Event description

Description

Starting with Jane Jacobs's first campaign against Robert Moses, urbanists have argued that public space is a critical component of a healthy, vibrant city. But what if people fear for their safety on their own street? In Brownsville, through the work of the Brownsville Community Justice Center, residents have leveraged urban planning tools to transform neglected spaces into safe, vibrant public hubs. Ginia Bellafante of the New York Times, moderates a conversation with Erica Mateo and Deron Johnston from the Brownsville Community Justice Center, and David Burney, Director of Pratt's Urban Placemaking and Management program, exploring the successes and challenges of placemaking in Brownsville.

Offered in partnership with the Center for Court Innovation.
