Not only did workers build and maintain the physical city, but their struggles over pay, power, and inclusion have made and remade the city many times over and, in the process, left a physical record for archaeologists to uncover. Inspired by our exhibition, City of Workers, City of Struggle: How Labor Movements Changed New York (opens May 1, 2019), join archaeologists Dr. Meta Janowitz, Dr. Jean Howson, and Alanna Warner-Smith as they share their latest findings about New York City's working and living conditions from the 18th to the early 20th centuries and consider the lasting impact of labor on workers' bodies, both female and male. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=353360 Museum of the City of New York Museum of the City of New York
