Public Forum kicks off its eighth season with a celebration of the last fifty years of downtown New York City. ‘Downtown’ has become synonymous with innovation and experimentation in music, art, performance, cuisine, and society – and on the eve of the Astor Anniversary for The Public, Public Forum takes a look back at the last half-century of radical creation right here in our own backyard.
