Preserving NYC's Vanishing Businesses

Thu, 27 Jul 2017 11:27:32 -0400

Grousing about how New York is changing, gentrifying and losing its edge has long been a New Yorker's right and social obligation. For the last decade, Jeremiah Moss has been doing his part, chronicling the closure of New York establishments on his blog "Vanishing New York." Moss offers a comprehensive history of the city — its culture and people — through the institutions that have been erased, which he compiled in his new book, Vanishing New York: How a Great City Lost Its Soul (Dey Street Books, 2017).

David Wallace-Wells, deputy editor at New York Magazine and Michael Oppenheimer, professor of Geosciences and International Affairs at Princeton University, discuss the scientific evidence laid out in Wallace-Wells' recent article, "The Uninhabitable Earth." After the article came out, Wallace-Wells got a lot of push back for being too alarming and focusing on the worst case scenario.
