Debut of latest Urban Investigation

Debut of latest _Urban Investigation_

The future of manufacturing in NYC has been in the news frequently in the past year. With the rising price of land and the mayor’s push for affordable housing throughout the city, the future of manufacturing districts is uncertain. What would happen to industrial areas if manufacturing was replaced with something else? Who would benefit? Who would lose out? Who decides?

In our latest Urban Investigation, students from Lyons Community School in East Williamsburg and teaching artist Tamara Gubernat looked into the politics of industrial areas. The students talked to City Council Member Antonio Reynoso, a developer, business owners, and community advocates. They created a short, funky video to share what they learned.

Join us for the debut of their video at UnionDocs, where students will present their work and discuss their creative process.
