New York City is a mecca for graffiti and street art, making it a very attractive playground for artists from around the world. Bushwick, in a working class district on the north side of Brooklyn adjacent to Williamsburg, has been attracting artists for some time now. The neighborhood has a fair collection of art studios and galleries, but it’s Bushwick’s industrial landscape that’s attracting the street artist. If you came looking for 1960′s Greenwich Village, you’ll find something brewing in Bushwick.

Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

About 4 smiles. Brisk pace. The walk will be tracing the route of several lost bodies of water described in the book Gotham Unbound which used to serve important ecological and utilitarian functions in pre-aqueduct New York. In particular, the main highlight will be the now-buried Sunfish Pond and its source streams in the neighborhood of Kips Bay. Walk northward from Kips Bay through Murray Hill, Turtle Bay and the Midtown East and see the shoreline neighborhoods that can only exist in this once marshy area because of aggressive landfilling practices of the 19th and 20th centuries.

A post–Superstorm Sandy map designates a stunning 147 square miles of New York—nearly half of the entire city and encompassing nearly three million people—as a hurricane evacuation zone. Rising sea level will only complicate the coastal flooding problem. How did America’s largest city arrive at this perilous impasse? What has the city done in the past to address coastal flooding? And what was the response to Sandy? Speaker Ted Steinberg is author of Gotham Unbound: The Ecological History of Greater New York, which examines the history of ‘one of the most drastically transformed natural environments in the world.’” Especially recommended for those who believe intellectuals ought to bear some responsibility for addressing contemporary problems.
