NYC Public Design Commission Names Award Winners

ARCHITECT Magazine recently named the Greenbelt Conservancy as a co-recipient of the Parks Maintenance, Operations, and Art Conservation Staff, in the New York City Public Design Commission’s Special Awards category.

The publication summarized the award, stating: “Throughout the pandemic, New Yorkers have recognized the importance of neighborhood parks for providing access to recreation, safe gathering spaces, and enhancing health and well-being. This award celebrates the citywide staff whose dedication and efforts have ensured that these spaces are clean and safe for the public to enjoy every day.”

Congratulations to all the award winners, and thanks to ARCHITECT magazine for recognition of the incredible effort and diligence required of NYC Parks and partner organizations during the pandemic, a time when public spaces throughout the city experienced record usership demands along with tremendous resource pressures. Thank you to all who continue help make the city’s parks run, for everyone!
