|Info||Eva Moskowitz has represented the East Side of Manhattan in the New York City Council since November 1999 and has chaired the Education Committee since 2002. |
Eva is one of our City�s most forceful advocates for public education, earning the designation of The New York Times as �City Council�s unapologetically demanding voice.� Eva�s recent hearings on the politically charged topic of the labor agreements governing our City�s schools received national and even international attention and praise. The Daily News wrote that Eva showed �moxie, vision and a sense of duty;� Newsweek hailed Eva as �a brave New Yorker;� and the Wall Street Journal said �bravo to Eva Moskowitz.�
Prior to entering public service, Eva was a professor of American history. After earning a B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania and a Ph.D. in American History from Johns Hopkins University, Eva taught on the faculties of the University of Virginia, Vanderbilt University, and the City University of New York. As a professor, she authored a book on the origins of pop psychology in America (Johns Hopkins University Press, 1981) and produced a documentary on the impact of the women�s movement on the lives of ordinary women. Eva also held two positions at Prep for Prep, as an instructor and as the Director of Leadership Development.
A native New Yorker, Eva attended P.S. 6 and Stuyvesant High School. She met her husband, Eric Grannis, while they were students at Stuyvesant. An attorney in private practice, Eric graduated from Columbia University and Columbia Law School. He and Eva have a five-year-old son, Culver (now a kindergartner at P.S. 290), and a one-year-old son, Dillon.
