SOUND MANAGEMENT IN NIGHTLIFE DISTRICTS

Sound complaints rise with housing development in or near nightlife venues and districts.

In New York City the number grew from 86,365 calls in 2010 to 179,394 in 2015, with clubs and bars accounting for 93,412 complaints in 2015.

Managing the source and transference of sound requires robust partnerships between planners, developers and nightltime businesses.

This webinar will showcase two of the most progressive nightlife cities on their approach to sound management: Austin and San Francisco. Read More

URBAN NIGHTLIFE: RACE, CULTURE AND PUBLIC SPACE

In Urban Nightlife, sociologist Dr. Reuben A. Buford May undertakes a nuanced examination of urban nightlife, drawing on ethnographic data gathered to explore the question of how nighttime revelers negotiate urban public spaces as they go about meeting, socializing and entertaining themselves. 

Dr. May’s work reveals the ongoing social conflict on the streets, in bars and nightclubs, and in the various public spaces. To explore this conflict, Dr. May develops the concept of “integrated segregation” — the idea that diverse groups are physically close to one another yet rarely have meaningful interactions — rather, they are socially bound to those of similar race, class and cultural backgrounds.

URBAN MOBILITY: TNC'S, TAXIS, PEDESTRIANS, PARKING

Providing accessible and safe transportation options can enhance the overall experience of the visitor, accommodate employees who work night shifts, reduce impaired driving and expedite the process of clearing the district at closing time.

While Transportation Network Companies (TNC's) and e-hail services such as Uber, Lyft and CURB are filling a much needed service in the nighttime economy, they can also generate traffic congestion and increased risk to pedestrians.

This webinar features a case study of Pittsburgh's comprehensive plan to establish a "transport hub" and how TNC's can work with police to reduce traffic congestion and improve pedestrian safety. Read More
