Sam Roberts, Urban Affairs Correspondent for the New York Times, appreciates the diverse history of the city in which he lives. In his book, A History of New York in 101 Objects, Roberts tells his version of the history of New York through a set of 101 objects that define it. Some of the objects are humorous and most historical, yet all have a unique and fascinating story behind them. Rafael Pi Roman talks with Roberts about the fun, often under-appreciated history of New York.
