Sharing Ideas for the New City

A new series of posters connected to a conference on "the New City" presents ideas for improving our urban areas. Urban Omnibus presents some of the posters.

"From the beginning, Urban Omnibus has been a showcase of good ideas for the future of cities, conceived in the public interest and tried and tested in the five boroughs of New York. Our ongoing commitment to that is part of why we jumped at the chance to participate in and help organize the Festival of Ideas for the New City, coming up soon from May 4-8. The Festival aims to harness the power of the creative community to imagine the future city and explore ideas that will shape it. It's a perfect fit. So, to coincide with the event, we have decided to surface some of the ideas that have appeared on Urban Omnibus over the past two years and broadcast them around the city."

Ideas presented on the posters include harnessing the passive energy of daily life, and utilizing fire hydrants to anchor small temporary parks.
