New Yorkers Get Inside View at MAS

The September 22 program Inside View: MAS Work in Progress gave a roomful of New Yorkers a behind-the-scenes look at MAS projects and programs, as well as an opportunity to ask questions and make comments. Jasper Goldman, senior policy analyst, discussed developments in Coney Island and Atlantic Yards and offered an update on the East Side Waterfront Park (the latter accompanied by a film on the park’s design charrette which vividly illustrated the planning process).

Eve Baron, Juan Camilo Osorio, Sideya Sherman, and Lacey Tauber of the MAS Planning Center, described several programs and projects, including The Livable Neighborhoods Program, CITI Youth Initiative and the Atlas of Community-Based Plans.

Judging by the program evaluations, the audience found the evening informative and worthwhile: “Great suggestions were offered to get involved in planning and to become a more informed urbanist” and “Excellent overview of MAS projects and function with good visual support. Have them more often!”

The next Inside View will be held next spring. Stay tuned.
