  • VIRTUAL: The Creation of Hudson River Park and the Challenges of Waterfront Resiliency

    May 29, 2024 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

    The City Club of New York is delighted to invite you to a very exciting webinar planned for May 29th at 6:30 PM.

    This webinar will feature speakers Tom Fox, author and expert on the Hudson River Park, Amy Chester, Managing Director of Rebuild by Design, and Alice Blank, Chair of Manhattan Community Board 1 Environmental Protection Committee . (Panel in formation)

    The creation of the Hudson River Park spanned decades, with Tom Fox playing a pivotal role.

    His book Creating the Hudson River Park: Environmental and Community Activism, Politics, and Greed (Rutgers University Press) tells the story of the park's creation. He addresses the challenges of waterfront resiliency. 

    We will dive into the depths of options for waterfront resiliency with Tom Fox, in conversation with Amy Chester and Alice Blank. The discussion will be moderated by senior reporter Michael Oreskes.

    Join us as we explore creative strategies for safeguarding the West Side waterfront as described in Tom’s new book. As New York City  continues the revitalization of our magnificent waterfronts, creative nature-based approaches must be part of the city’s plan to adapt to climate change and urban waterfront development.

    Following the panel discussion, panelists will answer questions from the audience.

    Date: May 29, 2024
    Time: 6.30pm
    Zoom Webinar

     

    Here's what the press has to say about Tom Fox' book: 

    “A valuable recounting of a public-private partnership and how to make things work (and why they don’t).” Sam Roberts, The New York Times.

    Creating the Hudson River Park is important, relevant, and of continuing interest."
    —Kenneth T. Jackson, author of Crabgrass Frontier: The Suburbanization of the United States.

    Get ready for an engaging webinar experience! Our session will  kick off with an insightful panel discussion followed by a Q&A session.
