NEW YORK — Whether suggesting factories welcome walk-in visitors, establish subsidized manufacturing or teach consumers as children to value domestic made goods, Tuesday’s “Making NYC” panelists were intent on bolstering local production.
Beyond rezoning and launching a Made in NYC label, the eight-person group discussed in detail strategies that are working. Hosted by the Design Trust for Public Space and moderated by Architectural Record’s Cliff Pearson, the panel featured Bob Bland of Manufacture NY; Miquela Craytor of NYC Economic Development Corp.; Adam Friedman of Pratt Center; Andrew Kimbal, of the Brooklyn Navy Yard; Tanya Menendez of Maker’s Row; Nina Rappaport of the Vertical Urban Factory Project at Yale School of Architecture; Yeohlee Teng, and Marianne Webber of Quick Turn Clothing.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
