To help achieve these goals, NYC Park Advocates conducts research, monitoring public policy, public agency performance, environmental issues, government legislation and the actions of individuals that affect NYC and its environs. We direct our findings to the attention of elected officials, media, concerned constituencies and the general public.
Over the past forty years, public funding for New York City public parks has been drastically reduced, resulting in an alarming decrease of critical services, including basic maintenance and programming. Although this affects the quality of life for all New Yorkers, those most impacted are the residents in the city's underserved communities, the working class, the poor and the disenfranchised. By undertaking these efforts and raising public awareness, NYC Park Advocates will restore proper public funding to all NYC parks and ensure that park services are delivered based, not on a community's ability to raise private funds, but on the firm principle that all neighborhoods and all people deserve equitable treatment.
