Sharon Zukin: On Comfort
Saturday, October 15, 2011, 4:30–5:30 pm
Sharon Zukin, professor of sociology at Brooklyn College and City University Graduate Center, takes us on a walk through the physical, social, and cultural meanings of "comfort" in New York's public spaces—from places for standing, sitting, and sleeping, to places for being with the same or different people—asking along the way whether cities must have places that offend our "comfort level."
