Mike Wallace interviewed by Lisa Colangelo in AM New York: “Recounting the history of New York City in detailed and engaging prose is no easy feat. But renowned historian Mike Wallace has done it again with his new book, “Greater Gotham.” Wallace and co-author Edwin Burrows nabbed a Pulitzer Prize in 1999 for their book “Gotham” which covers the city’s unruly beginnings through the end of the 19th century. Wallace, a distinguished professor of history at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and at the CUNY Graduate Center, went solo on his latest effort. The new tome picks up where “Gotham” left off in 1898 as the city is stretching out — with a new subway system to connect the boroughs — and up as new corporations compete to build the tallest skyscrapers.”
