Monday: Why? Radio is live in New York City. Be in our audience for free.

Why? Radio is recording live in New York City on Monday, June 12, and you can be in the audience for free! Just steps away from Wall Street's Charging Bull and Fearless Girl, is the best and cheapest ticket in town. 

“What Makes a Building Beautiful?”
with guest Sarah Williams Goldhagen

Reception: 6:30-7:00.
Live taping: 7:00-8:30.

Cornell AAP, NYC Studio
(Cornell University, Architecture, Art, and Planning)
26 Broadway
, 20th Floor
New York, NY 10004


Free, but there is limited space, so you must reserve a space.


Join us as we talk with Sarah Williams Goldhagen about her new book Welcome to Your World: How the Built Environment Shapes our Lives. In it, Sarah reveals how the environments we build profoundly shape our feelings, memories, and well-being, and argues that we must harness this knowledge to construct a world better suited to human experience. Taking us on a fascinating journey through some of the world’s best and worst landscapes, buildings, and cityscapes, she draws from recent research in cognitive neuroscience and psychology to demonstrate how people’s experiences of the places they build are central to their well-being, their physical health, their communal and social lives, and even their very sense of themselves.
Be in our audience, ask questions, and experience Why? Radio like you’ve never experienced it before. Come early and meet Jack and Sarah. Stay after the interview as Jack leads a panel discussion with Sarah, Mark Ginsberg (award winning architect) and Richard Roberts (former NY Housing Commissioner). We want your voice as part of the panel!

Sarah Williams Goldhagen taught at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design for ten years and was the New Republic’s architecture critic until recently. Currently a contributing editor at Art in America and Architectural Record, she is an award-winning writer who has written about buildings, cities, and landscapes for many national and international publications, including the New York Times, the American Prospect, and Harvard Design Magazine. She lives in New York City.

This event is being sponsored by the Citizens Housing & Planning Council and Cornell University's School of Architecture, Art and Planning (learn about the NYC division here). Why? Radio thanks them both for the invitation!


Donate to Why? Radio and receive the gift of music.

All the changes we are announcing and all of the events we create cost money, yet it's all free to anyone who wants to participate. We never charge for entry, but we are still on a very limited budget. IPPL and Why? Radio exist almost entirely on private donations. So, we need you to help us continue our work. Your contribution is tax deductible and because all of Why? Radio’s guest volunteer their time (we have never paid for an interview), you donation goes a long way.

As a gift, we’d like to offer you CDs from our favorite musician, world-jazz flutist Mark Weinstein. You hear him every time you listen to our show; his music is our soundtrack. He has donated a wide range of albums; they are yours for free.
