The dispute over New York City streets has unfolded dramatically in the news during recent months and has reached a crescendo with a lawsuit filed against the New York City Department of Transportation (and the department’s commissioner, Janette Sadik-Khan). In her four years as commissioner, Sadik-Khan has been lauded by many, making Esquire magazine’s 2010 “The Brightest: 16 Geniuses Who Give Us Hope” and scorned by her detractors.

On Monday April 4, Commissioner Sadik-Khan will deliver a keynote address at our first Streets Month program. Her address will be followed by a panel discussion with other noted leaders on transportation policy and street design.
