The Rockefeller Foundation today honors Joshua David and Robert Hammond and Elizabeth Barlow Rogers with its Jane Jacobs Medal, celebrating their inspiring contributions to the field of urban planning in New York.
David and Hammond are the co-founders of Friends of the High Line, which reclaimed New York’s elevated High Line railroad and transformed the area into a community park and home to public art. Elizabeth Barlow Rogers is a lifelong advocate for vibrant public spaces. New York’s inaugural Central Park Administrator, she founded the Central Park Conservancy in 1980 and serves as an author, teacher, and lecturer.
Congratulations to the winners!
