Asphalt Green is a nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting individuals of all ages and backgrounds to achieve health through a lifetime of sports and fitness. Asphalt Green was recently awarded a contract to operate a community center in Battery Park City scheduled to open by January 2012. At a crucial stage of expansion, the Capstone team was charged to conduct an extensive scan of the community and cultural landscape in Battery Park City and surrounding areas, including Community Boards 1, 2 and 3. Information gathered included demographics, public schools, senior services, community sports leagues, youth and senior organizations, pools, and arts organizations. The results of the community scan will assist Asphalt Green in understanding existing resources and its programming value to the community's unmet needs. The report summarizes these findings and provides recommendations for Asphalt Green to consider with respect to identifying the strongest potential partners for community and cultural programming.
