The Municipal Art Society of New York

Presented by the Times Square Alliance and the Municipal Arts Society
May 5, 2015 | 6:30pm-8:00pm
Duffy Square Red Steps

People were invited to sit on the stoop of the Duffy Square Steps, unfold a red chair on Snohetta’s pedestrian plazas, put on wireless headphones provided by the Times Square Alliance, and hear urbanists and city-lovers of all stripes read and reflect on their favorite excerpts from Jacob’s classic text in real time – all while watching the “intricate ballet,” ‘the seeming disorder” and the “marvelous order” of a great public space.
