Greater

By Jamie Rubin & Cheryl Cohen Effron

New York City is an epicenter of business, finance, arts, culture, food, and so much more. Throughout its history, it’s also been the epicenter of great challenges and crisis - from 9/11 to the Great Recession to the coronavirus pandemic. Each episode, hosts Jamie Rubin and Cheryl Cohen Effron, two co-founders of the non-profit Greater NY, bring you conversations with leaders in the public, private, and non-profit sectors who are working together to build a better New York.
