Problems and possibilities with Times Sq. streetscape.
The presentation by Tim Tompkins, president of the alliance, will take place in the 30th Floor Conference Center of 3 Times Square, giving attendees a bird's eye view of the problems and the potential of the Times Square streetscape.
It is open to the public, free of charge and held on June 1 at 6:30 p.m. "We are all aware of the great strides that have been made in Times Square over the past decade," says Tompkins. "But with the increased diversity of uses in the neighborhood have come increasing problems--from an unattractive streetscape unworthy of a world-class public space to pedestrian overcrowding which creates a public safety hazard. This report, 'Problems and Possibilities,' is honest about the area's problems and resourceful in suggesting practical solutions. The Alliance worked with an eclectic mix of designers, urbanists, artists, planners and public servants to make this report as insightful and pro-active as possible."
