A Biography of East New York

Jul 14, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

| $5

East New York is where NYC’s future is going to happen, where City Hall plans affordable and inclusive housing, with residents and industry existing side by side. But East New York is by geography, class and race a far distance from the city’s centers of power and influence. To understand what it might become, hear from a panel of residents, advocates and experts on how the neighborhood got to where it is now.

Moderated by Jarrett Murphy, Editor and Publisher of City Limits, panelists include Michelle Neugebauer, Executive Director, Cypress Hill Local Development Corporation; Patricia Worthy, longtime East New York resident; Winston Von Engel, Director, New York City Department of City Planning, Brooklyn Office; and Brandon Gibson, Founder and CEO of Light Rock Holdings LLC and longtime resident.
