The BROADWAY: 1000 Steps Baton – 23rd Street to Canal Street: The Downtown Area
Max Joel, the Director of Energy Connections at alternative energy organization, Solar One, will address their bold environmental initiatives, followed by naturalist and educator, Gabriel Willow, who will turn our attention to the natural habitat of the neighborhood beginning with Madison Square Park.
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.
