Public Realm Bill of Rights

The Public Realm Bill of Rights for New York City lays out the principles the City should follow in creating and maintaining quality open space for all. Our video features New Yorkers in parks and open spaces in all five boroughs speaking up for the public realm. 

If you agree that all New Yorkers should enjoy these rights, sign on to the Bill of Rights and show your support.

The vast majority of the bill is based on the input we've gathered from parks and open space advocates across the city over the past year and a half of outreach through our How's Your Park? and NY4P: Boro x Boro meeting series.
