Hester Street Collaborative

The Hester Street Collaborative (HSC) seeks to create more equitable, sustainable, and vibrant neighborhoods where community voices lead the way in improving their built environment. HSC uses the design, planning, education and community visioning expertise of our staff and partners to place community members of all ages at the center of the place-making process. HSC utilizes a hands-on approach to community design that improves the quality of life for residents in socially and economically underserved communities throughout New York City by providing them with the tools and resources to have a direct impact on improving their parks, schools and other public spaces. Founded in 2002 in NYC’s Lower East Side community by the founding partners of Leroy Street Studios. A small architecture firm in Lower Manhattan, three Leroy Street partners remain actively engaged as volunteer board members. HSC has attracted talented and committed board members across a range of fields including design, planning, architecture, preservation, marketing, law and finance. The board completed a strategic plan in Spring 2013. It is anticipated that the incoming Executive Director would use this plan as a starting point in working with the board to chart the future direction of HSC.
