Author David Goodwin will discuss his book LEFT BANK OF THE HUDSON: Jersey City and the Artists of 111 1st Street.
A former tobacco-company warehouse turned artist colony in Jersey City, N.J., serves as a microcosm of American urban development in the age of globalization. . . This close study of a specific arts community, forcibly disbanded, is useful both as an act of specific memorialization and as an exemplar of a wider phenomenon seen in cities across North America. (Publishers Weekly)
David J. Goodwin is an urban historian and historic preservation advocate and currently a librarian at Fordham University where he received his MA in Urban Studies.
This program is co-sponsored by Friends in the City (FitC), and the Philadelphia City Institute Library, and will be held in the meeting room on the library’s lower level. We regret there is no elevator.
