Forty years after the reign of city planner Robert Moses, key city players described urbanism in the 21st century and set out their vision for the future. Topics included regional planning, open space initiatives, transportation, sustainable development, and New York’s role as an international city. James S. Russell moderated this program featuring a keynote address by Deputy Mayor Daniel Doctoroff and a roundtable discussion.
