Neighborhoods Now

Dear friend,

for small businesses on how to apply for relief loans. They drafted legal templates for short-term leases to occupy vacant storefronts. They collaborated with senior staff at City agencies to help neighborhoods access programs like Open Streets and Open Restaurants.

As the pandemic took root in our city in March, its uneven impact on the lives of New Yorkers quickly became painfully clear. While our city’s well-resourced communities and businesses benefit from the ability to purchase expertise, the neighborhoods where many of our essential workers live do The work is far from over. Many of these firms are committed not have the same access and resources. to continuing these partnerships in service of long-term efforts to address systemic inequities and greater community In response, the Urban Design Forum and Van Alen Institute ambitions. The need for this work is profound, and we hope tapped into our collective network of architects, designers, this effort inspires the design community to come together in and engineers. In a matter of weeks, more than 65 firms continued service of New York’s neighborhoods. Ultimately, mobilized to support the recovery of four neighborhoods the long term value of this approach will be the alliances hit particularly hard by the pandemic: Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn; forged across demographic and professional boundaries. Jackson Heights, Queens; Kingsbridge, Bronx; and Washington Heights, Manhattan. To date, these firms — We are humbled by this outstanding display of teamwork, including architects, planners, engineers, graphic designers, creative problem solving, and immense generosity. We and attorneys — have contributed thousands of hours of pro thank the 200+ community experts and practitioners who bono expertise to support fellow New Yorkers. have given their time and passion, and we look forward to continuing the work. In partnership with community leaders, they piloted open-air extensions for restaurants, created neighborhood signage With gratitude, with COVID-19 health protocols, and developed proposals for relocating community events and educational programs Deborah Marton into open space. Executive Director, Van Alen Institute Our partner neighborhoods’ needs also went far deeper than design, so our working groups expanded their support beyond physical interventions.

Neighborhoods Now

Our ‘Neighborhoods Now’ program collaboration with the Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation (Restoration) enabled us to engage directly with a neighborhood historically under-served by the design community to solve concrete problems arising from the COVID-19 pandemic as well as assist ongoing efforts in community development. Our collaboration was unique as Restoration, which operates buildings providing important community programs; is also a tenant with offices that engages with the public to provide vital services; and is an advocacy and development organization for the entire neighborhood. As the nation’s first Community Development organization, Restoration has a deep legacy as an institution of respect and equality that partners with residents and businesses to improve the quality of life in Central Brooklyn through their four core centers – the Brooklyn Business Center, the Center for Healthy Neighborhoods, the Economic Solutions Center and RestorationART. Our goal was to build upon and support the incredible work that Restoration is already doing and to help facilitate their reopening while leveraging their reach to engage the broader community. Importantly, Restoration is already a model for other neighborhood groups and therefore our work together serves both as a conceptual paradigm and inspiration that could potentially be replicable in other communities. The work produced includes Plans, Protocols, Pamphlets and proposed PopUps. The Plans document concrete reopening guidelines for Restoration and their tenants. Protocols outline appropriate ways to open and use program and public spaces safely. The Pamphlets serve to educate and engage with tenants, users and the community-at-large in a way that is clear, concise and user-friendly. The Pop-Ups will encourage the meaningful reuse of public and found special spaces throughout the site and neighborhood. Our efforts address five scales: 1) Tenant; 2) Building; 3) Block; 4) Street and 5) Neighborhood. The Tenant scale provides concisely outlined protocols of reopening for office and retail, recommendations for HVAC systems, signage and proposals for the Restoration to get their own offices and services up and running quickly. The Building scale outlines general protocols for reopening buildings, proposals for the Restoration to reopen their facilities, MEP guidelines for building operations, opportunities for art and landscape to engage the community in areas such as lobbies and potential rooftops, and additional signage. The Block scale creatively

