No one can say exactly what the future brings for New York. All we know is that there is a future. After two years of talking heads and hot takes pronouncing the city dead, New York is moving forward with a new mayor in City Hall and almost nine million people in the five boroughs. But what else is new? Since the Fiscal Crisis back in the 70's, New York has been repeatedly counted out, only to pull itself back up, bigger than ever. Thomas Dyja, author of New York, New York, New York: Four Decades of Success, Excess, and Transformation, will look at what makes the city so resilient, in discussion with former Parks Commissioner Gordon Davis, whose work both in the spotlight and behind the scenes has led the way for those many revivals. What lessons can we learn from the last forty years? What's different now for New York, and what are the challenges it will always face? The conversation will be followed by a book signing and reception.
