Pete HamillSteven Hirsch Pete Hamill at NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute.

Earlier today, we mentioned how grateful we are for the strong turn-out at NYU Journalism Thursday night for a talk by Pete Hamill titled, “Down the Block.”

We’re now happy to be able to make available a complete video of Mr. Hamill’s remarks here.

Those listening in — both in the room and by livestream — were moved to tweet quotes from Mr. Hamill’s remarks and their own reactions to his talk:

hel_bell “When the heroin came, people started locking the doors” listening to Pete Hamill lecture on the e.village in the 60s @nytlev launch party

jimschachter “Everybody’s got a story, if you’re patient, if you listen, if you decide how people live is interesting to other people.” – Hamill, @nytlev

RevaGaur Listening to some great E Village/LES history.

EdAlliance We’re tuning in! Great history of the EV.

anjalimullany Pete Hamill spoke at @nytlev’s launch party. He said reporters shouldn’t hurt people who can’t hurt them back. I think this happens a lot.

Rahma Listening to Pete hamill talk abt living in the east village – love how he refers to himself as a newspaper man and not a journalist