reimagines circulation around the site; reuse of public space for community and commercial benefit and expression; integration of art and temporary installations to promote safe use of open space that reflect and celebrate the neighborhood; and signage to enable safe use and encourage engagement with Restoration facilitated programs. The Street scale includes suggestions to actively reuse Fulton Street (with the Black Lives Matter street mural, which is currently pedestrian-only between Marcy and Tompkins Avenues throughout the summer) and reimagine its future as a major public space and connected corridor; protocols for businesses, restaurants and retailers to reopen safely; signage for these organizations, and design suggestions for streetscape and use for community and commerce. The Neighborhood scale included strategies for the reuse of public, street and vacant private space, an ongoing community outreach effort, and ideas for collaboration between Restoration and numerous neighborhood organizations. At each scale, we started with and maintained an ongoing and robust community process to engage with stakeholders at Restoration and the broader neighborhood. This ensured the design research and ideas were responsive to current needs and reflective of the community. The result of this effort guided all of our work and resulted in a series of pamphlets designed to engage with the public at all scales. Most importantly, the collaboration between our design teams and Restoration sets the stage for an ongoing collaboration that will facilitate the implementation of the strategies and proposals envisioned in this initial study with the hope of a fulfilling continued collaboration between all the design teams and the neighborhood at large. It is worth noting that even our longer-term ideas for the 300,000 sf Restoration Headquarters known as “Restoration Plaza” have only a three -year horizon, as Restoration is currently in the planning stages for a completely new headquarters. This was an underlying factor in all of the work, and influenced the temporary nature of many of the proposals and Pop-Ups, along with a thoughtful approach for ways in which they could be reused and recycled in the new complex once complete, or deployed throughout the neighborhood.

Consistent focus groups with as many community stakeholders as possible. 3. De-mystified city, state, and federal guidelines to make them more accessible with downloadable graphics for small business that can be uniform throughout the city.

Challenges: 2-3 challenges your team has come up against 1. Working with budget restrictions to provide the needed equipment. 2. How to encourage social distancing while encouraging use of open spaces. 3. Time! 4. Resources and funding for communities that are already stretched and stressed, including ongoing maintenance after proposals are implemented.


Implementation

Immediate Funding Needs: Top immediate needs of Restoration for continued implementation 1. HVAC: Upgrades with MERV filters for building HVAC units along with 10-15 large and 65-80 portable HEPA filters to enable Restoration space reopening. 2. Employment Resource Center: IT upgrades to enable relocation of computer classrooms to vacant space/multi-purpose rooms for de-densification. 3. Social distancing “Adopt a Square� Mural: Art mural + wayfinding to provide safe and intuitive navigation and queuing in and around the Restoration Block (potential donor naming opportunities). 4. Pop-Ups: Restoration Plaza + Sheffield Building Rooftop: Open space programming using AstroTurf, small trees/planters, scaffolding, moveable furniture/seating, small planting beds, shade canopies, etc. (potential donor naming opportunities). 5. Signage: Printing and implementation throughout the Restoration Block (interior and exterior) including COVID-19 Protocol signage, wayfinding, and central directories (potential donor naming opportunities). 6. Pamphlets: Printing and distribution of community pamphlets for office workers, community, + users with clear communication of COVID-19 protocols and navigation of implemented measures (potential donor naming opportunities).

Guidance: Small business resources to find available micro-loans and grant opportunities to enable compliance with reopening guidelines.


Plans for Post-July 31

The Restoration team (KPF, James Corner Field Operations, Farzana Gandhi Design Studio, AE Superlab) remains committed to design development and implementation of reopening suggestions for Restoration, their tenants, and the greater community. We will continue to refine and develop the Plans that allow Restoration to reopen their offices safely, COVID-19 Protocols that may continue to adjust based on phasing and city guidelines, and Pamphlets that will demystify these guidelines. We will proceed with a robust and continued engagement with stakeholders and the community at large with conversation events and focused workshops guided by the pamphlets. We will develop and implement Pop-Ups for Restoration Plaza, rooftop spaces, and Fulton Street with re-deployable and adaptable furnishings that can meet the current and future needs of Restoration. Some of these longer-term ideas can extend to up to a 3-year timeline as Restoration is currently in the planning stages for a new facility. The proposed concepts are designed to be reused and recycled in the new complex and greater neighborhoods as needs and context change over time. Finally, each of the design firms on our team have included contact information in this document such that both Restoration and organizations/small businesses in the neighborhood may reach out for further consultation, design, and implementation with an ongoing and fruitful relationship with the Bedford-Stuyvesant community.

Please refer to the CDC, New York State, and Federal guidelines for up-to-date guidance regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. Face masks will be worn at all times in the office. There are disposable masks available for use located at the office entry on the supply table. You are also able to use your own face masks per the New York State recommendations. Please discard used masks in an appropriate bin which are being provided with disposable liners for the collection of PPE gear. Windows will be periodically opened to allow for outside air. This will be done by designated individuals when the outside temperature and humidity are at appropriate levels and should not be done by anyone else unless directed to do so. A cleaning specialist will be assigned to conduct regular cleaning and disinfection of the offices. Hand sanitizer stations have been provided throughout the office. All carpets have been shampooed and cleaned thoroughly. Signage has been posted throughout the office with instructions and advice. Signage arrows on the floors indicate which direction to travel. Signage dots on the floors designating 6’ distances have been placed in the elevator waiting area, at the beverage stations, and at toilet room entrances. Personal utility tools (designed and built by our innovative model department) are available to all staff and can be found at the office entry supply table.

