First-year students from the MS Design and Urban Ecologies Program designed a methodology to identify vacant, underutilized, and available properties in Sunset Park and its surrounding areas early this month. Using this methodology and in collaboration with our community partners, they organized a collective neighborhood survey and mapping on September 14. Over 40 persons met at the Sunset Park Recreation Center to walk block-by-block across the neighborhood. Stay tuned for the results of this collective effort.
The collective neighborhood survey and mapping is part of the United for Housing project. For more information about this project, click here.
