Along with the promise of jobs and economic diversification come concerns about infrastructure, inequality, and the impact of the project on housing affordability. Architect and professor Vishaan Chakrabarti and Dr. Saskia Sassen, noted sociologist and globalization theorist, discuss this critical development, how cities like New York can continue to grow and remain vibrant and affordable in an economy increasingly dominated by large corporations, and what can be learned from the experiences of cities like San Francisco and Seattle.
