Presented By Christiane Bird
Sponsored by the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society

Gotham meets The Island at the Center of the World in this dazzling history of a single block in Manhattan from the Age of Exploration to the present. 

Please join the NYG&B Thursday, November 10, 2022 at 7pm ET for a look at A Block in Time: A New York City History at the Corner of Fifth Avenue and Twenty-Third. This is the story of New York City, told through the prism of one block, bordered by Twenty-third Street to the south, Twenty-fourth Street to the north, Fifth Avenue and Broadway to the east, and Sixth Avenue to the west.

It's a story of forest and cement, bird cries and taxi horns, theaters and factories, gambling dens and gourmet foods. Author Christiane Bird will join us for a conversation about the book and her research. Tickets to the event will include a copy of the book and you will be able to join us either in person or online.
