    THURSDAY • AUGUST 5 • 6:30 PM

    The Future of the Car in the City

    New York’s streets are contested space, with pedestrians, bicyclists, cars, buses, and trucks all jockeying for room.

    Although New Yorkers have one of the lowest rates of vehicle ownership, the negative impacts of cars—pollution, declining street safety, and congestion—are becoming increasingly clear and demand thoughtful solutions.

    What strategies will keep things moving: car-free “eco-zones,” congestion pricing, peak metering, or others— in light of increased pressures on the streetscape?

    Join panelists Vishaan Chakrabarti, Marc Holliday Professor of Real Estate and Director of the Real Estate Development program in the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation at Columbia University , Shin-pei Tsay, Deputy Director of Transportation Alternatives, and others for a discussion on the future of the car in New York .

    Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Cars, Culture, and the City. Reservations required. $6, Museum members; $12, Non-members; $8, Seniors and students.
