The topic of this thesis is the urban public space responses to new residents in old neighborhoods. In phase 1, the GIS collection of demographic changes of New York and typology studies about existing urban parks asks the question: how might urban parks better integrate the new residents into old neighborhoods? This question helps choose the Sunset Park Neighborhood as the study and test site. In phase 2, the site analysis including history, climate, and the park usage of Sunset Park Neighborhood, leads to a preliminary proposal of a new urban park typology for better integrating the new residents into old neighborhoods. Phase 3 aims to produce a practical urban park typology with specific design criteria and test this new urban park typology in Sunset Park Neighborhood. These 3 phases suggest an understanding of the potential possibility of a new urban park typology for integrating diverse people.
