Greater Gotham Book Talk

Join the Seaport Museum as Mike Wallace discusses his new book, Greater Gotham, the continuation to the Pulitzer Prize winning Gotham: A History of New York City to 1898.

Greater Gotham, written by Gotham co-author Mike Wallace, takes up the story of the juggernaut created by municipal consolidation in 1898 and now hurtling headlong into the 20th century. This new volume gives us New York on a whole new scale, moving from national to global prominence, driven by restless ambition, political turmoil, immigrant hopes, and Wall Street capital, aspiring to be the biggest and best at everything—to control every aspect of the country’s cultural and commercial life and, by the end of World War One, to overtake London as the financial capital of the world.

This event will be held at the Melville Gallery at 213 Water Street. Books on sale at the event or purchase general admission with book to receive a 30% discount off of the cover price. Doors open at 6:15 PM. Reception to follow book talk.
