The studio aimed to uncover and connect the past and present stories of Wallabout, highlight community characteristics that make it exceptional, uplift narratives that call attention to the injustices that have shaped the area, and envision a more economically just future. The report provides a new perspective on Wallabout’s history and existing conditions, presents a path forward to correcting divides within the community, and ends with a set of recommendations for the Partnership.
