Trust for Public Lands Ranks NYC as 10th Best City for Parks
Full disclosure, NYC tied with Boston for 10th place. Hooray for NYC parks! The Trust for Public Land determined NYC’s ParkScore rating by comparing access (99 points), acreage (52 points), investment (91 points), amenities (48 points) and equity (74 points). 99% of New York residents live within a 10-minute walk of a park! Here’s more from TPL via Gothamist:
Comparing amount of park space between neighborhoods by race/ethnicity
Residents in neighborhoods of color* have access to the same park space per person as the city’s average neighborhood and 32% less than those in white neighborhoods. Additionally, we compared park space in the city’s average neighborhood with others by specific race and ethnicity
