Join Capital New York editors and writers to celebrate the release of their first e-book, Making the City: A selection of stories from Capital New York, featuring stories about the world of violence behind Chinese food, homeless hustlers, a Palestinian falafel king, political infighting, football heroes, and much more. The characters featured in the selection are famous, infamous, unknown, or invisible, but they're all part of the same messy project of New York City. Tonight, we'll be hearing more stories about this both hard to describe and endlessly describable city from Capital co-founder Tom McGeveran, This American Life contributor Starlee Kine, MSNBC host Steve Kornacki, playwright Sheila O'Malley, writer Steven Boone, and hosted by Capital public editor Gillian Reagan, and more.
