Join us in a discussion about creating public spaces that support New York City's flourishing public realm and make it a bastion of American street life. The city's streets, squares, parks,infrastructure, and public buildings are what make New York a great metropolis. How can we sustain and create public spaces that are accessible, comfortable, and serve as a stage for our public lives?
