Once again, the Pace University Law School brings in an excellent speaker to fire up the room. This is consistently the best land use conference in New York State--and there a lot of very, very good conferences! The quality of presenters and the topics chosen are never disappointing. A forward-looking approach is always taken. Excellent.

Taking maryjane off the excuse book for cops to harass, intimidate, arrest, prosecute and imprison otherwise non-aggressive and law abiding persons is an essential starting point for New Yorkers to come together as a color blind community.

It would have been useful to have someone on the panel who did not necessarily agree with the changes the neighborhood went through. High rents and low vacancy rates are important to real estate developers, but they are not the only metric of success.

Hudson Square: Celebrating 10 Years of Community

5

This was really interesting. Unfortunately I think most of the funding and other program legislation is specific to New York City, which won't help me in Orange County, but it was instructive in how such a program could work.
