ASLA NY: A multidisciplinary panel explores the challenges and opportunities our streetscapes represent to advance health, safety, resilience, and civic life.
Streetscapes in the heart of NYC can present a host of challenges. Limited space in the public right of way must host a proliferation of urban infrastructure: bioswales, wi-fi kiosks, security barricades, trees, pop-up cafes, bike-share stations, street furniture, public art, and more. Can this proliferation of uses in the limited space be reimagined through smart and sensitive streetscape design? How can all these competing resources be maintained?
