Presented by The NYU Wagner Rudin Center for Transportation

Curated by Anthony Shorris

When NYU was established at Washington Square, New York was the new world. Now it is a mature city, and Abu Dhabi, a youthful, growing metropolis, is the new world. However different, the cities face common challenges that this series will explore. Underscoring the twin focus, the speakers will deliver talks in both New York and Abu Dhabi and address the circumstances in each city.

Anthony Shorris is a Professor of Practice at the Robert F. Wagner School of Public Service and serves as Director of the Rudin Center for Transportation Policy and Management. Before joining NYU, he was Executive Director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
