In this lecture and slideshow, presented in anticipation of the new exhibition Swing Time: Reginald Marsh and Thirties New York, architectural historian Barry Lewis explores two major entertainment centers that were emerging in New York in the 1930s: Times Square and Coney Island. Marsh was fascinated by urban daily life, and in Manhattan and Brooklyn, these two public spaces provided the backdrop for the social lives of many New Yorkers.
