FUTURE STREETS: LESSONS & PATHS FORWARD FROM OPEN STREETS
Join us in conversation with community leaders, designers, advocates, and policymakers to discuss the future of Open Streets in New York City.

The past year has transformed New York City’s streetscape. Through the Open Streets program, communities across all five boroughs animated streets for joyful gathering, play, education, health, and resiliency. As we emerge from the pandemic and plan for the future of this program, lessons from last summer’s efforts can inform long-term efforts to remake New York City streets.

Presenters from Street Lab, the 34th Avenue Open Streets Coalition, the Neighborhoods Now Jackson Heights Working Group, Washington Heights Expeditionary Learning School, and Transportation Alternatives will discuss Open Streets activations in Queens, Brooklyn, and Manhattan. Then, Emily Weidenhof(NYC DOT) and Erick Gregory (NYC City Planning) will join us as respondents in conversation with Christian V. Braneon to discuss: what lessons can we draw from last summer’s Open Streets to catalyze creative street uses?

This event is co-hosted by Columbia University Center for Resilient Cities and Landscapes, Transportation Alternatives, the Urban Design Forum, Van Alen Institute, and Columbia Environmental Justice Climate Just Cities Network.
