Deputy Mayor Alicia Glen leads the administration's efforts to grow and diversify New York City's economy, invest in emerging industries across the five boroughs, build a new generation of affordable housing, and help New Yorkers secure good-paying jobs that can support a family.
Grappling with Growth
After guests were served light lunch, Forum President, James von Klemperer introduced the cross-Atlantic dialogue between the Deputy Mayor’s of New York City and London, Alicia Glen and Jules Pipe. Central to the day’s discussion were the different tools each city’s government has to ensure equitable housing and transit development, obstacles in city planning and zoning legislation, how to avoid creating “barbell cities”, and how to balance short-term goals with their long-term visions for the city.
This event is number eleven in the NYLON series, a key part of our Global Exchange program. In association with New London Architecture and the Centre for Architecture, this live video seminar took place simultaneously in both cities to bring together speakers and audiences and foster cross-city dialogue between London and New York.
