When it comes to living green, New York can be a challenging place.
For one thing, it is a city that has seen a large influx of new residents in recent years.
It has also experienced a wave of extreme weather that has caused flooding and forced residents to evacuate.
In order to get by, many of us are opting to live in urban spaces with an abundance of greenery and water, which can be hard to maintain.
“I think the challenge is really the lack of space for people to be comfortable,” said Ziyad, who moved to New York in 2015 from Yemen.
Ziyad lives in a large two-bedroom apartment in a Manhattan neighborhood that is one of the city’s most popular.
But the conditions are not as accommodating as many of the residents of other neighborhoods in New England, where green spaces are often more restricted.
With the arrival of the new year, Ziyade and others plan to try to find a home for themselves in the city.
The goal of the project is to make the transition easier for Ziyada, who will now have an apartment on the second floor of the apartment building where she was living.
The project, which is part of a larger program called Green Living Design, aims to give green spaces a better look and feel, and is being overseen by the Brooklyn-based nonprofit Living Green NYC.
There are a lot of people that live in these spaces, but there’s so much space to move around, she said.
As Ziyades experience with the city grows, she’s planning to continue her journey.
After she’s moved in, Zaryad hopes to eventually live in a two-room apartment that can be rented out for as little as $1,500 a month.
Green Living Design is a non-profit organization that helps people in New Orleans and the Bronx find green spaces.
Living Green NYC’s mission is to “make green space accessible to people who can’t afford to live,” according to a statement from the organization.
The group is also working with community groups in the Bay Area and in the Northeast to create a green living map, a database of all the green spaces in the area, including a green map of the New York metropolitan area.
“The project is not just about finding green spaces for our people to live, but to make their own green space for themselves,” Zaryade said.
“We’re going to have a lot more green spaces that are going to be available for people.”
Zaryada said she hopes to continue working on the project with other people who have moved to the city, but she’s also planning to work on her new apartment, too.
She has been able to afford the rent for her new home on a small, one-bedroom, one bathroom apartment, but with the new apartment coming, she hopes she can afford to buy the rest of the unit and have it live up to her standards.
