FutureCity: The Past, Present and Future of New York with Jason Haber

Jane Jacobs holding papers

More people live in cities than don’t for the first time in history. By 2050, 2 billion more people will live on our planet, two-thirds of whom will live in cities. Simultaneously, many cities, including New York, are ill-prepared for the next storm. New York faces unprecedented challenges. Climate change, mass transit, health care, and housing expenses are creating their own storm. Yet, at the same time, solutions exist that can also make New York better than ever. The question is: how? In FutureCity, using history as a guide, author, public policy professor, political advisor, and real estate expert Jason Haber will explore the perils and possibilities facing New York, and will inspire us to fulfill Jane Jacobs’ visions of a dynamic, supportive city. Presented by Village Preservation and co-sponsored by The New School.
