A new website and a new labor history lecture series signals a renaissance at The General Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen of the City of New York, founded by artisans in 1785 and for more than two hundred years the sponsor of educational and cultural programs in NYC. The Lecture series begins on Tuesday, October 7, with an illustrated talk by Elizabeth Blackmar on Central Park as a public works project and the thousands who built it. Visit the website below.
