Join us each month for our Lunch and Learn Series – an intimate conversation with agency staff and special guests on the collections of the Municipal Archives and Library, as well as the history of New York City.
This month, we are joined by Ann L. Buttenwieser, an urban planner, historian, and author of The Floating Pool Lady – A Quest to Bring a Public Pool to New York City’s Waterfront.
Buttenwieser–who has taught at the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation at Columbia University and in the Macaulay College at the City University of New York–takes readers on an extraordinary journey into the past, recounting an adventure that started in the bayous of Louisiana and ended with a self-sustaining, floating swimming pool for underserved Bronx residents moored in New York Harbor.Buy tickets/get more info now
