It’s hard to believe this was ever a place for cars. The most interesting thing about the #TimesSquare transformation in New York by ⁦@MikeBloomberg⁩ ⁦@JSadikKhan⁩ & ⁦@citiesforpeople⁩ — it wasn’t sold as “place-making.” It was about TRAFFIC WORKING BETTER.
There’s lots of reasons why New York’s Bryant Park is one of the best people-places anywhere. But my favourite reasons are the many diverse well-defined “sub-spaces” as you walk around it; the massive number of moveable chairs; & the big beautiful shade trees on a hot, sunny day.
What is successful urbanism? If there’s a lot of people in a “public space” (it’s not actually public), is it a good place? New York’s new Hudson Yards development has been criticized by many urbanists, & defended by some, so I needed to see it myself. It raised many questions:

"the UCC and its sub-groups have disseminated ISIS propaganda online, including “kill lists,” which listed the names of individuals – for example, soldiers in the United States Armed Forces and members of the State Department –
whom the group instructed their followers to kill.  For example, on or about April 21, 2016, the UCC posted online the names, addresses, and other personal identifying information of approximately 3,602 individuals in the New York City area and included a message that stated:
“List of most important citizens of #NewYork and #Brooklyn and some other cities . . . We Want them #Dead.”

📅January 25, 1972:

👩🏿Shirley Chisholm (1924-2005), who died at the age of 80, was the first African American elected to Congress. She served for seven terms (1969-1983).

🇺🇸Her historic announcement to run for president as she was the first African American woman to do so.
𝗨𝗡𝗕𝗢𝗨𝗚𝗛𝗧 & 𝗨𝗡𝗕𝗢𝗦𝗦𝗘𝗗

No one thought Shirley Chisholm would last more than a couple of months, but at the 1972 Democratic Nat'l Convention, she received 152 delegate votes—10% of the total—amazing considering her skimpy campaign war chest.

𝗨𝗡𝗕𝗢𝗨𝗚𝗛𝗧 & 𝗨𝗡𝗕𝗢𝗦𝗦𝗘𝗗 (CONT'D)

Next year, the city of New York will erect not one—but two—statues in her honor near where she grew up in #Brooklyn #NewYork.

1. This is a love letter 💌 to all of those who are currently in the service industry.

Last night, a Wall Street guy was drinking at an NYC bar where my husband @BobbyCrace was working. The Wall Street guy didn’t tip him.
2. A man sitting next to The Wall Street bro noticed said to him “You forgot to tip the bartender.” To which the Wall Street bro responded:

“No I didn’t. It will be better for him if I don’t.”
3. An indication that if Bobby were tipped, it would be looked at as a “handout“ and he wouldn’t be motivated to “work on his life”.
