Plan 2050: For a Post-Moses New York

09 May 6:30pm - 8:30pm
Organized by: ReThink Studio
Venue: The Great Hall at the Cooper Union
7 E 7th Street
New York

"In the twen­ti­eth cen­tu­ry, the influ­ence of Robert Moses on the cities of America was greater than that of any oth­er per­son.”    –Lewis Mumford


Robert Moses fun­da­men­tal­ly altered New York in the 20th cen­tu­ry, and his lega­cy con­tin­ues to shape the region to this day. But New York now faces a unique oppor­tu­ni­ty to move beyond the Moses era; by prop­er­ly rein­vest­ing in our infra­struc­ture, we can build a world class region­al net­work that makes it pos­si­ble to get from any­where to every­where.


Please join us on May 9 in envi­sion­ing a Post-Moses New York, what it means for the city, and how to make it a real­i­ty.
