Welcome to the New York Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city.

LES NYC: My Essex Crossing

08 December 1:00pm - 4:00pm
Organized by: Van Alen Institute
Venue: GrandLo Café
168 Broome Street
New York, NY

Drop in at GrandLo Café for coffee, cookies, hot chocolate, and sharing. Share your stories about your changing neighborhood with Ghana ThinkTank (GTT), an international artist collective that flips the definition of expert. 


As a way of inverting the power dynamics that control urban development, GTT will ask Lower East Side residents to tackle problems and challenges that Essex Crossing’s developers and designers have identified and come up against every day.
