This presentation focuses on a worldwide behavioral shift as billions of people quickly grapple with the need to move through places that have largely been designed around cars. Samuel I. Schwartz, PE, the founder of Sam Schwartz Consulting, LLC, suggests looking to both the near- and long-term futures: “we should be relying on science on assessing risk probabilities on various ways to travel”. This session is built around publicly available original research, spearheaded by Michael A. Shamma, PE and Lian Farhi, that examines over 100 global transportation responses.
Michael A Shamma, P.E., President of Sam Schwartz Consulting

Sunnyside Yard is the only contiguous, centrally located, transitaccessible site of its size remaining in New York City, making it a precious resource in the City’s long-term plan to provide affordable housing for New Yorkers. At the same time, as one of the busiest passenger rail facilities in North America, the Yard is a critical piece of national rail infrastructure, meaning any deck over Sunnyside Yard must support the city above, while seamlessly integrating with the daily rail operations below. Lead by the Practice of Architecture and Urbanism for Amtrak, the City of New York and the New York City Economic Development Corporation, The Sunnyside Yard Master Plan broughttogether the disciplinary expertise of 14 different consultant firms, the technical exigencies required by Amtrak and MTA’s engineers and critical input from a robust community engagement process to create a long term planning framework to guide development and infrastructure investment in the Yard for decades to come.
