    New York City Roundtable: COVID-19 Impacts for the Retail/Restaurant Industries – Part II

    Purpose: Discuss the economic and social impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic in NYC with a particular focus on the consequences for the City’s retail/restaurant industries. In addition to following up on New York’s recovery initiatives, the discussion will highlight experiences of local business owners, explore changes in the real estate market, examine the continuing financial impact, and touch upon the future of urban planning. We had the part 1 of this event in June and are excited to bring our guests along for a follow up discussion.


    Event Description: As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to weigh heavily on the economy of the United States, state and local jurisdictions are challenged to deal with the economic consequences without help from the federal government. New York City’s retail and restaurant industries have deployed creative strategies to stay open during this period, while the City explores long-term borrowing options to fund critical government operations and projects. The New York Metro Chapter of the American Planning Association Economic Development Committee, brings together a range of experts to provide insight on the economic toll the virus has inflicted on the City and what lies ahead in the struggle for recovery.

  • Economic Development Committee & Waterfront Committee's Panel Discussion Event: Impacts of New York City's Secondary Waterways

    WHEN: Tuesday, February 25, 2020 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

    APA NY-Metro Chapter Presents;  Panel Discussion Event: Impacts of New York City’s Secondary Waterways 

    Join Economic Development Committee & Waterfront Committee for an exciting panel discussion on February 25th, 2020 (Tuesday)

    In the early 1800’s, many of NYC’s secondary waterways were once tidal estuaries and creeks that were later excavated or filled for commercial use. They became home to NYC’s industrial base. The maritime infrastructure created in the 18~1900s continues to support NYC’s overall economy. NYCEDC initiated a study in Oct 2015 to better understand the value of NYC’s secondary waterways and identify opportunities to grow waterborne commerce. Water freight provides significant public benefits by limiting truck use improving air quality, lowering our carbon footprint, reducing roadway congestion, and providing good-paying middle-class jobs.
