Eldridge & Co. – Sam Roberts-"A History of New York in 101 Objects"
“A History of New York in 101 Objects” represents New York Times urban affairs correspondent, Sam Roberts’ choice of objects that have played a transformative role in New York’s history or are emblematic of this transformation. Objects are listed chronologically – beginning with a mastodon’s tusk. The book is a great way to sell history. (Taped: 09/29/14)
