The good people over at Next American City have extended an invitation to Streetsblog readers to the launch party for their Spring issue this coming Thursday.

Seth Pinsky from the New York City Economic Development Corporation will be their guest of honor. It might be a great opportunity to ask him why his agency so often assumes that massive amounts of off-street parking is necessary to encourage "economic development" in the most transit-oriented city in the nation. But don’t be a party pooper, OK? Here are the event details:

Next American City is throwing a party in NYC in the Hines Gallery at the AIA Center for Architecture – and you are invited! Come celebrate the launch of Issue 22 with food, drinks and great conversation. Editor/Publisher Diana Lind will recap highlights from the new issue, including features on the financial crisis’s effects on American cities, municipal biodiesel programs around the country, an enormous swirling trash heap in the Pacific Ocean and transportation enthusiasts’ who are taking transit maps into their own hands. Plus interviews with Cary Moon, Richard Saul Wurman and Roope Mokka.

March 5, 6-8 PM
Hines Gallery, AIA Center for Architecture
536 LaGuardia Place, New York

Admission for non-subscribers is $15 in advance or $20 at the door and includes a free one-year subscription to Next American City, and entry to all NAC events & free food/drink.
