Art, Design, and the Urban Environment: Urban Revitalization and East Harlem Rezoning
Focusing on urban revitalization through the lens of East Harlem rezoning and updated land use policies, this panel will look specifically at projects currently under way in East Harlem, including the renovation of the former P.S.109 into affordable live and work space for artists, and the transformation of La Marqueta, a marketplace under the Metro North railway tracks between 111th and 116th Streets that was once the economic and social center of the neighborhood.
