The BROADWAY: 1000 Steps Baton – 112th Street to 59th Street: Central Park to Columbus Circle
As we walk down from 112th St., Angelica Pasqualini of Columbia University’s Center for Climate Systems research, will speak about the principle climate research underway in NYC and the myriad green innovations in the built environment that line Broadway.
BROADWAY: 1000 Steps is a project by Mary Miss to turn the oldest avenue of NYC
into a “green corridor” where insights into our surroundings – from streets and buildings, to transportation and waste, to energy and the climate – can be made apparent and accessible at ground level. This project, to be inaugurated next spring 2013, will be implemented at up to twenty “hubs” dispersed along its length, from the Bronx to the Battery. Each hub will serve as a site for installations that reveal the urban infrastructure, decode the environment and suggest what the future city might be. This project is intended as a catalyst for interventions and projects by other artists, environmental designers, and citizens along Broadway, at additional sites in NYC and cities across the country.
