Join the USC Sol Price School of Public Policy for the annual series of conversations in New York about hot-button policy issues facing the nation. Network with fellow New York USC alumni and participate in thought-provoking discussions with government experts, educators, and policy analysts.

In a discussion moderated by USC Price Professor Richard Green, cultural innovators Laurie Beckelman and Adam Ganser will join government relations experts Kyle Kimball and Richard Barth to dissect the roles of public and private enterprise in placemaking through the lens of the Hudson Yards.   
The Hudson Yards project, built on land that was isolated for years by an uninviting working rail yard, is the single largest private real estate development in the history of the United States.  In Manhattan, where land is scarce and hard to secure, innovative decisions and public-private partnerships were critical to ensure that the land was maximized to balance the interests of the surrounding community. 

Self-parking is available with the Icon parking garage located at 38 West 43rd Street (between 5th and 6th avenues).

The Harvard Club of NYC is also conveniently located within walking distance of the 42nd St./ Bryant Park subway station.  

Register here by Wednesday, September 22nd.
