Reclaiming the Streets: Public Space and Quality of Life in New York
The Guardian New York Offices (536 Broadway, Manhattan)
As a global and cosmopolitan city, New York has long been a place of many urban policy struggles.

French geographer Michel Lussault, Commissioner of the NYC Department of Transportation Janette Sadik-Khan, and American author of Traffic: Why We Drive the Way We Do Tom Vanderbilt will help us answer these challenging questions.
