Gridlock!: Congestion and Flow on New York City Streets

Recent innovations by the Department of Transportation have helped to remake the multiple ways New Yorkers get from point a to point b; pedestrian malls, bike lanes, and bus-only lanes are reshaping traffic flows in New York City. Learn how traffic engineers and city planners work to keep traffic moving and explore the innovative and sometimes controversial reforms being made to the streets of New York. Guest curator Hilary Ballon moderates a discussion with Sam Schwartz (a.k.a. “Gridlock Sam”); Bruce Schaller, New York City Deputy Commissioner for Planning and Sustainability; and Jeffrey Zupan, Regional Plan Association.
