Catalyzing worker co-ops & the solidarity economy

The Gotham Center for New York City History

The Gotham Center is a university-based 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, Distinguished Professor of History at John Jay College and The Graduate Center, CUNY, after his landmark work Gotham: A History of New York City to 1898, co-authored with Edwin Burrows, won the Pulitzer. Our goal is to support independent and professional historical work examining the various 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. We endeavor to make research on New York City history accessible through a variety of public-facing initiatives, such as our free lecture series and digital resources.
