What’s Next for New York, a Times Virtual Event
As the city rouses from Covid restrictions, explore the city’s fiscal, cultural and political future with the mayoral nominee Eric Adams and others.
How many times has the downfall of New York City been foretold? Yet with vaccinations in arms and the lifting of many restrictions, our outlook on urban life is growing more hopeful. Join us as we talk to N.Y.C. icons, including democratic mayoral nominee Eric Adams, about the city’s future.
With a high population density, reliance on subway systems and plethora of public spaces, many experts predicted the decline of New York — and other cities like it — during the coronavirus pandemic. Yet with vaccination rates rising and the easing of many Covid-19 restrictions, even in spite of the emergence of new variants, the city’s outlook seems to point toward a lighter and more hopeful future.
What does the path forward for New York City look like? How does its revival influence the comeback of other big cities across the country?
Join us as New Yorkers, including the Democratic mayoral nominee, Eric Adams, and the playwright and actor Jeremy O. Harris, sit down with the Times journalists Astead Herndon, Emma G. Fitzsimmons and Jazmine Hughes to uncover what the future holds for New York — culturally, financially and politically.
It’s all part of our latest subscriber-only event. Looking forward to seeing you there.
