TEDxNewYork 2014

November 1, 2014
8:00am - 7:00pm
Brooklyn, NY



The mission of this TEDxNewYork edition was to stir up interesting conversations, new ideas and to incite action:
“In a city like New York, it’s easy to take the same route every day, eat the same turkey sandwich, talk to the same ten people. Every once in a while we have to stick our heads out of our myopic little holes and ask ourselves: Wait, why do we do this again?”
