With high demand for limited space, New Yorkers are continually on the lookout for newer and larger public realms. In order to meet this demand for space, several recent and ongoing projects have focused on repurposing the city’s abandoned and under-utilized transportation and infrastructure sites. These projects depend upon the collaboration between city agencies, community organizations, and public-private partnerships to create healthier, more sustainable public spaces.
Join the AIANY Transportation and Infrastructure Committee for a panel discussion about collaborative projects that make outdated infrastructure a vital part of the urban experience.
