Pitching the City

#84: attend a neighborhood meeting

With NYC as my community, this was a pretty fabulous community meeting.   Held at St. Patrick's Old Cathedral in SoHo, the Municipal Art Society's "Pitching the City" event gave five idealists the chance to share their visions for improving New York.

Low Line = an underground park in an abandoned subway tunnel

+ Pool = a pool on the Hudson that is filled with filtered river water (think a huge Brita pitcher)

New Lab at the Brooklyn Navy Yard = a space to dream, design and build in big scale

NYFi = payphones as all-purpose, interactive information pods

IRT Powerhouse Reimagined = use this behemoth of a building for the beautiful and innovative

By popular vote, + Pool won with 36% of the pie.
