596 has facilitated the neighbor-led creation of 32 new spaces on City owned land in NYC between 2011 and 2015. We also protect legacy gardens from tax lien foreclosure, expand land in community stewardship and bring transparency over the disposition of public assets. 596 Acres makes information about public land legible and accessible online & on fences, and helps neighbors connect to transform the lots in their lives.
