As deputy mayor for housing and economic development, native New YorkerAlicia Glen’s mandate includes more than 40 agencies and authorities. From empowering women entrepreneurs and preserving public housing to introducing a citywide ferry service, Glen has brought her frank and forthright approach to solving urban problems.

Join us for a conversation between Glen and former “Ethicist” columnist for The New York Times  Randy Cohen in a live recording of the radio show Person Place Thing. Glen will tell us about a person, a place, and a thing that have shaped her understanding of cities, and how that understanding has in turn shaped her work. Musical performances will be interspersed between the show’s segments.

This event is part of the fall 2016 program festival, MandateView additional events.
