    Once the “Times Square of the Bronx”,  with Laurence Frommer

    When: Saturday, October 20,  2:00-4:00 PM
    Tickets: Member $20; Non-member: $30

    The area where 149th Street intersects with Third, Willis, and Melrose Avenues was once known as “the Times Square of the Bronx” because it served as a hub for transportation, shopping, and cultural sites, including a grand 1910 opera house. Can the “Bronx Hub” be reborn in the 21st century as the center of a new “Downtown Bronx?” As we visit this crossroads of possibilities we will ask: “Why hasn’t the Hub seen as much new development as downtown Jamaica despite its greater proximity to Manhattan?” Are location and substantial infrastructure enough – or are there other important ingredients that must be present for successful redevelopment?

    Housing, Transit, Art and more in Central Queens, with Laurence Frommer

    When: Sunday, September 16,  2:00-4:00 PM
    Tickets: Member $20; Non-member: $30

    This Queens neighborhood seems poised for a major comeback. It’s on the cusp of recapturing some of what was lost to postwar suburbanization. A major transportation hub has become the nexus for numerous bus, subway and suburban commuter lines and air-train to JFK International Airport. New government office buildings are to be followed by a large new entertainment and retail complex, performing arts facilities, private sector office buildings, a central headquarters for the LIRR, a new CUNY Aviation Institute at York College intended to attract numerous air transit-related businesses to the area, and the first market-rate housing in almost a century.
