We made these online advocacy tools:

Living Lots NYC

Living Lots NYC is a clearinghouse of information that New Yorkers can use to find, unlock and protect our shared resources. 596 Acres started with vacant lots and remains committed to helping fill these holes.

NYCommons

NYCommons helps New Yorkers impact decisions about public land and buildings in their neighborhoods. It is a collaboration between Common Cause/NY, the Community Development Project at the Urban Justice Center, and 596 Acres.

One Dollar Lots

One Dollar Lots documents each time NYC sells or plans to sell a vacant lot to developers for $1. This tool can help New Yorkers better shape how dollar sales of public land impact our neighborhoods and city.

Urban Reviewer

Urban Reviewer catalogs over 150 urban renewal plans that NYC adopted to get federal funding for acquiring land, relocating the people living there, demolishing the structures and making way for new public and private development.
