GreenSpaceNYC,
Social Network Providing Network for New Yorkers to Map Vacant
Buildings and Lots, Submitted to NYC BigApps Contest During Social Media
Week


GreenSpaceNYC, a new social network that empowers New Yorkers to create temporary and permanent spaces from unused blighted and vacated buildings and lots in New York City, is a contender for the NYC Big Apps Competition. .

This contest rewards the developers of the best applications for delivering information from the City of New York's NYC.gov Data Mine. GreenSpaceNYC used the Buildings Information System and Property Address Directory to collect data that identifies vacant properties and buildings in New York City.

GreenspaceNYC collects and organizes maps and data that allow organizations and individuals to search, view, and assess the vacant buildings and lots in our city. With this information at their fingertips, GreenSpaceNYC users are encouraged to connect with one another to share ideas about building sustainable communities that improve New York City.

GreenSpaceNYC was designed by graphic designer Laura Scherling and web developer Ray Manalo. Manalo is a web developer with Housing Works, Inc. and Scherling is a designer in The New School's Communications and External Affairs
Office.


“We hope GreenSpaceNYC will become a hub for New Yorkers who care about sustainable development,” Scherling said.
