Winter’s Here? Snow Way!
A history of snow removal in New York City with Dr. Robin Nagle
A New York City winter usually includes snow. It may look pretty while it’s coming down, but enough of it at once can paralyze the largest urban area in North America. What does it take for New York’s Department of Sanitation, the city agency in charge of snow response, to keep the streets clear when the white stuff falls?
Join Robin Nagle, the DSNY’s anthropologist-in-residence and author of the book Picking Up, for surprising stories about how snow has shaped life in the Big Apple.
Copies of Dr. Nagle’s book will be available for purchase and signing.
