How will a new administration define an equitable agenda for transportation, public space, coastal protection?
Do big changes have to come from the top down - or is there a democratic way to shape New York City?
And what do the Dutch know that we don’t?

Joan Byron, Policy Director at the Pratt Center for Community Development
Tracy Metz, journalist and co-author of Sweet and Salt: Water and the Dutch
