Zoning for Public Good

Thursday, January 26, 2017
Museum of the City of New York, 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. 

Presented in collaboration with The Municipal Art Society, this program delves into the themes of the Museum’s exhibition Mastering the Metropolis, New York and Zoning, 1916-2016. Speakers include RPA Director of Community Planning & Design Moses Gates.
