Event description

Description

The Manhattan street grid has been called “a disaster” of urban planning and “the most courageous act of prediction in Western Civilization”. In other words, you either love it or hate it. Join Gerard Koeppel as he relates the history of this uniquely New York marvel through his most recent book.
