DYK: 40% of New Yorkers who responded to our OneNYC survey cited “Housing” as the biggest challenge facing NYC. That’s why we’re creating or preserving 300K affordable units by 2026 while increasing overall housing supply. #OneNYC #greennewdeal
The official start of summer is just a week away! Learn the symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke and what precautions you should take if someone you know is suffering from these conditions!

DYK: 81.7% of New Yorkers live within walking distance of a park, an increase of over 180,000 residents since 2015. NYC will raise this to 85% by 2030 by increasing access and targeting open-space acquisition and development in under-resourced and growing neighborhoods.  #OneNYC #GreenNewDeal
DYK: NYC has installed over 10 MILLION square feet of energy-saving, neighborhood-cooling rooftops! We’re creating green jobs while mitigating the effects of summer heat! #OneNYC #GreenNewDeal
#OneNYC, New York City’s #greennewdeal, is the best strategy to make our city strong + fair since Cyrus tried to call a citywide truce.
