In this series of conversations, we invite a distinguished group of historians, journalists, census experts, city planners, and artists featured in our exhibition Who We Are: Visualizing NYC by the Numbers (through Summer 2020) to discuss the significance and meaning of the 2020 Census for New York City’s future and consider the deeper implications (political, cultural, social) of determining “who we are” as New Yorkers. 

This series is presented in conjunction with the Museum's exhibition Who We Are: Visualizing NYC by the Numbers as well as our Future City Lab, the interactive third gallery in the New York at Its Core exhibition.
