Agnotti delivered a lecture titled, "New York City's Bill de Blasio: Progressive Housing and Planning Alternatives to Bloomberg's Luxury City?" Angotti spoke about his expectations for the de Blasio administration, particularly related to affordable housing. CRP Professor Emeritus William Goldsmith introduced Angotti, calling him a man "with many careers packed into one." Angotti, who has taught at both Cornell in Rome and AAP NYC, is engaged in community and environmental justice issues in New York City and currently serves as coeditor of Progressive Planning magazine.
