NYC Parks will consider your fantastic ideas and you should also share them as notes below and become an Organizer so you can connect with others to make the futures we imagine real! Keep in mind that NYC Parks isn't going to do your project for you.

Opening buildings costs money and NYC Parks' has a limited budget. HereĀ is a great guide to how to get money for your NYC Parks building stewardship project, created by the Center for Urban Pedagogy, New Yorkers for Parks and Partnerships for Parks: http://welcometocup.org/file_columns/0000/0613/improve_my_park.pdf. Follow the tips for "Capital Projects."

Getting your Council Member on board is key: they have money to give out every year via their discretionary budget; some Members allocate some of their discretionary money to Participatory Budgeting: https://council.nyc.gov/pb/. You can get involved to get the word out about the need to re-activate the building you want to steward.

The building might be landmarked. If it is, any work will need to comply with these rules: http://www1.nyc.gov/site/lpc/applications/applications.page

In April 2017, as a result of years of resident-led advocacy, the City of NY finally made a deal to acquire the last property that comprises the area promised as Bushwick Inlet Park (a commitment made as part of the 2005 upzoning in Greenpoint and Williamsburg). Will this building be part of the future park? What will it be?

This lot was acquired by the City of New York from Bayside Fuel, as part of the plan to build Bushwick Inlet Park. The site needs remediation and part of the acquisition negotiation was that Bayside Fuel would not be responsible for remediation costs going forward.
