A New Deal for New York City: Looking Back, Looking Forward

Please mark your calendars and make plans to attend the Living New Deal—New York City's first public program.

WHEN:       Tuesday, May 7, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
WHERE: The Center for Architecture
536 LaGuardia Place, Manhattan (between West 3rd and Bleecker Streets)

At a time when the Green New Deal is in the headlines and on the table, we aim to reacquaint our fellow New Yorkers with the original New Deal. How did a group of visionary reformers transform the city during that exceptional ten-year period? What can today's change-makers learn from their achievements? On May 7, a distinguished panel will address these questions and more.

Keynote speaker—historian, journalist, novelist, and political commentator Kevin Baker—will be joined by a panel of commentators that includes:

Phoebe Roosevelt, a great-granddaughter of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, will offer welcoming remarks.

The event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.


Living New Deal—NYC is a special project of Living New Deal, a Berkeley-based non-profit that has been mapping the entirety of what the New Deal accomplished in this country—close to 16,000 sites nationwide and counting.
