Green spaces in New York City are a subject that NYRP are very interested in, founded by Bette Midler this non profit organisation, New York Restoration Project has built up and achieved great things. The organisation supports projects in the 5 boroughs, transforming open spaces large or small, offering manpower and expertise in construction, environmental education, landscape maintenance, involving communities, schools and neighbourhoods.
