Please join the Community-Based Planning Task Force Executive Committee, the Municipal Art Society Planning Center, and Urban Center Books in celebrating the release of Executive Committee member Tom Angotti’s new book: New York For Sale: Community Planning Confronts Global Real Estate.

“Too many books focus merely on the problems of center cities or propose planning solutions only applicable in greenfield sites. Angotti chronicles a significant alternative – the 100 or more community-based plans developed in New York City since the 1960s. This is an important and compelling story of ‘urban policy from the bottom up.'” – Ann Fosyth, Department of City and Regional Planning, Cornell University reviewing New York For Sale.

Angotti, who serves as Director of the Hunter College Center for Community Planning and Development, will present his compelling new book on community-based planning and the market forces that drive New York City real estate. Reception to follow.

November 18, 6:30-8:00pm, at the Urban Center, 457 Madison Ave. Free. Reservations are strongly recommended due to limited capacity. Call 212-935-2075.
