Organization description:
The Gotham Center is a research and education center devoted to advancing scholarly and public understanding of New York City’s rich and living past. The organization was founded by Mike Wallace after his landmark work, Gotham, won the Pulitzer, and for nearly 20 years has been the one academic institution devoted exclusively to promoting this critical field of study. Our goal is to support all work examining the forces and figures that have shaped life in the city, as well as New York’s contributions to the development of the nation and the world, across a diverse array of programming.
