Description:

One Day University presents a series of video lectures recorded in real-time from some of the top minds in the United States. Given by award-winning professors and experts in their field, these recorded lectures dive deep into the worlds of religion, government, literature, and social justice.NYU Professor and New York Times Reporter Sam Roberts has chosen twenty objects that embody the narrative and history of New York City. To capture it in so few objects seems near impossible, as New York compresses a practically innumerable number of objects in its small space. Yet that is precisely what the class offers, a luminous peek at the essence of what makes a great city. Selected with a lens for the quirky, the objects are a far cry from the clichés of tourism. Instead, they serve as living records of the city's triumphs, tragedies, and remarkable resilience. Tucked between the entries are delightful curiosities, such as the pear tree that became the final living connection to New York's Dutch heritage, as well as many others.
