On Wednesday, January 27, 2021, NY4P co-hosted "Investing in Park Infrastructure" with NYU Rudin Center, AECOM, the Trust for Public Land, and New York Building Congress. The program was split into two panel discussions – "The Economic Impact of Park Infrastructure" and "Parks and Big Capital Project Initiatives" – and featured distinguished speakers from the NYC open space, infrastructure, and economic development fields, including NY4P Executive Director Adam Ganser.
"New York is not known for its great buildings - it's known for its great spaces, its parks, its plazas, Times Square. People come here to experience the city."
– Mitchell Moss quoting Paul Goldberger, architecture critic
