Urban Design Week "Six to Celebrate" event at the HDC this Thursday September 15th at 6:00pm

September 15 - 20th
Urban Design Week is a new public festival from our friends at the Institute for Urban Design created to engage New Yorkers in the fascinating and complex issues of the public realm, and to celebrate the streetscapes, sidewalks, and public spaces at the heart of city life. Through an open-call ideas competition and a rich roster of discussions, tours, screenings, workshops, and events across the five boroughs, UDW will highlight the fact that cities are made by collective effort, and that each of us can play a part.

As part of the festivities, HDC will be hosting two events highlighting two of our Six to Celebrate….
