    Zoning for Public Good

    At the Museum of the City of New York

    Thursday, January 26, at 6:30 pm

    In the face of rapid new development, New Yorkers are grappling with how to best ensure that private investment doesn’t come at the expense of access to some of the city’s most valuable assets: open space, transportation, and affordable housing. Through zoning, the city is helping to foster this balance, creating benefits for the public as seen in examples such as Brooklyn Bridge Park and Mayor Bill de Blasio’s affordable housing plan. This program delves into the themes of Mastering the Metropolis: New York and Zoning, 1916-2016.
