Transportation, energy, high technology and communication infrastructure projects are all planned and funded. How quickly will they provide new jobs? Are they already? What are the prospects for long-term structural improvements to the city's economy? And what's missing from the current plans? Remarks: Christopher O. Ward, Executive Director, Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) Seth W. Pinsky, President, NYC Economic Development Corporation
Followed by a conversation with: Alyssa Katz, Consultant, Pratt Center for Community Development Robert Yaro, President, Regional Plan Association Kathryn S. Wylde, President & CEO, Partnership for New York City
