Virtual Program | New York City’s Wild Side: The Non-Human Neighbors in Our Midst


We may be oblivious to this, but we homo sapiens are not alone in New York.

From deer to dolphins, beavers to bass, we share this cramped city with a parallel world of critters and creatures, and always have. The history of NYC’s animal life includes celebrities (Pale Male), legends (sewer alligators), pests (rats), and resurrected wildlife long thought gone (whales), and is the subject of Thomas Hynes‘s book, Wild City: A Brief History of New York City in 40 Animals. Hynes shares quirky information, eye-opening facts, and surprisingly moving anecdotes with BHS historian and fellow bipedal primate, Nalleli Guillen.
