SUMMARY:
Join historian Jennifer Fronc (University of Massachusetts, Amherst) with David Freeland, James Sanders, and Burton Peretti (Western Connecticut State University) for a panel examining the history of leisure in Manhattan — both legal and extra-legal.
DESCRIPTION:
New York offers innumerable opportunities for looking at our neighbors, our city and ourselves — and for being looked at in return. The spaces where New Yorkers spend their leisure time have been particularly fertile, revealing how people of varying backgrounds came together to dance, to drink, or to see a film, and attracting the attention of reformers and the police in the process. Join historian Jennifer Fronc (University of Massachusetts, Amherst) with David Freeland, and Burton Peretti (Western Connecticut State University) for a panel examining the history of leisure in Manhattan — both legal and extra-legal.
