Equity in parks and green spaces has long been an issue in New York City—a problem that is further exacerbated as these precious resources have been pushed to capacity since March. While facing budget and health crisises, cities like New York have implemented methods for maintaining physical distancing, such as closing nearby adjacent streets to cars for recreational use. For our third session in the Future of Open Space series, we will discuss how design, planning, and policy can offer solutions for a more healthy, accessible, and equitable public realm, with a focus on parks and green spaces.
Susan Chin, FAIA, Hon. ASLA (Principal, DesignConnects) will be joined in conversation by Terri Carta (Executive Director, Brooklyn Greenway Initiative), Benita Hussain (Director, 10-Minute Walk, Trust for Public Land) and Michelle Kondo, PhD (Research Social Scientist, Northern Research Station, USDA Forest Service).
