Brownfield sites | NYU Furman Center

Brownfield sites are concentrated in certain areas of the city. Over 66 percent can be found in just ten community districts, with Greenpoint/ Willliamsburg accounting for 24.6 percent of the total sites in the city. The study suggested a link between the remediation of brownfield sites and gentrification. However, it stopped short of declaring a causal relationship. According to the study, five out the 10 areas with the most brownfield remediation sites (Williamsburg/Greenpoint, Bedford Stuyvesant, Mott Haven, Astoria and Morrisania) are on the list of NYU Furman’s gentrifying neighborhoods.  Read the report here.
