Mason Williams - City of Ambition: FDR, Laguardia, and the Making of Modern New York ♦

Saturday, June 29, 2013 at 3:30 pm

With the New Deal, local initiatives became major programs, and as FDR forged a partnership with La Guardia, New York became a showcase for progressive goals. Williams, a historian specializing in urban politics, focuses on the collaboration between the president and the mayor and looks at how it changed New York—and how Gotham, in turn, became a model for America’s urban future.
