Open Space Dialogues: From Vacant to Vibrant

New York City is a metropolis that excels in reinvention, and that’s true for land as well. New Yorkers want – and deserve – local open spaces, and creative solutions exist to make vibrancy out of vacancy. This installment of the Open Space Dialogues explores the ways New Yorkers have, and want to, create nontraditional open spaces in unusual places, from a single lot or tunnel to entire neighborhoods and whole islands. Panelists will present and respond to examples from New York City’s past, present, and future of creative open space creation.

  • How have New Yorkers created nontraditional open spaces throughout history?
  • How do we pay for and maintain nontraditional open spaces?
  • What are future ideas for nontraditional open spaces in New York City?
