Streetsblog TV Live on Thursday: ELACC in the Morning, JSK in the Afternoon

We’re happy to announce a pair of Streetsblog TV broadcasts for this Thursday.

Click on the image to go to the LiveStream Event Page.

Bright and early at 8 a.m., Kris Fortin will be broadcasting live from the East Los Angeles Community Corporation’s panel discussion on street vending in Los Angeles. Los Angeles is one of the 10 largest cities in the U.S. without a form of legalized street vending. Street vending has been a part of Los Angeles’ fabric, culture and economy for decades. If you can’t make the discussion, but care about the issue, be sure to visit our LiveStream of the event. As with all our broadcasts, the video will be available on Streetsblog TV as soon as the broadcast is completed.

At noon, Fortin will be at Occidental College for a lecture by Oxy alumna and NYCDOT Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan. During her tenure at NYCDOT, the department has gone from one of the most car-centric ones in the nation to one of the most people-centric ones. From turning Times Square into a public plaza to creating bus only lanes in the Bronx, for the past five and a half years her department has been a national model for sustainability.

The lecture, which is open to the public but with very limited seating, is one of two public appearances Sadik-Khan will be making that day. The other is at UCLA’s Complete Streets Conference later in the day. The title of her speech at Occidental College is “Transportation Revolution? Lessons from New York City.” Visit the Streetsblog TV event page for the lecture by clicking here.

    Considering Los Angeles is the second-largest city in the United States,
    and New York has legal street vending, Los Angeles must be *the*
    largest city in the US without legal street vending.
