Open Space Dialogues 2

Open Space Dialogues:
From Vacant to Vibrant

Join Us Monday, November 19

​New York City is a metropolis that excels in reinvention, and that's true for land as well. New Yorkers want - and deserve - local open spaces, and creative solutions exist to make vibrancy out of vacancy. This installment of the Open Space Dialogues explores the ways New Yorkers have, and want to, create nontraditional open spaces in unusual places, from a single lot or tunnel to entire neighborhoods and whole islands.
