… and then, we party!

As a preview to Bike Month NYC, Sustainable Flatbush Event #2 | Livable Streets features short films celebrating alternative transportation and pedestrian-oriented public spaces. Interviews with Enrique Peñalosa (former mayor of Bogota, Colombia), Jan Gehl (urban planner from Copenhagen, Denmark), citizens of Portland, Oregon, and local NYC activists will illustrate how cities can improve their quality of life by planning for people instead of for cars.
Special guest Clarence Eckerson is the Director of Video Production for NYC Streets Renaissance, a coalition that advocates for rebalancing our city’s public space away from private vehicles and toward community needs, including walking, biking, and public transportation. He is the creator of most of the films on this event’s program.
