Book Talk with the Author Vishaan Chakrabarti (CM|1.5)
April 23, 2014 @ 8:00 am - 10:15 am
Join ULI NNJ members and colleagues on Wednesday, April 23, 2014 at St. Peter’s University in Jersey City, as we engage in a profound dialogue and book signing with the author of “A Country of Cities: A Manifesto for Urban America,” Vishaan Chakrabarti. Mr. Chakrabarti is the director of Columbia University’s Center for Urban Real Estate (CURE) and a partner at SHoP Architects,
A Country of Cities: A Manifesto for Urban America has been quoted in the Huffington Post in their list of “13 books you should investigate if you want to know more about why cities and metros matter, about the magnitude of the challenges that they are taking on, and about how they can do better. They write, “Chakrabarti’s beautifully designed manifesto is totally winning, with excellent infographics, and lively pop culture references. This the kind of book that reconnects urbanists with the passion that brought them into this field in the first place — and helps others understand why urbanists care so much about what they do.”
