A New York institution is getting a makeover—and a new name. The 92nd Street Y announced on Tuesday it has rebranded to 92nd Street Y, New York (with a nickname of 92NY), as part of a post-pandemic transformation that also involves a major revamp and new online programs. This month, a $200 million redevelopment of the organization’s Upper East Side home at 1395 Lexington Avenue will begin, starting with a renovation of its public performance space, a new dance center, and improvements to the gym.

The past seven months fighting the coronavirus in New York City have laid bare the inequalities that exist in housing, infrastructure, open space access, and wellness. How can the largest city in the United States sustainably recover after COVID-19 while prioritizing the health of all of its residents? Industry leaders will explore this topic and the future of the city during a two-day virtual summit this month hosted by 92nd Street Y and Hundred Stories. The fourth annual “City of Tomorrow: Building a Better Future” summit will take place virtually on October 13 and October 14, with all talks free for the public to view.
