Prompt: Create a design solution to solve an issue identified through the research of a neighborhood in New York.

In my design solution for Sunset Park, I aim to create a product that encourages interactions to reduce the social gap between the two major communities in the neighborhood. This product targets the young population from both ethnicities ranging from ages 10 to 18 years old as they are more susceptible to changes, and therefore create a long term change to the community. In addition, the design should inform the users about sustainability as Sunset Park is one of the most vulnerable neighborhoods to climate change.
