Immigrants of diverse origins and social classes have shaped New York City, but few left such visible marks as the German-speaking Jewish families whose names are synonymous with finance and philanthropy: Schiff, Warburg, Guggenheim, Lehman, etc. Historian Rebecca Kobrin (Columbia) will discuss the specific impact of these families on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and introduce a new project at Columbia University that uses census data to map and visualize migration in NYC. Rebecca Kobrin, Russell and Bettina Knapp Associate Professor of American Jewish History, works in the fields of immigration history and American Jewish History. Professor Kobrin served as the Hilda Blaustein Post-Doctoral Fellow at Yale University (2002-2004) and the American Academy of Jewish Research Post-Doctoral Fellow at New York University (2004-2006). Her areas of specialty include American Jewish history, immigration history, international history, and Jewish economic history. Her research, teaching and publications engage in the fields of international history, urban history, Jewish history, American religion and diaspora studies. 1014: Past and Future comprises a weekend of architecture, culture and community. The program will feature an exhibition and talks at 1014 5th Avenue and guided walking tours in the Upper East Side neighborhood. Accessibility Statement Unfortunately, 1014 Fifth Avenue needs to be refurbished and is not fully accessible in its current stage.
