Thursday, Rights of Way-Panel Discussion on the bikes and pedestrians in NYC

Thursday, 11/12 6:30 PM
The James Room
4th Floor Barnard Hall

Broadway at West 117th St, (Manhattan)

With the recent turn to pedestrian zones, bike lanes and greenways in New York and in many cities around the world, there is a growing sense that a new kind of urbanism is possible, one no longer dominated by the culture and politics of the automobile. “Rights of Way” will examine the issues surrounding bikes and pedestrianization, and will explore sustainability, finance, public health, and the ways in which the street can serve as a fulcrum in debates about public space and urban life.
