Berger, president of the Alliance for Downtown New York, will moderate the panel, following an introduction by Frances A. Resheske, senior vice president of Public Affairs at Consolidated Edison, Inc.  Jason Schupbach, director of Design Grant Programs, National Endowment for the Arts, will give an introductory keynote address, looking at the topic from a national perspective. Panelists include Tim Tompkins, president of the Times Square Alliance, Nicholas Baume, the director and chief curator of the Public Art Fund, Sam Miller, president of the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Marci Reaven, managing director at Place Matters & City Lore, and Roberta Gratz, journalist and author of recently published “The Battle For Gotham: New York in the Shadow of Robert Moses and Jane Jacobs,” and a member of the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission. *photo credit: BrooklynBug
