Next Monday: How You Can Transform New York City Streets

What can you do to reduce automobile dependence and improve conditions for pedestrians, cyclists and transit riders in New York City? As an individual with finite time, energy and resources, how can you make a Livable Streets revolution happen in your own neighborhood?

On Monday I’ll be moderating a panel discussion with eight of New York City’s most successful neighborhood change-makers. They’ll be sharing inspiring stories and practical advice on what it takes to transform the public realm.

If you’re interested in getting more involved with New York City’s growing Livable Streets movement or you have ideas for changes you’d like to see made in your own corner of the city, don’t miss this event. Seating is limited, so RSVP now.
