Join Gallatin professors Louise Harpman and Becky Amato as we explore Long Island City, Queens, for the 9th annual BIG WALK.

We will be thinking together about the deep past (glaciers!), recent past (mass manufacturing!), and future of LIC (art, design, architecture, development, and clean waterways!) Please join us and our roster of amazing guests.

The BIG WALK, sponsored by NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study and the Urban Democracy Lab, is free and open to the public. Reservations are required.
