In The New York Times: How New York City Has Changed for You

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.
