This is a virtual program, presented on Zoom. A Zoom link will be sent to SCHS members before the presentation. 

Join us for a virtual presentation by Carlos Balsas, discussing his recent publication, “Industrial Policy in Eastern New York.” Balsas will discuss urban industrial transformations occurring in NYS, and if recent major projects on former industrial sites in Upstate New York succeeded at creating long-term, well-paying and high-skilled jobs for their host cities and towns. It is argued that although it is difficult to convert former 20th century industrial sites to 21st century requirements, state and localities should not abandon existing industrially zoned land in favor of out-of-town greenfield industrial developments.
