Open and Green Spaces


WE ACT supports the creation and use of unenclosed areas connecting the built and natural environments and providing opportunities for recreation, reflection and interactions with nature. Current or past work includes: 

West Harlem Piers Park

In 1998, WE ACT partnered with NYC Community Board 9 to organize the Harlem-on-the-River Project. Our goal was to engage community leaders and residents in developing a community-driven plan that would both increase access to the Harlem waterfront and raise interest in one of Northern Manhattan’s neglected neighborhoods.
