New York Fed to Host “The Future of New York City: Charting an Equitable Recovery for All” Hybrid Event

March 07, 2022

NEW YORK—On Thursday, March 31, 2022, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York will host “The Future of New York City: Charting an Equitable Recovery for All,” a day-long hybrid event featuring some of the city’s—and the nation’s—key leaders and thinkers on topics including the future of remote work, the prospects of big cities in a post-pandemic economy, and the role of transportation infrastructure in New York City’s future.

The global pandemic was a historic blow to both New York City’s people and its economy. This event will focus on charting a path to an inclusive recovery, featuring presentations and discussions on why New York City has thrived through pandemics, depressions, wars, and recessions; the future of big cities as a place to work and live; how to foster a recovery that addresses rising urban inequality; and big ideas from community innovators.

Event speakers include:

  • New York Fed President and CEO John Williams
  • National Urban League President and CEO Marc Morial
  • Harvard University Professor of Economics Edward Glaeser
  • Stanford University Professor of Economics Nicholas Bloom
  • NYU Professor of Urban Policy and Planning Ingrid Gould Ellen
  • U.S. Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Transportation Policy Christopher Coes
  • Founder & CEO of BlocPower Donnel Baird
This hybrid event is open to the public and media. Limited in-person seating will be available by invitation only. All remarks are on the record and the event will be livestreamed with a recording to be made available afterwards. For media inquiries, please contact Ellen Simon at
