About Red Hook Green Map

About

The Red Hook Green Map was created by Hook Productions, a City Parks Foundation educational program that operates out of the Red Hook Recreation Center. The program provides audio-video production and technology training for middle and high school aged youth. For the summer of 2009 City Parks Foundation’s Catalyst project added a new “green mapping” component to Hook Productions’ usual program of multimedia, media literacy, and new media training. There were 24 students in the Summer 2009 Hook Productions program that ranged in age from 14 to 20 years old and the majority of the students were from Brooklyn. The Hook Productions teens learned about video production, mapping, the local environment, and sustainability issues. They created this participatory map as a resource for the Red Hook community. The map includes site icons, site photographs, video interviews with community members, and site descriptions written by the teens. This map is meant to foster community dialogue. Please explore the Red Hook Green Map! Add your favorite places, your thoughts or memories about a place, and your wishes hopes and dreams for the future of a Red Hook space. You can make a comment about a site or suggest a site that should be added to the map. The Hook Productions slogan for the map is, “Oh Snap, add a site to the Green Map!”

It's here as a toxic air BQE Brooklyn Queens Expressway Wendy at Green Map

It's here as a toxic air pollution, bad health and noise pollution site, not as a beneficial site. Yes, something to respond to, and think before we drive.

The BQE is a nightmare. Why BQE Brooklyn Queens Expressway Charles Walker (not verified)

The BQE is a nightmare. Why is this on a green map? Or is it on the map as something to avoid? Sorry if so...
