The Regulator Bookshop welcomes David Goodwin, author of LEFT BANK OF THE HUDSON: Jersey City and the Artists of 111 1st Street, for a reading and booksigning. Free!

LEFT BANK OF THE HUDSON is a smart trade history of Jersey City, New Jersey told through the microcosm of a small artist community repurposing a building and forming a collaborative network.

Goodwin offers a window into the demographic, political, and socio-economic changes experienced by Jersey City during the last 30 years and addresses the question of the role of artists in economically improving cities. LEFT BANK OF THE HUDSON provides an illustrative lesson to government officials, scholars, students, activists, and everyday citizens attempting to navigate the «rediscovery» of American cities.

DAVID J. GOODWIN works by day as a librarian at Fordham University School of Law. An alum of Drexel University, St. Bonaventure University, and Fordham University, Goodwin is a past commissioner and chairman of the Jersey City Historic Preservation Commission. Currently, he serves as a board member of the Jersey City Landmarks Conservancy. He writes regularly at anothertownonthehudson.com.
