Event description

Description

While chain stores proliferate along neighborhood main streets, a simultaneous phenomenon of storefront vacancy threatens the character of NYC’s famously vibrant street life as landlords push out small business owners, holding out for higher-paying tenants. Join Center for an Urban Future Executive Director Jonathan Bowles, author of Vanishing New York: How a Great City Lost Its Soul Jeremiah Moss, and Director of Economic Policy at the Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development Lena Afridi for a conversation moderated by Vanity Fair contributing editor Paul Goldberger as they consider how to counteract the “mall-ification” of public space and commerce in NYC.
