Event description

Description

"Transport, more than anything else, changes a place."

-John Betjeman, British poet

Robert Moses' legacy continues to shape our city, from Penn Station to the outer limits of the region and everywhere in between. By ReThinking how we invest in our public transit infrastructure, we can build a world-class region that makes it possible to get from anywhere to everywhere.

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