Preserving New York And Accelerating Capetown

New York City and Cape Town South Africa are two cities with two very different histories. This week on the show we're talking about the history of New York and the future of Cape Town.

Guy Lundy is the CEO of Accelerate Cape Town, a business-led initiative that brings together all the stakeholders in the Cape region to develop a long-term vision for sustainable economic growth in South Africa. He'll tell us about the unique challenges Cape Town faces and the solutions they can share with so-called "second cities" all over the world.

And, while all cities are looking to build toward the future, New York City has a legal mechanism designed to protect its past. Anthony C. Wood is the author of the book "Preserving New York: Winning the Right to Protect A City's Landmarks" which traces the history of New York's struggle to protect its natural and architectural heritage.

Smart City is a syndicated, weekly hour-long public radio talk show that takes an in-depth look at urban life: the people, places, ideas and trends that affect us all. Host Carol Coletta, president and CEO of CEOs for Cities, talks with national and international public policy experts, economists, business leaders, artists, developers, planners and others on the pulse of city life for a penetrating discussion on urban issues.

Smart City is broadcast at 6 a.m. Saturday and Sundays on WKNO-FM, but it is also webcast and podcast so you can listen to it anytime you like. For the webcast, times for the broadcast in other cities and to sign up for the podcast, visit our website.
