Forgotten NY at the Gotham Gazette Reading Club
From Michael Miscione, Manhattan Borough Historian ([email protected])
At my suggestion the Gotham Gazette Reading NYC Book Club has invited Kevin Walsh, the author of my new favorite book, Forgotten New York, to speak this Wednesday evening. This event is free and open to the public, so I encourage you to attend.
Forgotten New York – based on Walsh’s celebrated website http://www.forgotten-ny.com/ – is an addictive layman-friendly catalog of the many quirky and obscure historical and cultural sites in the five boroughs.
Roberta Gratz, author of Cities Back from the Edge: New Life for Downtown, and a commissioner on the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission will also be a guest.
Wednesday, February 28th
6:30p to 7:30p
Jefferson Market branch of the New York Public Library
425 Sixth Avenue, at 10th Street
Please RSVP to [email protected]