Sheffield Building Art Installation An Opportunity to Engage with Restoration Art and/or Local Schools within the Community

Temporary modular structure to showcase artwork Each piece is inserted into a picture frame that rotates around a rod or a dowel. The artwork can be placed on one side with its description on the other side. The frames collectively create a mosaic wall rotating to create a dynamic rhythm. Complementary to murals proposed along the block Artworks could be themed to reflect the artist’s experience during COVID-19, how they coped with quarantine, and what Message can they share from that experience Local materials can be used to build the project, such as salvaged wood, and materials that can be purchased from home depot.

Two permutations of the structure shown above Other configurations are possible or installation could multiply into mini structures

Plans & Operation

The roof on the Sheffield Building, while not previously utilized for tenants or the public, is a found space that offers a unique opportunity for inhabitation.

Rooftop Pop-Up Existing Site Photos

The Buildings

Plans & Operation

Equivalent to the size of the West Plaza, the rooftop can become a place of respite for those working in Restoration buildings and possibly partner organizations and the public. With ample space to remain socially distanced, here people can take off their masks, exercise, relax, and enjoy some fresh air. Adding greenery in the form of small trees, potted plants, and planting beds, along with surfacing (astroturf) and lightweight shading devices will make the rooftop a much cooler and inviting place. Movable furniture can be utilized for both comfort and flexibility. One elevator and two stairwells provide easy and safe egress to the rooftop. A structural analysis is under development to understand any constraints or limitations associated with inhabiting the roof.A waterproofing consultant should also be engaged to review the existing waterproofing and recommend any necessary fixes. Final design ideas will take into account the results from these studies.

A running track can frame the space and provide a new opportunity for those working in the building to exercise safely outdoors and combat today’s sedentary lifestyle, exacerbated by the current COVID-19 quarantine lifestyle. The track could be paired with simple outdoor exercise equipment that supports cardio health and improves strength, balance, flexibility, and endurance, while at the same time providing intergenerational meeting points for the community to come together.

Statement on Airborne Transmission of SARS-CoV-2 •• Transmission of SARS-CoV-2 through the air is sufficiently likely that airborne exposure to the virus should be controlled.

Environmental Health Committee (EHC) Emerging Issue Brief:

Pandemic COVID-19 and Airborne Transmission What is the issue? Late in 2019, China experienced a large outbreak of a novel coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2 that caused the respiratory disease COVID-19. Initial assumptions by the World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) were that this new virus had transmission characteristics of similar type and magnitude to a virus that caused a global outbreak in 2002-2003 (SARS). That outbreak subsided after 9 months resulting in about 8000 infected cases in 26 countries that occurred mostly in healthcare settings.1 In contrast by the end of January 2020, Riou and Althaus predicted both human-to-human transmission of COVID-19 and the ensuing pandemic .2 On February 16, WHO declared the COVID-19 outbreak a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC). On March 12, 2020, WHO proclaimed COVID-19 a pandemic. At that time there were more than 118,000 cases in 114 countries and 4291 deaths. By early April 2020, there were more than 1.5 million COVID-19 cases worldwide and more than 80,000 deaths. Early hypotheses based on the genetic composition of SARS-CoV-2 were that it originated in bats and passed to humans through a different animal host in the winter of 2019-2020 at a wet market in Wuhan, China.3 These hypotheses included an assumption of transmission based on the experience of SARS-CoV in 2003 and centered on droplet transmission at close range. During the 2002-2003 pandemic, SARS-CoV was shown to have airborne disease transmission potential.4 COVID-19 has developed into a pandemic more severe than SARS in 2003. Subsequent observational studies and modeling of COVID-19 suggest the likelihood of transmission through the air via aerosols.5 6 7 8 9 10 Two important questions that urgently require answers include:

