This Week in Livable Streets Events

There are scores of livable streets-related happenings in New York every month. Since not all of them get the attention they deserve, we'll be highlighting Streetsblog Calendar listings in a new Monday post. Here's a taste of what's going on in livable streets events this week.

    • Tuesday: Book talk and signing with Joanna Merwood-Salisbury, author of "Chicago 1890: The Skyscraper and the Modern City." Chicago’s first skyscrapers are famous for projecting the city’smodernity around the world. But what did they mean at home, to theChicagoans who designed and built them, worked inside their walls, andgazed up at their façades? Answering this multifaceted question,"Chicago 1890" reveals that early skyscrapers offered hotly debatedsolutions to the city’s toughest problems and, in the process, fosteredan urban culture that spread across the country. 6:30-8:00 p.m.
    • Saturday: The week is capped off with a party for Ride the City in Brooklyn, which is definitely the place to be next weekend. Join the Ride the City team to celebrate the launch of a new version of the web site. 2:00-6:00 p.m.
    • There are also two "bike from work" events this week: Wednesday with the Transportation Alternatives Queens Committee and Thursday with Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer. Stop by for snacks and socializing.
