Crossroads Conversations is a public program series hosted in iconic public spaces that invites passersby from all walks of life and political convictions to engage in thoughtful dialogue on some of the most pressing issues of our time. Participants are invited to join a fellow passerby in 10-minute conversations facilitated by transit journalist John Surico. On April 18, join Van Alen Institute at Queensboro Plaza, a site that highlights the importance of LIC as a hub for all NYC, but where congestion has many worried about the future of its infrastructure as the area grows.
All Crossroads Conversations events are free and open to the public. Advance registration is not required.
John Surico covers city life for The New York Times and its transit for VICE. He also teaches undergraduate journalism at NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute, and is a research fellow for Center for an Urban Future, a NYC-based policy organization.
