Green Spaces

Imagine the city you really want to live in. Verdant, tree-lined streets accompany your walk to work. Weekends include picnics or playtime in a beautiful green space nearby. Your neighborhood is filled with the familiar faces of people you’ve come to know at community gatherings. All New Yorkers – whatever neighborhood they live in – want this city. 

At NYRP, we work to make that vision of New York City a reality. We are the only conservancy for under-resourced communities working city-wide in our own community gardens, public parks, and community spaces like, schools, housing projects, vacant lots, sidewalks and even highways. Use the map to see our green footprint across the city, or locate green spaces in your neighborhood.
