Get Your Tickets to the 10-Year Bash for Streetsblog and Streetfilms

12:10 PM EDT on August 5, 2016

Ten years ago, Mark Gorton, Aaron Naparstek, and Clarence Eckerson started a new media venture -- Streetsblog and Streetfilms. The idea was to show that cities work best when streets are designed for people, not cars, and to press public officials to bring street design and transportation policy into the 21st century. No one had seen anything quite like it before, and looking at how much has changed since 2006, the impact is undeniable.

On November 14 we'll be honoring Mark, Aaron, and Clarence at our annual Streets Ball benefit in New York City, and we hope you'll join us.

This being a special anniversary, we're doing things a bit bigger this year. We'll be celebrating with cocktails and a delicious sit-down dinner at Current on Chelsea Piers, off the Hudson River Greenway by 18th Street.

As much as we'll be looking back on a decade of progress, don't forget -- this is also the kick-off party for the next 10 years of Streetsblog and Streetfilms. Tickets start at $250 and all proceeds go toward the production of high-impact media that makes the case for safer streets and better transit.

Thanks for supporting our work -- come celebrate with us on November 14.
