Meeting Format

We will have President's Report, and hear from several Committees.

Guest speaker: Jon Michaud, author of "Last Call at Coogan's, The Life and Death of a Neighborhood Bar".

Coogan’s Bar and Restaurant opened in New York City’s Washington Heights in 1985 and closed its doors for good in 2020. Sometimes called Uptown City Hall, it became a staple of neighborhood life during its 35 years in operation—a place of safety and a bulwark against prejudice in a multi-ethnic, majority-immigrant community undergoing rapid change.

When gentrification pushed out longtime residents and nearly closed Coogan's itself; only a massive community mobilization including local politicians and Lin-Manuel Miranda kept the doors open.

  Jon will also bring copies of his book to sell.  

GANYC is a 501(c)6 non-profit organization. 115 Broadway, 5th Floor, New York, NY 10006
