The Gargoyle Hunters: An Evening With Author John Freeman Gill & Greg Young

November 7, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

gargoyle hunters ideasmyth

John Freeman Gill’s dramatic novel The Gargoyle Hunters solves the mystery of a brazen, seemingly impossible true-life architectural heist. In 1974, as New York City neared bankruptcy, the theft of an entire historic Manhattan building facade stunned the city. Was it salvage or theft? Novelist John Freeman Gill has written an architectural whodunit that is “extraordinary” (Annie Proulx) and “marvelously evocative” (The New York Times).

Gill will speak with Greg Young from the popular NYC-history podcast The Bowery Boys about gargoyles, the city’s architectural treasures and the moving personal story which lies behind his fiction. Gill is a long-time The New York Times contributor. Greg Young is co-presenter (with Tom Meyers) of the Bowery Boys podcast and co-author of The Bowery Boys: Adventures in Old New York.
