Changing New York is a Roosevelt House Public Policy Forum dedicated to understanding the social, cultural and political forces shaping New York in the 21st century. Building upon the success of “The Road to November: Exploring America’s Challenges on the way to Election 2012,” this series focuses on the challenges facing the city in the new de Blasio Administration. The varied series features panel discussions, film screenings and lectures that explore such topics as immigration; “gentrification” and minority population displacement; the continuing debates about economic policy and jobs; and other subjects embracing the past, present – and future – of the city’s five boroughs.
