Come along to this virtual talk by Jules Stewart about New York in the 1930s.

New York is often described as the greatest city in the world. Yet much of the iconic architecture and culture which so defines the city as we know it today only came into being in the 1930s, in what was the most significant decade in the city’s history.

The 1930s was the only decade with a clearly delineated beginning and end, from the Stock Market crash and the Great Depression on one end to the outbreak of the Second World War on the other.

During this decade, the city acquired the landmarks we recognise today: Rockefeller Center, the Empire State Building, the Waldorf-Astoria and other classic buildings. This talk will shed light on this exciting period in the Big Apple's history.
