary to one of the world’s most densely populated cities, to examine what the city has done in the past to deal with coastal flooding, as well as its current plans to protect the city’s waterfront. Following his presentation, Steinberg will be joined by Kate Ascher, author of The Worksand The Heights, and Milstein Professor of Urban Development at Columbia University, for a conversation and audience Q & A. ”
