On August 6th, Untapped Cities founder Michelle Young will give a talk on her recently released book Broadway at the Mid-Manhattan branch of the New York Public Library. At 6:30pm Michelle will walk through the most surprising finds she came across from the collection nearly 200 vintage photographs published in this book about the history of Broadway as a street, tracing its evolution from the Native American era until today.
