At the Marriott Marquis Times Square, on Thursday April 14th, we celebrated our 74th year at our Annual Luncheon.

800 industry leaders from development, banking, law, architecture, planners, government, and academia came together to network, eat lunch and to celebrate inspiring people and projects that are creating New Ideas for a New Decade; including the Arker Companies, the Hudson River Park Trust, GS Urban Investment Group, C.Virginia Fields and Artimus Construction. You can now watch all of the videos of the luncheon here.
