Story created by Green Map NYC on June 10, 2019

The Green Map organization is based on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, which is getting hotter and more crowded all the time.

Our solution?

Green Map NYC has created a new map that saves energy while increasing comfort and expanding community connections:

Refresh LES!

Available just in time for the hot season for Summer, 2019, this folding map can be downloaded here as a PDF (with links!).

Starting July 10, pick up copies at these locations in the community.

  • GOLES Direct - 156 Ave B
  • MORUS - 156 Ave C
  • Seward Park Library - 192 East Broadway
  • More locations to come, or call Green Map at 212.674.1631 or send an email to apple @ greenmap.org
  • .

    Our thanks to LES Ready, our community's long-term recovery and resiliency coalition, and to Global Giving donors for their support of this project.

    We'd also like to thanks LES Ready members, Elissa Sampson and Elissa Jiji for their input, LUNGS NYC for providing the community garden map, Aaron Reiss for design support, and Wendy Brawer, project lead.
