A Collaboration of New Rochelle Community Advocates + Harvard Graduate Students 

Last fall, a dozen students at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design worked in tandem with a dozen residents of New Rochelle to consider challenges facing the historic Black neighborhoods affected by the dramatic growth of downtown development.

The collaborative results are eight specific projects of urban design, landscape architecture, community development and policy ideas focused on community health, cultural exchange and memory, food access, affordable housing, public mobility and safety, and re-building a local economy.


We are grateful to Stephanie Bartee, Walter Brown, Lisa Burton, Kwamain Dixon, Norell Edwards Angela Farrish, Leslie Gaskin, Blaze Jones-Yellin, Linda Tarrant-Reid, Durette Tyler, Aaron Williams, and Michael Yellin.
