The Hub

The Hub will be the center for NYC urban environmentalism. It will include information about national organizations and agencies that are working in areas of interest to NYC residents and citywide and local organizations. In its first incarnation it is just an alphabetical list of other places you can go to find out about Cityís environment and improving quality of life for its citizens. Soon we will include a small capsule description of what is on each site in this list.

We invite visitors to The Hub to nominate other sites that you think would be of interest to our urban explorers. Write to and include the Name of the Organization and the www address.
