Greenwich Historical Society Crooks Lecture 11/14/2012 7:30:00 PM
Greenwich Historical Society Crooks Lecture
Between 1920 and 1960, New York was the largest city in the world. Its port was the busiest on earth, and its industrial output was the greatest on earth. By most measures, it was the capital of capitalism, the capital of the 20th century and the capital of the world. After 1960, the city and the region faltered, corporations departed, the middle class left and the overall population fell. By 1975, the city was, in effect, bankrupt. On Wednesday, November 14 at 7:30 p.m. in the Cole Auditorium, as part of the Greenwich Historical Society’s Annual Crooks Lecture, Kenneth Jackson will discuss why and how the metropolis reversed course and reclaimed its title as capital of the world. The Crooks Lecture is co-sponsored by the Greenwich Historical Society and Greenwich Library. Admission is free but reservations are strongly suggested. Please call Jaime Villaneda (203) 869-6899, Ext. 10 to hold your space. Check-in begins at 7 pm.
