Join the New York City Municipal Archives on Tuesday, January 24th from 1-2pm for a virtual event: Lunch & Learn: How Manhattan’s Cityscape Was Remade After WWII, transforming it into both a world city and one mired in urban crisis. The recent opening of Geffen Hall at Lincoln Center paid tribute to San Juan Hill, the community that was razed to make way for this cultural landmark back in the late 1950’s. Reserve a spot online.
John F. Kennedy and Nikita Khrushchev maintained official but personal correspondence that reveals respectful adversaries with a common goal: to stop the world tumbling into Armageddon. From the failed invasion at the Bay of Pigs through the Cuban Missile Crisis, a first nuclear summit, and the building of the Berlin Wall, all with the Space Race a proxy background battle, the two men form a precarious partnership, sundered with Kennedy’s assassination.
