The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey serves as a powerful and unique engine for regional mobility and economic growth. The agency operates the largest airport network in the world, oversees the largest seaport on the East Coast and manages several other essential assets, including the PATH system and the George Washington Bridge.
As recent circumstances have thrust the Port Authority into a period of evaluation and transition, how an entity that historically shaped the regional landscape positions itself to play a role in the consequential undertakings of the present and future deserves exploration.
Joining New Start New Jersey for this discussion is the foremost expert on the Port Authority, Jameson Doig, Visiting Research Professor at Dartmouth College and Professor Emeritus of Politics and Public Affairs at Princeton University.
