The Public Realm in the “New” New York

Event Public Works
January 19th, 2023
8:30am - 10:30am
99 Hudson Street 3rd fl, New York, NY, USA

Julie Stein is the Executive Director of the New New York Panel, a blue-ribbon panel convened by Mayor Eric Adams and Governor Kathy Hochul to develop actionable strategies for the equitable recovery of NYC; in December 2022, the Mayor and Governor announced Making New York Work for Everyone, a joint City/State action plan to make New York City the best place to work—no matter where you work or what you do. Julie previously served as a Senior Vice President in NYCEDC’s Asset Management Division and co-head of the Portfolio Management Department. Prior to that, Julie served as NYCEDC’s Executive Director of Sunset Park, where she oversaw industrial leasing, campus planning, and placemaking. Julie holds a Master's in city planning from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a Bachelor's in public policy from Brown University, and she is a graduate of the Coro Leadership New York program.

Join us for breakfast and conversation on the “New” New York Panel recommendations with Julie Stein.

As part of the “New” New York Panel, the City and State convened a cross-section of civic leaders and industry experts to develop ideas for achieving an equitable and robust economy.  The Making New York Work for Everyone Action Plan, a historic City-State agenda between Governor Hochul and Mayor Adams, presents 40 proposals for investments, legislation, and development and infrastructure projects.  

For her presentation, Julie Stein, executive director of “New” New York Panel, will share the plan’s high-impact ideas focused on the transformation of the public realm. During the discussion, we will invite Fellows to join the conversation, provide meaningful feedback, and strategize how to drive the plan forward.

About Public Works

Public Works is a new event series inviting public officials and design and development leaders to present forthcoming built environment projects that shape the public good. Through Public Works, we hope to encourage a civic dialogue with our network of Forum Fellows working in architecture, planning, community and real estate development on relevant issues we’re facing in New York City today. Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks, and share your ideas for future programs with us!
