Since its founding, the city of New York has been intentionally interpreted through the architecture of ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome, and the Near East. Dr. Elizabeth Macaulay-Lewis explores the different ways in which New Yorkers re-conceived antiquity’s buildings and monuments beginning in the 18th century.
