How New York City Has Changed for You
I’ve walked down Vanderbilt Avenue many times before, but walking through Vanderbilt Avenue Open Streets on a September evening last year was a revelation.
People filled the space. Kids played. Young people were enraptured in catch-up conversations down blocks of tree-lined concrete median. The brick buildings seemed to glow with more warmth as the sun set and music spilled about.
Inn an instant, I remembered how little New York needs to roar back to life.