Wayfinding & COVID-19 Protocol Graphics

The “Adopt-a-Square” Murals are part of the “Be a Good Neighbor” Program, helping to bring the community together in a way that enlivens the space with bright and vibrant visual graphic cues for social distancing that are reflective of and celebrate the neighborhood. The 6’ x 6’ square murals are painted on the ground throughout the West Plaza and the Central Plaza Amphitheater, creating clear and intuitive ways to practice social distancing, especially during programmed events such as outdoor film screenings and yoga classes already planned throughout the summer. A collaboration with RestorationART, this project seeks to engage the community by inviting local artists, school children, business owners, residents and/or community leaders to adopt a square. Collectively, the murals are a physical act that bring the community together in their making, and leave a powerful mark that celebrates the neighborhood’s strength, showcases its history, and highlights its leaders. The murals could also help to give a sense of what is inside Restoration’s buildings, highlighting business owners and people working in the building, telling their story and sharing what they do as a way to create both an artistic and business environment, which is unique to Restoration. Finally, there is an opportunity to use murals to memorialize loss, something that came up during our conversations with the community. Rather than on the ground, perhaps these murals could carry the same 6’ x 6’ square on blank walls around the block and neighborhood.

July 10, 2020 Focus Groups: What We Heard •• •• •• •• ••

Opportunities for health and wellbeing Spaces that help alleviate inequity Communal gatherings in a safe way Increasing greenery Restorative place for memorializing loss

July 24, 2020 Community Conversation: What We Heard •• The “Be a Good Neighbor” Program is very powerful. Enthusiasm expressed about

how strategies such as the “land swaps” encourage the sharing of resources, property, information and materials, as well as how it relates to communicating how to be healthy, such as wearing masks to not only protect yourself, but also those around you.

•• Excitement about open space concepts presented that provide more greenery, comfort, places to sit and relax, all of which encourage mental and physical health. These will be a welcoming, vibrant and dramatic change from what is there now, helping to pull the community in, specifically the art murals and ideas around a connected corridor with slow streets! In general, there was discussion about ways to create a balance that reflects Restoration as both a business environment and an artistic environment, something that is unique and special to the complex.

•• Concern expressed about addressing the lack of lighting (Fulton St. in particular is

poorly lit), having a plan for maintenance (specifically planting), along with developing funding strategies so that all of these additions stay vibrant, effective and continue to add to the community.

•• Excitement about Programming Pop-ups that build off of and add to what Restoration is already doing. Consider access to and training for technology, winter programming and activities and Bed-Stuy’s version of Smorgasburg: Bed-StuYummy, Smorga-Stuy, BedStewy, Taste-Stuy, Stuy-borg, Get Fed Stuy!

The main entrance to the plaza is from Fulton Street, approximately 6’ above street level, adjacent to Applebee’s. Given the elevation change and lack of visual access into the plaza from the street, it does not feel overly inviting or accessible to the public. The 6,600 sf West Plaza can fit anywhere from 25 to 50 people while maintaining 6 feet of social distance between people. In the summer, active use is best suited for mornings (while it is in shade) and evenings, as the plaza is in full sun for most of the day and can be quite hot.

The Central Plaza features an oval amphitheater bordered by seating steps, and can hold a 100’ x 150’ tent. Outside the amphitheater, some trees offer minimal shade and there is a small open plaza. Public restrooms are located next to the Central Plaza’s Herkimer entrance. Due to the amphitheater’s clear perimeter, this space allows for more controlled access and circulation patterns and can be secured if needed.

Opportunity for overlaps: Marcy Plaza, Restoration Plaza, and Fulton Street Closure Throughout our process, we collaborated with the Neighborhoods Now Bed-Stuy Gateway BID team to develop integrated strategies that reinforce intentions for open space use in Marcy Plaza, Restoration Plaza, and the Fulton Street Closure. Community engagement events were held jointly between teams with stakeholder representation from both Restoration as well as the BID to ensure that common community challenges were identified. Finally, Partner and Partners generously developed a common graphic package such that signage and wayfinding could be made consistent from Restoration block to neighborhood.

Bed-Stuy Community Outreach Community Conversations Event 2

200

Our twenty-two community stakeholders were invited back two weeks later for a second Community Conversations Event. The Restoration and BID Neighborhoods Now teams presented a series of preliminary reopening strategies for open space in the neighborhood inclusive of programming on sidewalks, streets, plazas, and vacant lots. These strategies directly responded to the community challenges that were identified in the first event. Feedback during the conversation was quite positive, especially with respect to community participation in murals, art projects, signage campaigns, and pamphlet dissemination. Critical points were made regarding the need to be mindful of the various types of constituent populations who would be served by the open space programming (business owners, residents, workers traveling from other neighborhoods). Concerns were raised about maintenance of exterior furnishings and barriers and the need for year-round programming. Key Need As Articulated By The Community

•• Clear COVID-19 related communications strategy in multiple languages for health, wayfinding, reopening protocols

•• “Pop-up” use of available open spaces (streets, sidewalks, plazas, vacant lots, parking

lots) as well as communal public spaces for gathering, dining, exercise/play, memorials, and special events.

