Come out to the Blueprint Launch…

October 23, 2008

Maybe you made it to the amazing event last November at the JCC which featured Jan Gehl, the famous Danish urban design/architect.  Or, maybe you have no clue what I am talking about…but, at this event, people saw, some for the first time, how wonderfully pedestrian-oriented our city could be.  Streets don’t have to be just about cars.  We saw at this event that streets should be alive with PEOPLE…bike riders, walkers, places for people to sit and share a coffee with a friend.  This event, called Livable Streets, kicked off a community-led effort to shape our neighborhoods into these more people-friendly places.  On November 13, the Upper West Side Streets Renaissance Campaign will unveil their blueprint for the Upper West Side.  This launch is being held at P.S. 87 (West 78th Street between Columbus and Amsterdam) from 6:30-8:30 p.m.  RSVP here.
