The Jewish Federation of the Berkshires will sponsor the program, "New York: City of Glittering Gentrification," with Professor Leonard Quart at 1 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 9, at Congregation Knesset Israel, 16 Colt Road.
The program is open to the public at a cost of $3.
The talk will include a brief film clip on the state of contemporary New York -- a city of intense contrasts where wealth rules -- as Quart notes Gotham as having one of the highest rates of income inequality in the nation.
Quart is professor emeritus of cinema at the City University of New York Graduate Center and the College of Staten Island.
