New York: City on a Grid

BY GERARD KOEPPEL
@ VOL 7 ON DEC 04, 2015

Actor David Duchovny (!) says of Gerard Koeppel's new book: “ I’ve spent most of my life walking the straight lines of the world’s greatest city, and have never thought to ask: Is this a different shape from other cities, and if so, why, and who did it? Koeppel’s book answers these questions, in an easygoing, good-humored manner, with interesting facts unearthed on nearly every page. This is one of those books you always wished would be written, and here it is. Indispensable for anyone interested in the history of New York and cities generally, and bound to fuel cocktail conversations up, down, and across the city for years to come.”

Listen here for a whirlwind history of NY's grid as it develops!

Gerard Koeppel writes history, mostly New York related, but also in anything from magazines and journals to historical signage in city parks. He was also a captain of a charter sailboat, an awful law student, a licensed hack (out of a Greenwich Village taxi garage), and then, for many years, a radio reporter/writer/editor/producer, mostly with CBS News.

Guilty Pleasures

BY STEVE JAROS

Steve Jaros takes a few moments to drop some metaphorical truth bombs, and address some issues surrounding the books, movies, games, and tv shows we consume. In so few words, he makes the argument that we ought not feel guilty about things that entertain us, with the stipulation that we don't hurt someone else in the process.

Understanding Architectural Needs in Liberia

“To really understand local needs, we didn’t come with answers but rather questions.” Architect Jack DeBartolo and his father have been taking ordinary projects and turning them into extraordinary solutions. Their work has taken them all over the country, but also to the developing world. In "Understanding Architectural Needs in Liberia" from PKN Phoenix Vol. 1, we see that his efforts working in Liberian Africa with architectural students opened his eyes to a very different set of standards of construction and culture.
