In a city driven by the real estate market, where every inch of space is a commodity, it can be easy to overlook the personal, felt experience of having a home – and the daily struggles for those whose concept of home is threatened or elusive. Explore the emotional and psychological dimensions of personal space, home-making, and connections to place in a non-stop city like New York with an evening of stories and discussion featuring:

Zaheer Ali, Oral historian at Brooklyn Historical Society (BHS)
Eric Bunge, co-founding principal of nARCHITECTS, a Brooklyn-based architecture firm
Dr. Mindy Fullilove, author of Root Shock: How Tearing Up City Neighborhoods Hurts America
Annie Ling, documentary photographer featured in our current exhibition Interior Lives
Tanvi Misra (moderator), staff writer for CityLab, the urban-focused site of The Atlantic

This program is co-presented by CityLab.
