TEDxNewYork begins

By Kate Torgovnick May

It's a drizzly morning in New York City, with raindrops falling on the dome of Weylin B. Seymour's, aka the Williamsburgh Savings Bank. But underneath, in the beautifully ornate grand hall, the first session of TEDxNewYork is underway. The first talk gave valuable advice to storytellers in the age of infographics and data visualizations; the second looked at how gentrification is far from inevitable.

The audience has settled in to enjoy this event, sandwiched between Halloween and the day of the New York Marathon. Stay tuned to read more about the talks from today's event.
