The Museum of the City of New York Presents Upcoming Evening Events, 2/7

The Museum of the City of New York will be hosting several evening programs, panels, and book talks in the coming weeks that further illuminate current exhibitions, as well as foster conversation about topical issues concerning New York City after Hurricane Sandy. Programs will be presented in conjunction with the new exhibition "Making Room: New Models for Housing New Yorkers," offering innovative solutions to New York City's emerging housing needs, and "Currier & Ives and Other Winter Tales," displaying the Museum's revered collection of prints by the renowned New York firm of Currier & Ives.

The second event in a series of AFTERMATH: Post-Hurricane Sandy programs is a conversation between distinguished urban experts, professors and critics about what it will take for New York City to protect itself from future storms - both in terms of physical infrastructure, public policy, and not least, political will.

A list of upcoming programs are listed below. For a complete schedule visit http://www.mcny.org.

"Going Solo: The Extraordinary Rise and Surprising Appeal of Living Alone"

More than 30 percent of the world's population lives alone, and that percentage is growing daily. How is this profound demographic shift transforming the economic and cultural life of cities around the globe? Join NYU sociologist Eric Klinenberg, the author of Going Solo: The Extraordinary Rise and Surprising Appeal of Living Alone (Penguin, 2012), and Jerilyn Perine, Director of the Citizens Housing and Planning Council, for a discussion about the rise of single adults in New York, Paris, Tokyo, and other world metropolises and its implications for urban life as (we think) we know it today. This is the launch event for the Penguin paperback edition of Going Solo (Jan. 2013).

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition "Making Room: New Models for Housing New Yorkers"
