Building Capital Series How does the combination of financial, cultural, and community capital enrich quality of life? The "Building Capital: Value of Place" series showcases places that play a vital role fostering community connections and local culture, telling the story of how the space was designed, built, and financed, how it’s being used, and how they contribute to the financial security and well-being of residents long displaced by systemic racism. Building Capital is the latest installment of OHNY’s Urban Systems program and is presented in partnership with Bloomberg Connects.
