Re-imagining New York — what would we build?

Doug Balder, Carrie Lobman and Alejandro Gonzalez asked students in their “Dreaming New York” revolutionary conversation series to do some brainstorming to re-imagine Broadway — and specifically the area radiating away from 28th Street and Broadway.

People need relief, a place to rest, to slow down time a bit. Or rather slow themselves down more. Nowadays, you would see everyone going to work, some working overtime, others never resting, multitasking. Having more places, such as greenery would help relieve some of the stress off, as well as let people realize that they could take a break in a place with green.
