NEW YORK—Many propositions have been put forth to relieve traffic in the city, including reinstituting bridge tolls on the free East River bridges; the Brooklyn Bridge, the Manhattan Bridge, the Queensboro Bridge, and the Williamsburg Bridge.
A panel of transportation experts and advocates will gather Thursday evening from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. to discuss this issue, with an emphasis on downtown Manhattan, and afterward take questions from the audience. The event is presented by Community Board 2 and New York University’s Office of Government and Community Affairs.
The panelists are: Paul Steely White, executive director of Transportation Alternatives;
Kate Slevin, executive director of Tri-State Transportation Campaign; Hope Cohen, director, Regional Plan Association; and Charles Komanoff, transportation analyst.
RSVP is recommended for the event, at NYU’s Casa Italiana at 24 W. 12th St. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 212-998-2400.
