Jane Jacobs called it a ballet. It was a soaring, stimulating, and safe place. Neighborhoods had density. Buildings had character. Streets had eyes. By the 1960’s, urban planning had changed. Led by Robert Moses, the ballet of the City would come to a grinding halt. It was replaced by the superblock, the highrise and the highway. The wrecking ball sealed the fate of neighborhoods. What implications did this have on life in New York and how do those fateful decisions still impact us today?

with Monica Weiss and Vince Brancato, Co-Chairs of the Ethical NYC Environmental Stewardship Committee.

Spotlighting the cities, states, businesses and citizens taking action, Paris to Pittsburgh explores the very real social and economic impacts of climate change-fueled disasters, from America’s heartland to the nation’s coastlines. The film features voices from local leaders as well as everyday Americans presenting the stories behind climate-related recovery and resiliency, as well as tireless innovative efforts to reduce carbon emissions, including boomtowns formerly reliant on coal such as Pittsburgh. Other locations featured in the film include Puerto Rico, California, Iowa, Florida and New Jersey. Paris to Pittsburgh is a production of RadicalMedia and Bloomberg Philanthropies, distributed by National Geographic.
