Livable Streets Discussion and Happy Hour
Cities worldwide are embracing new ideas about mass transit, congestion pricing, parking, public squares, mixed used development, and more, yet New York City’s transportation policies often seem as though they are stuck in the 1960s. But the sustainable transportation movement in New York City is alive in Streetsblog, StreetFilms, Transportation Alternatives, the Municipal Art Society, Project for Public Spaces, and other organizations along with many individual blogs and community groups.
Meet and mingle with other readers, activists, and supporters of a livable approach to transportation, development, and public spaces. Get to know the others who share your values about the kind of city we want to live in. Put faces behind the screen names online. And have a drink!
At 7 o’clock, leaders from a few organizations will introduce themselves and say a few brief words about their current activities:
- Aaron Naparstek, Streetsblog
- Sean Clifford, StreetFilms
- Jasper Goldman, Municipal Art Society
- Nick Grossman, Uncivil Servants and The Open Planning Project
