As deputy mayor for housing and economic development, native New YorkerAlicia Glen’s mandate includes more than 40 agencies and authorities. From empowering women entrepreneurs and preserving public housing to introducing a citywide ferry service, Glen has brought her frank and forthright approach to solving urban problems.
Join us for a conversation between Glen and former “Ethicist” columnist for The New York Times Randy Cohen in a live recording of the radio show Person Place Thing. Glen will tell us about a person, a place, and a thing that have shaped her understanding of cities, and how that understanding has, in turn, shaped her work. Musical performances will be interspersed between the show’s segments.
