Perhaps no other city has influenced the culture of the entire country quite like New York. In his book The Brazen Age: New York City and the American Empire: Politics, Art, and Bohemia, David Reid writes about the city’s important figures, cultural accomplishments, and political climate during the period between 1945-1950. Rafael Pi Roman speaks with Reid about this fascinating period in New York City history.
