Join Danny Fuchs, Jennifer Godzeno, Preston Niblack, Ronnie Lowenstein and Henry Grabar for an investigation into how the city budget impacts the built form of New York City.

The New York City budget starts from scratch every year. Tasked with allocating resources to services and infrastructures that run the city, the details of this enormous undertaking are not common knowledge. How does the city budget process affect our daily lives? How do City agencies participate in the process? Are they forced to compete with one another, or allowed to collaborate? Is there room for improvement and innovation?

Henry Grabar will moderate a discussion between our panelists that will orient our fellows to the workings of the city budget and examine how this abstract entity informs the urban landscape.
