Join the Urban Design Forum for a discussion on designing an inclusive public realm under the next mayor with Seb Choe, Lindsay Harkema, Margaret Jankowsky, Inbar Kishoni, and Justin Garrett Moore.
Thriving neighborhoods have beautiful parks, well-maintained plazas, lively high streets, and welcoming public buildings that encourage New Yorkers to gather and interact. Yet marginalized communities often lack accessibility or a sense of belonging to neighborhood public amenities.
To repair decades of exclusion from the design process, cities like Toronto and Vienna are beginning to redesign public space for women, seniors, children, BIPOC, and people with disabilities.
As we envision a new city under the next administration, how do we shape a democratic and accessible public realm that serves the most often excluded?
