  • Norma Lincoln

    “Aspirations and Angst: What do our TV shows tell us about our cities?” looks great and interesting. Love Broad City!

  • D. Johnston

    Hungry Metropolis. It’d be interesting to hear what the panelists have to say about food’s role in gentrification – in addition to all the pros.

  • Callie Clark

    I’m interested in the “Preservation: Pride or Prejudice” with Ed Glaeser.

  • designnerd

    I’d love to hear Jeanne Gang speak. She’s such an underrated architect; She’s got style and she seamlessly brings sustainability to the heart of her projects. I’m surprised that she hasn’t gotten more NYC commissions.

  • Marc_from_Brooklyn

    Ed Glaeser’s talk

  • Neema Fotoohi

    Teaching Rich and Poor Alike. Teaching the future what is possible and I find this can be a big boon to urban areas.

  • Rebeca Rumayor
  • nicole

    I would like to attend the conference

  • Sid

    I love to hear Edward Glaeser – Preservation: Pride or Prejudice?

  • Alex Gomez

    As a New York City employee I would love to attend the conference just to hear Mayor Barry’s “Change From The Ground Up” talk on how streamlined bureaucracy can improve/solve some of a city’s biggest issues.

  • neoclectic

    Entry comment: How can city infrastructure problems be addressed, i.e. combined sewer overflows, leaking water, sewer and gas pipelines, overhead electrical wiring? Will 3D printed, modular components with embedded smart systems play a role by replacing the existing networks?

  • Corey Dyer

    I am a real estate financial and market analyst in New York City. I also attend/consult for the New York City Landmark Preservation Commission and Neighborhood Coalition for Shelter. I am very interested to hear the opinions of each speaker regarding preservation and the economic impact of urban real estate moving forward within various markets.

  • Nadya Nilina

    Frankly, there is not a presentation I don’t want to hear. It is going to be fabulous all around.
