NY4P Newsletter 2, October 2019


New from NY4P:

Three new Open Space Index reports

NY4P released three new in-depth reports about the Bay Street Corridor in Staten Island, Bushwick in Brooklyn, and Long Island City in Queens. We measured their open spaces, compared their qualities to citywide goals, and issued recommendations based on what locals told us about their parks and open spaces. Download them today!

Open Space Dialogues 6For a deeper discussion, join our next Open Space Dialogue: Neighborhoods Facing Change

The next Open Space Dialogue panel discussion will focus on what we can learn about citywide parks and open space policies from these three neighborhoods, each at a different phase in the rezoning process. Save the date for Monday, November 25 - registration will open soon!
