Proposing a site? You can use Green Map's new set of Recovery Icons - these include Public Health, Recuperation and Regeneration - or select from the Green Map Icons to highlight nature, culture, social justice and green living places.
This is Green Map System's neighborhood, and it has been a hotbed of mutual aid and pandemic recovery activities! With 165,000 residents here, there is great potential for a more equitable, inclusive and ecological way forward.
The Recovery Icons were developed in this neighborhood by Green Map System, which has been based in Manhattan's Lower East Side since inception.
