“I love working on my AFHNY project because it gives me the opportunity to design in a way that considers the public good first, and to serve those who do not normally have access to architectural services. I always feel energized after working with my fantastic team, it helps me get through the rest of the week!”
— Amy Leong, Project Coordinator, Save Coney Island
