Stopping Traffic: What Open Streets Mean for Neighborhoods

September 27, 2023

From the Greek agora to the Polynesian marae, communal gathering places have always existed in some form. But as cities have grown larger, the need for space has shifted and evolved along with neighborhoods. Streets, plazas, and other gathering spaces are influenced by the people who use them, and they have the potential to strengthen community connection in a big way.

In spring of 2020, when COVID-19 forced businesses and workplaces to shut down and indoor gatherings were discouraged, New York City began its official Open Streets initiative: closing blocks across the city to vehicles and making certain roadways available for foot traffic, outdoor dining, and recreation. 

In this virtual program, NPC is excited to present a myriad of perspectives on the continuing experiment of Open Streets, and what it means for preserving neighborhoods. Community leaders from Jennings St. (Bronx) and 31st Ave (Queens) Open Streets partner organizations, along with representatives from The Hort and the NYC Department of Transportation’s Public Space division, will come together to discuss the concept’s past, present reality, and what the future might hold.

Wednesday, September 27
7:30pm ET
on Zoom
