About NAG [Neighbors Allied for Good Growth]
Neighbors Allied for Good Growth developed out of our neighborhood’s desire to recapture its waterfront, reduce local environmental hazards, and advocate for public policies promoting healthy mixed-use communities. We advocate with and for the people who live and work in the North Brooklyn neighborhoods of Greenpoint and Williamsburg.
Our approach to these issues is guided by the principle that our entire community is entitled to participate in decision-making and negotiation processes affecting our neighborhood, leadership of local mobilization efforts, and the design of a future vision for our community.
Current projects include our ToxiCity Map, advocating for the completion of Bushwick Inlet Park, organizing the community on the State Superfund Process for the NuHart site in Greenpoint, lead in garden soil outreach and education, restaurant sustainability, and transportation improvement campaigns.
