While chain stores proliferate along neighborhood main streets, a simultaneous phenomenon of storefront vacancies threatens the character of NYC’s famously vibrant street life as landlords push out small business owners, holding out for higher-paying tenants.

NYxNY members will enjoy two complimentary tickets each (a $5 value per ticket).
