New York City's groundbreaking 1916 Zoning Resolution inspired major cities around the world to create their own zoning codes. One hundred years later, what can New York learn from the approaches that other cities have taken to zoning? Some municipalities, like Philadelphia, have overhauled their ordinances altogether - should New York consider such a sweeping change? Join to discuss zoning beyond the five boroughs. 
 
This is the fifth and final program in a series in conjunction with MCNY's new exhibition Mastering the Metropolis: New York and Zoning, 1916-2016To view the full series click here.
