The COVID-19 pandemic has driven people, and a range of new activities, outdoors. Simultaneously, the pandemic has brought inequities in access to green space into stark relief. How has the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation worked to meet these challenges, and how has the present moment provided insight into how parks and public space can be redesigned in the future?

Join us for a conversation between Commissioner Mitchell J. Silver, FAICP, PP, RTPI (hon.), FPIA (hon.), ASLA (hon.), and Marshall Brown, Associate Professor of Architecture at Princeton and Director of the Princeton Urban Imagination Center.
