Held in conjunction with the exhibition 1978: the NYC Parks/New York Times Photo Project, current and former Parks Commissioners will discuss the challenges and successes of New York City’s parks and the initiative and effort that has gone into their revival over the past 40 years.

During the NYC newspaper strike from August to November 1978, the Parks Department hired eight New York Times photographers to document the City's parks. This exhibit features highlights of their 3,000 images.
