How can we design vibrant public spaces that support communities, not displace them? Karp Strategies is currently working with the Staten Island Economic Development Corp. (SIEDC) to ask this question in Port Richmond, a North Shore neighborhood struggling with disinvestment.

Stay tuned for more details as we hear from the Port Richmond community next week!
