The New York Civil Liberties Union today officially announced the upcoming Museum of Broken Windows, a free pop-up exhibition in New York City from April 28 to May 6 that explores the dreams left unfulfilled by New York City’s reliance on policing to meet too many of our needs. Through creative expression, artists and visitors will imagine what we could otherwise do with the $29M per day our city spends on the NYPD in order to create a truly safe, connected, and thriving city. "29 Million Dreams” will launch at a time when the New York City Council and Mayor are negotiating the city’s budget, including the billions spent each year on the NYPD, by far the largest police force in the country.
