It could prove to be quite difficult to show any causal relationship between property values and community gardens, too
many other variables to take into account. But if you do have some way to do an evaluation that will yield some kind of
relationship between community gardens and real estate values, I suggest that you check out our New York City
Community Garden Mapping Project web site:
It may be a good place to start. The maps include other open space, vacant land and vacant buildings. We have a
database lots of information about the community gardens and you should be able to get information about property
values from the NYC Dept of Finance. www.nyc.gov
Also check out OASIS www.oasisnyc.net for open space and property info.
Would love to see what you come up with.
