IN-PERSON | Cornell Tech Campus | Roosevelt Island, NY

How tech can help New York build for 2050 (not 1950)

New York  — the city known for constant urban reinvention — is once again leading the reinvention of the American city.

The United States is carrying out an historic reinvestment in its infrastructure and cities. New York is showing America that future.

CityAge is proud to return to Manhattan on Dec. 14th to highlight how America's global capital is:

  • Revitalizing central business districts with new urban design
  • Re-inventing mobility
  • Using design, technology and renewable energy systems to decarbonize
  • Creating both digital and physical connectivity
  • Weaving resiliency into new and rebuilt infrastructure

We hope you can join us Dec. 14th for our in-person CityAge event: The New Infrastructure. You will meet the people forging the partnerships and investments that can inform the future of other American towns and cities, and set an example for the world.
