Come to the Museum of the City of New York to hear about Sociologist William Helmreich's four year journey walking almost every street of New York City’s five boroughs: 120,000 blocks, or about 6,000 miles. In walking through its neighborhoods and talking to its residents (nine pairs of worn out shoes later), Helmreich, a native New Yorker, developed a complex understanding of the city. Join him and journalist Ariel Kaminer to discuss how New York City has changed since the 1970s and the voices and stories of two prevailing groups of people - the immigrants and the gentrifiers - to which Helmreich attributes the city’s success.
