Sam Roberts is celebrating the 400th anniversary of New York City with a new book called “A History of New York in 27 Buildings.” Sam brings to light the brilliant architecture, remarkable history, and bright future of the greatest city in the world. Sam looks at Grand Central Terminal, Empire State Building, and St. Paul’s Chapel. Other structures in his book show how municipal politics aka corruption — impacted the rise of the department store, live theater and public housing.
