Kayden, the conference features prominent experts who will describe the challenges facing New York City and the role zoning should and should not play in meeting them. The conference will explore the possibilities and limitations of zoning as a tool to be employed by New York City as it seeks to compete globally, to offer economic and social opportunities for all its citizens, to ensure a sustainable environment, and to enhance its public realm.
