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.

Our Week in Milan

Oh what a week it was. The return of PechaKucha to Milan was a great thing indeed, and we'd like to thank every single presenter who accepted our invitation, and took part in our series of events (over 4 nights) at the Heineken Open Design Explorations temporary club space. The venue itself was a sight to behold -- we loved the giant "screen" made up Heineken bottles, that would play videos, or reflect what was happening in front of it (see more in this piece from Cool Hunting) -- and we handed over the stage on the first night to a few of the designers who helped produce it (again, they were chosen at PK events that were held last year in Tokyo, Sao Paulo, Milan, and NYC). Having a proper PechaKucha presence as part of Milan Design Week certainly felt right, and we would love to see it happen again. Also, look to the London Design Festival in September, as we will have a strong PechaKucha presence there too.

Your goal is to keep your audience interested by reporting the interesting information you have learned, but also by maintaining a conversational tone as you explain it. Check out the full write-up here.
