    New York City Council 33, which includes the neighborhoods of Greenpoint, Williamsburg, Downtown Brooklyn, Brooklyn Heights, and Park Slope, has experienced transformational change over the past 40 years. These diverse and vibrant neighborhoods—residential, commercial, and industrial in nature—are also home to three East River bridges, four colleges and universities, and six historic districts.

    Our panel includes the individuals who have represented this district since 1975:

    Ken Fisher, Esq., Cozen O’Conner
    Hon. Abraham Gerges, Kings County Supreme Court
    Stephen Levin, current Council Member
    David Yassky, Chair of the Taxi & Limousine Commission

    Join us for an insider’s discussion, moderated by Professor David Reiss, on the history of the district and the public policy conflicts our panelists have faced in representing it. They will focus on how government responds to dynamic change, the limits of governmental action, and initiatives that have shaped the district to be at the heart of the new Brooklyn.
