For the transportation geeks among us (yes, I’m one!), this should be a very interesting panel discussion coming up on January 28th. I am familiar with the work of Aaron, Christine and Elizabeth, and those three alone are worth the “price” of admission.
Moderated by Aaron Naparstek of Streetsblog, this panel discussion featuring New York City’s most successful neighborhood change-makers will provide inspiring and practical lessons about how New Yorkers can transform the public realm.
Panelists include Christine Berthet (Clinton Hells Kitchen Coalition for Pedestrian Safety), Joshua David (Friends of the High Line), Penny Lee (Department of City Planning), Milton Puryear (Brooklyn Greenway Initiative), Paul Steely White (Transportation Alternatives), Robert Witherwax (Grand Army Plaza Coalition), Elizabeth Yeampierre, (UPROSE) and Chauncy Young (Highbridge Community Life Center).
