DOT Commissioner Headlines Monday’s Streets Month Program

New York City Streets - Photo by Nadia ChaudhuryThe 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. Moderator Andrea Bernstein, WNYC, director of the Transportation Nation project Panelists: – Gil Penalosa, executive director of 8-80 Cities and former commissioner of Parks, Sports and Recreation in Bogota, Colombia – Sam Schwartz, president, chief executive officer and founder of Sam Schwartz Engineering – Kate Slevin, executive director of the Tri-State Transportation Campaign Where: Scholastic Auditorium, 557 Broadway at Prince Street When: Monday, April 4th, 6:30 p.m.  – 8:00 p.m. Tickets are still available for this event but space is limited.
