Exhibition imagines Utopian, Green Cities in 2030

Elisabeth Weiman

In an article by USA Today covering the exhibition, Our Cities Ourselves, New York is one of 10 cities chosen by IDTP to imagine what the cities would be like in 2030. Mayor Michael Bloomberg has won acclaim from alternative transportation advocates for putting pedestrian plazas in the middle of Times Square, near Broadway theaters, and in Herald Square, where the Macy's flagship department store is located.

Michael Sorkin along with Terreform who showed at the exhibit is quoted in the article that "his own ideas such as tearing down the lower part of the FDR Drive, which runs along the east side of Manhattan, are equally plausible."

"A year ago nobody thought you could close Broadway," he said. "But suddenly it's closed, and everyone loves it."
