We Need Nature For Our Health.
Other than parks, green space is recognized as an important neighborhood amenity. It is where we play, gather for picnics, relax, and meet our neighbors. Access to green space has been viewed and well-documented as key to enhancing community health and well-being. All people, no matter their socioeconomic or racial background, should be guaranteed access to green space in order to receive these equal health benefits, especially in highly dense urban environments like Northern Manhattan.
