New York’s extraordinary public infrastructure – housing, transit, and parks – are threatened by decades of disinvestment and shifting national priorities. How can New York City reinvest and rethink these institutions for future generations?
Join us on September 26 for dinner and debate on how New York City should sustain its public realm.
Recognizing that any major civic effort requires coordination between the public, private and philanthropic sectors, we welcome three luminaries to discuss new approaches for reinvesting and rethinking the urban environment for future generations: Daniel Biederman, Rasmia Kirmani-Frye and Mitchell Silver.
