New York City: An Urban Laboratory
Cities are humanity’s greatest invention. More than half of the world’s population—over three billion people—live in them and an estimated 60 million more are moving to them every year. In a world that is driven by creativity and ideas, cities drive innovation. They provide the basic platform for human and economic growth, now and in the future. As the densest city in the United States and the world’s greatest urban laboratory, New York City offers the perfect environment in which to work with leading experts—inside and outside the classroom—in design, entrepreneurship, government, transit, and sustainability to learn more about and to tackle the challenges facing our future cities.
