Press Conference
On February 6, 2002, the Gotham Center held a press conference on the steps of city hall to protest the removal of former Mayor Giuliani's records from the municipal archive. At this time the Gotham center also submitted a petition to Mayor Bloomberg signed by over 800 concerned persons demanding that the records be returned to the city.
