GrowNYC is far and away the best and most effective organization I have had the pleasure of working with. In fact, once brought on the board at GrowNYC, I reduced my efforts with other boards so I can focus all my attention to GrowNYC.

Under Marcel & his team, GrowNYC has delivered results with resources they have and have created a vision for the organization that did not previously exist.
