Two who work to make a difference

Neighborhood leadership takes many forms. From organizing farmers’ markets to advocating tenants’ rights, Mott Haven has many residents who work hard to make the their neighborhood a better place to live.

But this may change.

The city has a plan that could bring new life – and new investment – to the lower Concourse and Harlem River waterfront.
