When the New York metropolitan area returns to normal, we will go back to an aging transportation system that is too often unreliable, overcrowded, and uncomfortable. Our subways, trains, and highways were once the best in the world, but no longer meet our needs. What are our prospects for improving them? How should we prioritize our limited resources? Can we compete with other global cities in the 21st century?
Philip Mark Plotch will talk about our current transportation problems, how we got there, and what we can do about them. He will answer questions about your ideas to enhance our transportation network.
Dr. Plotch received his PhD in Urban and Public Policy from Milano in 2014. He is now an associate professor at Saint Peter's University and the author of the books Last Subway and Politics Across the Hudson.
Moderated by Rachel Meltzer, Associate Professor of Urban Policy & Chair, MS Public and Urban Policy Program at the Milano School of Policy, Management, and Environment.
We hope you can join us!
