Only In New York

Only in New York is a bi-monthly conversation series hosted by New York Times journalist Sarah Maslin Nir. At each program, Nir brings together two remarkable New Yorkers from different worlds to explore - and question - key concepts and commonly-held beliefs about life in the city, its limits and its possibilities. The conversations are inspired by the Museum's ongoing exhibition New York at Its Core.
