Shifting Gears: Janette Sadik-Kahn
At a more-than-full house on October 19, Janette Sadik-Kahn, the Transportation Commissioner of New York City, gave one of the most exciting talks in our Shifting Gears series.
Here’s a brief summary from the Planning Pool, a blog from the students at UBC’s SCARP:
It was such a pleasure to see such a brilliant woman with a clear sense of humor in the position of transit commissioner, in a stereotypically serious, male dominated field. As the “largest real estate developer in New York” she is practicing “urban acupuncture” in the form of new bike lanes, linear plazas (Herald Square and Times Square), Hudson River greenway, regulations regarding indoor parking, increased number of street bike racks, select bus service in the Bronx, Summer Streets and more.
And, as usual, a summary from the Scribe of Richmond, Stephen Rees.
