Milano The New School for Management and Urban Policy present: Community Development and the Mega City - Part Two with a discussion by Rohit Aggarwala, Errol Louis, Maria Mottola, Sheena Wright and Kathryn S. Wylde.
With large-scale developments underway in every borough, the physical face of New York City is already changing on a scale unseen in decades - even as the Bloomberg administration is planning for sustainable growth of nearly a million more residents by 2030. What are the implications for more livable neighborhoods and community renewal? Can City Hall's vision survive beyond the current mayoralty and the latest economic boom?
Errol Louis was formerly an associate editor of The New York Sun. He has taught college courses, co-founded an inner-city community credit union, run for City Council and was once named by New York Magazine as one of 10 New Yorkers Making a Difference "with energy, vision and independent thinking."
He became a writer for the New York Daily News in June 2004. He also writes a column, Commerce and Community, for Our Time Press, which is published twice a month and based in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn. Louis is often featured on news television shows, including CNN's Lou Dobbs.
Louis holds degrees from Harvard, Yale, and Brooklyn Law School. He was raised in New Rochelle and lives in Crown Heights, Brooklyn with his wife, Juanita Scarlett. He is the son of a retired NYPD inspector.
