Join us in the Meatpacking District with Evan Sweet and our Streets Ahead Working Groups while they explore existing streetscape activations and future opportunities for a more people-centered public realm.
Throughout the fall, Streets Ahead is convening interdisciplinary Working Groups to advance a set of visionary proposals and tools for a more vibrant, equitable streetscape. Each Working Group will focus on one of five key lenses: Commerce, Care, Climate, Culture, and Continuity.
