The Red Hook
Green Map Project
The Red Hook Green Map
In the summer of 2009, Hook Productions‟ youth created a Red
Hook Green Map which:


                                •Identifies “green” places and projects in
                                Red Hook

                                •Showcases interviews with local
                                stakeholders

                                •Highlights the ingenuity and
                                resourcefulness of the community
Who Made it Happen ?
The Red Hook Green Map was created by Hook Productions, a City Parks Foundation educational
program that operates out of the Red Hook Recreation Center. For the 2009 summer season, City
Parks Foundation‟s Catalyst program of Partnerships for Parks added a new community mapping
component to Hook Productions‟ ongoing program of multimedia, media literacy, and new media
training. City Parks Foundation joined the global movement of locally-led Green Map projects and
Hook Productions used Green Map® System‟s participatory mapmaking website, the Open Green
Map, to make a multi-voiced interactive map.
What is a Green Map?
        According to Green Map System, “a Green
        Map® is a locally-made map of the natural,
        cultural and social environment that uses Green
        Map Icons to identify, promote and link
        sustainability and related community assets.”
        The Red Hook Green Map is one of 600 projects
        in 55 countries, and our process will be shared
        to help future Green Mapmakers.

Why make a youth-created
          Red Hook Green Map?
There were many compelling reasons for
youth to create the Red Hook Green Map.
The Red Hook Green Map:
     • Encouraged Brooklyn youth to explore
       and discover Red Hook
     • Motivated teens to delve into the
       neighborhood‟s past, present, and
       potential future
     • Provided a venue for youth and
       community stakeholders to voice their
       perceptions, opinions, and vision of the
       community
     • Showcases local businesses, community
       organizations, and green space
     • Serves as an information clearinghouse
       and a community forum about
       neighborhood issues and concerns
Making the
Red Hook Green Map
     There were 24 students in the Summer 2009 Hook
     Productions program that ranged in age from 14 to 20
     years old and the majority of the students were from
     Brooklyn. To create the Red Hook Green Map the
     teens:
           • Learned about video production, online mapmaking,
             the local environment, and sustainability issues.
           • Researched and collected information about the
             community to be included in the Red Hook Green
             Map.
           • Interviewed and filmed members of the Red Hook
             community about the neighborhood‟s legacy-- past,
             present and future.
           • Participated in field trips that allowed them to explore
             the neighborhood and meet community stakeholders
             involved in local green space and environmental
             justice issues
           • Developed communication and „eco-literacy‟ skills
Geography of the
              Red Hook Green Map
As of August 2009, the Red Hook Green Map includes these features added by the
Hook Productions students:

                                     Over 40 sites with descriptions and
                                     photographs taken by the youth


                                     Up to 8 Green Map Icons representing each site


                                     Youth commentary on various sites

What can the Red Hook
              Green Map do for you?
The goal is for the Red Hook Green Map to
be a vibrant community resource. The Red
Hook Green Map can be a place where

        organizations addressing
        environmental issues

        box by building the commitment,
        networks, skills, and spirit to facilitate
        change

        class or program in order to gain
        insight into the youth perspective
      • Use cutting-edge technology to create
        a digital forum for community
        discussion
Mapping as a tool for
community exchange
           The Red Hook Green Map is a place
           where community members can share
           information, educate one another, and
           cross-promote.
           For example, Added Value, the
           organization that runs the Red Hook
           Community Farm, is highlighted on the

Red Hook Green Map Report

  • 1. The Red Hook Green Map Project
  • 2. The Red Hook Green Map In the summer of 2009, Hook Productions‟ youth created a Red Hook Green Map which: •Identifies “green” places and projects in Red Hook •Showcases interviews with local stakeholders •Highlights the ingenuity and resourcefulness of the community
  • 3. Who Made it Happen ? The Red Hook Green Map was created by Hook Productions, a City Parks Foundation educational program that operates out of the Red Hook Recreation Center. For the 2009 summer season, City Parks Foundation‟s Catalyst program of Partnerships for Parks added a new community mapping component to Hook Productions‟ ongoing program of multimedia, media literacy, and new media training. City Parks Foundation joined the global movement of locally-led Green Map projects and Hook Productions used Green Map® System‟s participatory mapmaking website, the Open Green Map, to make a multi-voiced interactive map.
  • 4. What is a Green Map? According to Green Map System, “a Green Map® is a locally-made map of the natural, cultural and social environment that uses Green Map Icons to identify, promote and link sustainability and related community assets.” The Red Hook Green Map is one of 600 projects in 55 countries, and our process will be shared to help future Green Mapmakers. To find out more about green mapping, visit: GreenMap.org
  • 5. Why make a youth-created Red Hook Green Map? There were many compelling reasons for youth to create the Red Hook Green Map. The Red Hook Green Map: • Encouraged Brooklyn youth to explore and discover Red Hook • Motivated teens to delve into the neighborhood‟s past, present, and potential future • Provided a venue for youth and community stakeholders to voice their perceptions, opinions, and vision of the community • Showcases local businesses, community organizations, and green space • Serves as an information clearinghouse and a community forum about neighborhood issues and concerns
  • 6. Making the Red Hook Green Map There were 24 students in the Summer 2009 Hook Productions program that ranged in age from 14 to 20 years old and the majority of the students were from Brooklyn. To create the Red Hook Green Map the teens: • Learned about video production, online mapmaking, the local environment, and sustainability issues. • Researched and collected information about the community to be included in the Red Hook Green Map. • Interviewed and filmed members of the Red Hook community about the neighborhood‟s legacy-- past, present and future. • Participated in field trips that allowed them to explore the neighborhood and meet community stakeholders involved in local green space and environmental justice issues • Developed communication and „eco-literacy‟ skills
  • 7. Geography of the Red Hook Green Map As of August 2009, the Red Hook Green Map includes these features added by the Hook Productions students: Over 40 sites with descriptions and photographs taken by the youth Up to 8 Green Map Icons representing each site Youth commentary on various sites Select video interviews, conducted and produced by Hook Productions teens Here are a few examples of the explorations made by the Hook Productions youth …
