The New York City Streets Renaissance Campaign presents "Streetfilms"
Please join us for a 75-minute program of short films from the New York City Streets Renaissance Campaign. Streetfilms focus on New York City’s transportation problems and the struggles communities are confronted with in trying to remake their neighborhood streets into places for people, not just motor vehicles. The videos highlight a diverse range of neighborhoods, communities and advocacy groups and what they are doing to fight for pedestrians, cyclists, bus riders and better public spaces. Streetfilms also travel out of town and show how many other cities and countries are doing it better than New York City.
Among the dozen-plus works to be shown include "The Sidewalk Nibblers" and "Parking Spot Squat." All films are directed by Clarence Eckerson Jr. You can see more of Clarence’s work on the NYCSR videos web site.
This very special night will feature a pizza and beverage reception to follow which is included for free with the purchase of your ticket.
Purchasing tickets in advance is recommended.
