Contested Streets Screening
Contested Streets is a Transportation Alternatives-produced, Cicala Filmworks-made documentary that explores the rich diversity of New York City street life before the introduction of automobiles and shows how New York can follow the example of other modern cities that have reclaimed their streets as vibrant public spaces. Contested Streets features new footage of reclaimed streets in London, Paris and Copenhagen and interviews with New York savvy notables such as Kenneth T. Jackson, Mike Wallace, Bob Kiley, Majora Carter, Kathryn Wylde, Enrique PeÃ±alosa, James Howard Kunstler and many more.
ALSO: Toy Drive
This is a night for community to take care of its own — by demanding better, safer streets and by giving toys to the children of local, formerly-homeless families who’ve finally moved into permanent homes. In addition to hosting this free screening, the venue is launching its annual toy drive that night, so please bring an unwrapped toy when you come to the screening. (The toy drive will continue through 12/18 if you can’t bring something on Monday).
