Gotham City: The Story Continues

CUNY historians Mike Wallace and Edwin G. Burroughs won the 1999 Pulitzer Prize for Gotham, their sweeping history of New York City through 1898. Nearly 20 years later, Wallace is getting early acclaim for his eagerly awaited, and equally epic, next volume – Greater Gotham. The indefatigable historian – a distinguished professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and The CUNY Graduate Center – tells the story of the two decades through World War I that transformed the city, seemingly overnight, into the global metropolis it is today.
