Talk: Beyond the High Line: Transforming Detroit


Join us for a presentation and discussion of new and revived public spaces in Detroit like the International Riverfront and Riverwalk, the Dequindre Cut, Roosevelt Park, and Ponyride.

Faye Alexander Nelson of the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy, and Phillip Cooley of the Roosevelt Park Conservancy, will share their experiences on public space in Detroit and the role it has had in the city’s evolution.

Stick around after the talk for a reception featuring Detroit-style Coney hot dogs for sale from Bark and Detroit music by DJ Aaron Luis Levinson of Philadelphia, who specializes in unearthing rare grooves and forgotten gems from across the Americas and Carribean basin.

Stay tuned for the next in our series of “Beyond the High Line” series, happening this fall on the High Line.
