What is your favorite urban space and why?

Staten Island Ferry, no contest. It was a bargain when it was a nickel, and even when it went up to a quarter. Now it's free! You can't get more iconic than the Manhattan skyline at dusk, Liberty Enlightening the World, all the bridges, the seagulls, the salt spray and the romance. It has been, and remains, one of the most beautiful features of our fair metropolis.

What do you hope to get from URBAN SPACEship?

Look forward to sharing creative energy, collective information, and collaborative effort to use and re-imagine public spaces in new ways. The High Line and the proposed Low Line are perfect examples of thinking outside the box in a way that resonates with urban dwellers.


Lifelong New Yorker and incessant social activist. Especially interested in integrating our concrete jungle with the vibrant waterways that surround us.
