    Hi, I’m so excited about this contest. The topic that interest me the most is Cities As Stars with David Simon from one of my all time favorite shows – The Wire. If anyone is going to talk intelligently and knowingly about a cities forgotten class it’s David Simon who has spent much of his career first reporting about it and then creating television series around the same premise. New cities should be for everyone not just the 1% and I love to attend this event around this conversation!

  • Hank

    This is an exciting contest and I can appreciate how many people would want to attend.
    As someone who has taught urban history and design for many years at both Colleges and Universities I am deeply appreciative of the importance and uniqueness of such an event. It is truly another one of those reasons to be a New Yorker and live in the center of the universe.

  • Elke Weiss

    I am quite perplexed about the wide range of topics that will be discussed. I can’t decide which one is better, because they all are fantastic! I am so excited to have moved to a city that is so active in developing a better place for everyone living in it. I walk almost 10 miles every day only to see what new things will be developed and how they fit into the overall vision of the city.

  • Alexander Ho

    I would be interested as to how implementing relocation policies would encourage both economic and geographic mobility.

  • Brian August

    Interested in how AR and VR can be used to better visualize and understand real estate development projects.

    Hello – I’m all about keeping abreast on the rapidly emerging challenges in the industry. Thank you for the opportunity to win a free ticket; hope to see you there!

  • Mark Lieberman

    We need out-of-the box thinking as the city expects to grow; Housing, moving and educating 9 million people will be an amazing challenge.

  • Michael P

    Build It and They Will Eat since we are seeing this develop in real time in NYC.

  • lee

    I am interested in the new power of private money at a time when municipal governments are increasingly strapped for cash

  • Brian August

    Very interested in the future of Real Estate Development and how those projects can be visualized using digital mobile media.

  • three60

    Very interested in the Taking the Lead session. NY leads in many areas, but could learn a thing or two from other developing cities.

  • Norma Barbacci

    I am particularly interested in the screening of “Citizen Jane – The Battle for the City.” However, the entire symposium interests me because I am part of a multi-disciplinary, international work-group that is collaborating with Cuban planners, on the development of a sustainable agenda for the future of Havana, Cuba. I believe the lessons from New York could be applicable there…

    • Stephen Laurence

      Ms. Barbacci: A most interesting project that you’re involved in. Can you provide a link for more information? The future of Cuba is also of great interest to me.

  • Tatyana Hill
