This spring, the Forum invited distinguished civic leaders, developers and designers to pitch bold visions for a more competitive, livable and sustainable New York. The result was more than forty courageous proposals imagining rebuilt infrastructure, reformed government, and an animated public realm.

Among the proposals were new express connections to the region’s airports, a park capping the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, an extension of the Roosevelt Island Tram, new light rail for the Long Island City and Brooklyn waterfronts, the creation of the New York City Department of Food, re-skinned public housing, and reforms to ease the production of affordable housing.

On July 30, 2013 the Forum for Urban Design hosted the Summer Fellows Forum and Dinner with Dan Doctoroff and John Zuccotti to celebrate the launch of the Next New York Publication.

The Next New York publication is now available for purchase. An online version of the project may be found here.
