Membership Information
Join the Neighborhood Open Space Coalition and/or 
Friends of Gateway National Recreation Area

Neighborhood Open Space Coalition (NOSC) established 1980 is dedicated to improving the quality of life for all New Yorkers by expanding and enhancing our city's parks and open spaces through communications, research, planning and advocacy. We also work for the development of greenways and the our urban waterfront.   Friends of Gateway (FoG) is dedicated to protecting, improving and enhancing public awareness of, and access to the New York metropolitan area's unique National Recreation Area. We work to ensure the preservation of Gateway's significant natural and historic areas, while encouraging the addition of appropriate recreational, educational and cultural programs and facilities to serve an urban population that is woefully under-served in terms of open space opportunities.
