The San Francisco – Golden Gate National Recreation Area: Lessons for New York’s Harbor District

9:14 PM EST on January 6, 2007

National Parks are a distinctively American idea, but it takes people to make them happen. Amy Meyer, co-chair of People for a Golden Gate Recreation Area, and author of the recent book New Guardians for the Golden Gate: How America got a Great National Park, will discuss how Bay Area activists succeeded in preserving all of the spectacular land that frames the Golden Gate Bridge. A panel of New York Harbor District advocates will then consider the lessons learned from this success story and how they can be applied locally. Sponsored by the Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance and Urban Center Books.
