History of New York

Learn the History of New York at The Beekman School

This is a one-semester course designed to broaden our understanding of the city that we live in. We will focus on certain key topics and moments within the history of NYC, starting with its founding and working through to the present day. Within this larger framework, we will hone in on key moments and special topics. The course will partially be guided by our own groups’ interests, and each student will have the opportunity to research and present on topics of their choice in addition to covering more overarching concepts. Students will leave the course with a greater appreciation of NYC and the events and individuals who helped to create its unique character.
