Imagine New York to Release Results of WTC Memorial Workshops

imagine new york logoThe Imagine New York staff has reviewed the public’s comments on the World Trade Center memorial designs, gathered from public workshops in New Canaan, CT; Elizabeth, NJ; and Pace University and September Space in New York City. In addition, the project’s Web site, http://www.imaginenewyork.org/, has been accepting public feedback on the designs, and has gathered over 12,000 comments in the past two weeks. The summary report of results from the workshops and Web site will be released this week. Stay tuned.

Imagine New York III: Toward the People’s Memorial

imagine new york logoOn November 19, the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation announced eight finalists for the memorial at the World Trade Center site. The Municipal Art Society’s Imagine New York project held a series of public workshops in lower Manhattan to allow the public to give feedback on the new designs. The workshops featured a visit to the exhibit of the final designs at the Winter Garden, followed by a two-hour workshop discussion. If you couldn’t make it to the workshops, you can still view the designs on the Imagine New York website and submit your comments. All of the findings from the workshops and the website will be compiled into a summary report and submitted to decision makers. Whether in person or online, Imagine New York is a great way to weigh in on this important topic.
