NYC 1972-2012: Forty years of change and continuity

Presented by the Center for New York City Affairs and the Milano Graduate School of International Affairs, Management and Urban Policy


To celebrate the 40th anniversary of The New School’s graduate program in Urban Policy Analysis and Management, scholars and policymakers discuss our city’s evolution since the early 1970s. Neighborhoods have been revived and rebuilt, migrations have transformed the five boroughs, local government has gone from the edge of insolvency to a steadier state. Yet the New York of 1972 is strikingly similar to the city of today, with complex problems, relentless development and a lasting culture of activist government, philanthropy, advocacy and social justice. What are the challenges of today in comparison to those of the past? How can policy decisions made over the past 40 years influence the city’s future?
