The Vanishing City: A Town Hall Discussion
Development is radically changing the face of New York City. Long-time residents, small businesses and artists are being pushed out at a rapid rate. Vanishing NY asks: You can’t stop development, so how then do you preserve the things that make this city one of the most unique places in the world? “The Vanishing City” is a town hall discussion which attempts to answer that question, featuring “Twilight Becomes Night,” the acclaimed short film by Virginie-Alvine Perrette, a preview of the work-in-progress documentary, “Vanishing New York” by Jen Senko and Fiore DeRosa. Join moderator Michael Karp as he leads a panel discussion featuring Village Preservation Executive Director Andrew Berman, Good Jobs New York Director Bettina Damiani, New York State Assemblymember Deborah Glick and filmmakers Fiore DeRosa and Jen Senko.
