City Walk | Battery Park City Tour: The Business Core


The second of the Skyscraper Museum's three thematic walking tours of Battery Park City covers the middle zone of the commercial core with its 1980s skyscrapers of the original World Financial Center (now Brookfield Place) by architect Cesar Pelli, as well as the expansive North Cove Marina and its public realm. This walk investigates how the planning concept of public-private partnership was both the principle and economic engine of the Battery Park City project. It will consider how the office and retail precinct connects to lower Manhattan and the World Trade Center and how the goal of opening the waterfront to public access and recreation was realized over three decades. Tour duration is around 60 minutes.

In Kai Bird's new book, the Pulitzer Prize–winning author examines the complex triumphs and tragedies of Jimmy Carter’s presidential legacy.

Author Reading | After Cooling: On Freon, Global Warming, and the Terrible Cost of Comfort (virtual)


Eric Dean Wilson's debut book is an impactful work of literary nonfiction that interweaves the science and history of the powerful refrigerant (and dangerous greenhouse gas) Freon with a compelling meditation on how to live meaningfully and morally in a rapidly heating world. Wilson tells the story of Freon’s birth, life, and afterlife, from its invention in the 1920s—when it was hailed as a miracle of scientific progress—to efforts in the 1980s to ban the chemical (and the resulting political backlash), to Wilson’s present-day road trip through the American heartland alongside a man who buys up old tanks of Freon stockpiled in attics and basements and destroys the chemical before it can do further harm.
