LICNYC: A Design Perspective / PT2 LIC


Well before Amazon proposed its 14-acre campus on the Queens waterfront, Long Island City was the fastest growing neighborhood in the country. From Court Square to the waterfront, new development and new residents have been settling around and within well-established communities, altering everything from the affordability of housing to the character of the neighborhood itself. Join designers, historians, planners, and community residents as they consider how design might help harmonize the old with the new and improve the quality of life amidst the surge of private development, and the everyday stress that comes along with rapid growth.

This discussion will be moderated by Emily Nonko and feature panelists Margie Ruddick, Stephen Petrus, Frank Wu, Zachary Hecht, and Sheila Lewandowski.
