Come celebrate Roberta Brandes Gratz, Jane Jacobs, and fellow defenders of New York City at the annual Bard Birthday Breakfast Benefit on December 1 - details below!
(Required reading is last week's New York Times City Room blog post about Roberta's feisty tenure on New York's Landmarks Preservation Commission...and her abrupt dismissal by Mayor Bloomberg.)
Roberta Brandes Gratz will also be speaking tonight, Wednesday, November 10, at 7:00 PM at The New School, Theresa Lang Community and Student Center, 55 West 13th Street, 2nd Floor. Admission is free! Sociologist Richard Sennett and moderator David Brancaccio will join in the discussion, entitled "The Battle for Gotham: The Competing Legacies of Jane Jacobs and Robert Moses."
