Title: Red Hook Cool Streets
Category: Justice & equity
Description: Red Hook Cool Streets is a community design initiative by organizations in Red Hook, Brooklyn, NY. It aims to provide outdoor programmed space for Red Hook's most vulnerable residents- who are faced the effects of the urban heat island effect, a recent loss of 450 trees due to ongoing repairs after Hurricane Sandy, Covid-19, and increased unemployment. The initiative combines collaborative design for shading and seating, wayfinding, and social programming.
