Open House New York invites you to a conversation with OHNY executive director Gregory Wessner and John Choe, executive director of the Greater Flushing Chamber of Commerce.

Choe works every day to expand opportunities and empower those who live and work in the most diverse community in the United States, and in one of the boroughs hardest hit by COVID-19. He previously served as Founding Director of the One Flushing Community Economic Development Center, Policy Director for the City Comptroller, and Chief of Staff and Legislative Director at the New York City Council for District 20. This conversation will explore how small business support and economic development are critical for the city’s recovery.

Conversations on the City 2020 is a series of conversations about the enduring value of cities at a moment of uncertainty about the future of urban life. Each conversation is organized around a broad theme, but all will explore the abiding joy of living an urban life–why cities continue to thrive, what propels them forward, and why our need for the human connection that cities make possible will always prevail over whatever challenges that may arise.
