Joyce Hwang, Ellen Driscoll, and Mackenzie Younger led a City as Living Laboratory WALK around New York’s Chinatown. Starting from Collect Pond Park and moving through Columbus Park, the WALK focused on how this neighborhood has evolved over time, considering its precious green spaces, the evolution of its landscape, the history and persistent mythologies around waste, and the symbiotic relationship between human and non-human habitats.

Many thanks to CaLL for inviting us to participate in their Fall WALK series, and thank you to everyone who came out for this event!
