In this thesis I present a map, intended for the short-term, to begin the process of change in development and environmental policy in New York City with the promotion of green building practices. I focus on the low-income minority communities of the South Bronx to ensure all of NYC-even historically marginalized neighborhoods-is part of the journey towards sustainable development. This green building study of New York suggests the potential of new policies and organizations to further the green building movement. By including and supporting historically disinvested communities like the South Bronx in green building policies and projects, we will have moved beyond the mistakes of past environmental, social and economic policies to ones that integrate the three to create holistic tools to guide our journey.
