Since its founding, the city of New York has been intentionally interpreted through the architecture of ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome, and the Near East. Dr. Elizabeth Macaulay-Lewis explores the different ways in which New Yorkers re-conceived antiquity’s buildings and monuments beginning in the 18th century. Among the treasures considered are Grand Central Terminal, the triumphal Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Memorial Arch, as well as Sailors’ Snug Harbor and Gould Memorial Library.