•• Address pre-COVID challenges recently exacerbated: Access to healthy food/technology, Infrastructure, Heat and lack of shade/greenscape, Wayfinding, Congestion on Fulton St, Air quality, Noise, Lighting, Underutilized spaces, Transportation, Pedestrian and Bike Safety, and Trash/Recycling.

•• Need for community building/networking for support and resilience with community participatory projects.

•• Year-round flexible programming of open spaces with “fold-away” and adaptable resources.

Social Media + Broader Outreach Our second Community Conversations Event was broadcast live on the Bed Stuy Restoration Facebook Page. The community was encouraged to post questions and concerns during the event and these were addressed during our conversation.

•• An invitation to participate and view the event on

Facebook was distributed with a link to 21,000 community residents. The link remains live and those who were unable to join live continue to have the opportunity to view the video.

•• Over 820 people tuned into the event live and 60 engaged directly.

•• The video of the event posted on the Facebook page

has been reposted on several other facebook pages and continues to be watched and commented on.

•• Community stakeholders have been encouraged to

repost the event through their own organization social media channels and to set up Facebook watch parties for communal video viewing.

•• This social media engagement has provided quite a bit of positive feedback and has been a great way to build awareness regarding the Neighborhoods Now Initiative with Bed-Stuy.

Open Space Guidelines

Open Space in the Neighborhood As part of the“Be a Good Neighbor� Program, the design team has started to map all unused space within the neighborhood (see a list in the Appendix) that have an opportunity to be repurposed for small businesses or community groups. The next steps are to work with the Bed-Stuy BID to contact the land owners and determine who might be interested in participating, then connecting those participants with the businesses and community groups in need.

Open Space Guidelines

Under the current Open Restaurants New York Initiative, businesses are allowed to occupy sidewalks and street parking spaces that are within the length of their building frontage. This system does not work for all businesses such as those who have a fire hydrant or bus stop in front of their shop. Others simply require more space to operate, such as a dance studio.As part of the“Be a Good Neighbor” Program The land swap initiative aims to help facilitate a joint small business application for “NYC Open Restaurant” sidewalk use permit to allow for storefront businesses to share unused sidewalk rights with neighboring businesses in need of more space than is allowed by their own store frontage length. Another part of this initiative is mapping existing vacant, unused and underutilized lots in the hopes of facilitating negotiations between those who have excess space and those that need space to successfully reopen their businesses. These spaces could also be used to provide public resources and services or community building projects.

Land Swap

1. A cafe with a bus stop in front of their store could use the parking lot space in front of the tax office.

2. A cafe with a bus stop in front of their store could use the vacant lot on the same street to set up outdoor service.

3. A barbershop with minimal frontage could extend into the neighboring unused space.

4. A dance studio that is unable to hold classes inside could utilize a church parking lot on the days the church does not need it.

Pamphlets: Restoration within Bed-Stuy Neighborhood Opportunity for the Restoration Block to Act as a “Case Study of Best COVID-19 Re-Opening Strategies

213

Central to the Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation’s mission is to partner with residents and businesses to improve the quality of life in Central Brooklyn. Through community pamphlet distribution and focused workshop events, the Restoration intends to provide Bed-Stuy residents, small business owners, and office workers support, awareness, and education regarding reopening strategies. The Restoration block acts as a case study for best practices and implementation that the community can look to as a model. Pamphlets have been created at three scales and for three audiences: • Block: Office Workers & Clients -- reopening protocols and environmental graphics (wayfinding, social distancing) for offices using the Restoration Block as a case study • Street: Small Business Owners -- reopening protocols for small businesses such as restaurant/cafe, hair salon and bodega along with pop-ups on the street for communal use • Neighborhood: Be a Good Neighbor -- community building through access to services, participatory art activities, and land swaps/sharing of open space The information and/or recommendations set forth herein related to the COVID-19 pandemic are based on publicly available information and should not be relied upon as legal or medical advice.
