Join us for this special film screening and conversation with filmmaker Kate Levy.

In 2022, Kate Levy documented the work of our Neighborhoods Now teams as they enlivened and programmed public space, provided support to small businesses, and envisioned thriving futures for their neighborhoods. Her series of short films captures a critical moment of recovery from the pandemic in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens.
