Amanda Burden might be the most influential figure in New York City government, after Mayor Michael Bloomberg. As New York City Planning Commissioner for the past decade, she has spearheaded efforts to re-zone a huge swath of New York and reclaim its waterfront.

Diane talks with Amanda Burden about her role as the city’s planning commissioner and lessons learned from Hurricane Sandy.
