New York City District-by-District

As its first project, in 2019 Rights Here is sharing the stories of people throughout New York City who are transforming the way we build. The idea is to start in Council District 51 in Staten Island, and end in District 1, in Manhattan: but that’s not precluding some jumping around!

Decisions about what we build, where, how and for whom define the city’s present and its future. Rights Here shines a spotlight on the impacts of the real estate and construction industries in New Yorkers’ daily lives and elevates local solutions for change – people and organizations working for affordable housing, workers’ rights, protection from climate change and more.
