Urban Reviewer (http://www.urbanreviewer.org) is New York City’s first detailed, annotated digital map of master plans from the Urban Renewal era. The tool, created by 596 Acres, details over 150 plans for top-down neighborhood redevelopment, which have affected more than 15,000 lots throughout the five boroughs since 1949. 596 Acres will be showcasing the tool as well as premiering an interactive physical map within Spontaneous Interventions’ summer residency on Governors Island (http://www.spontaneousinterventions.org/) from THURSDAY, JULY 24TH THROUGH SUNDAY, AUGUST 17TH. This premiering event is on July 24th and is free and open to the public. It will be at Building 403 in Colonel’s Row (adjacent to the Parade Ground) on Governor’s Island. Come say hi!

Spontaneous Interventions: design actions for the common good was first presented as the exhibition of the U.S. Pavilion at the 13th International Venice Architecture Biennale in Fall 2012. It documents the nascent movement of designers acting on their own initiative to solve problematic urban situations, creating new opportunities and amenities for the public. 596 Acres is excited to participate once again!For the ferry schedule to and from the island visit http://www.govisland.com/html/visit/directions.shtml
