Parks are for people. Not cars or parking perks.
This troubled narrow park serves 7 blocks of low-income neighborhoods. The Broome Str Communications Building below serves all 5 boroughs. Why is it, and its parking, here?
NYC ‘Environmental Justice Area‘ map. NYC’s environmental justice law defines “Environmental Justice Areas” as low-income or minority communities located in the City of New York, based on US Census data.
Yet three of four of its Parkhouses are burdened with carrying:
All 5 boroughs at Broome Street.
All of Manhattan at Stanton Street.
All of Manhattan at Hester Street
Only the robust, active, community hub of 30 Delancey Street parkhouse – the BRC Senior Nutrition Center is used by and for the people of these neighborhoods.
