61 Wythe Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11249
Time: 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
STREETFIGHT deconstructs how New York City’s former Director of Transportation Janette Sadik-Khan transformed the streets of one of the world’s toughest cities into dynamic spaces that are safe for pedestrians and bikers.
During her time as New York City’s Director of Transportation from 2007 to 2013, under former mayor Michael Bloomberg, Janette Sadik-Khan achieved the seemingly impossible and transformed the streets of one of the world’s toughest cities into dynamic spaces that are safe for pedestrians and bikers. In STREETFIGHT: Handbook for an Urban Revolution, Sadik-Khan and Seth Solomonow deconstruct how she achieved this feat in New York City, while offering an empowering road map for rethinking, reinvigorating, and redesigning city streets across the country to function better for the people and communities that use them.
