As Executive Director of the New York City-based non-profit New York Restoration Project (NYRP), Deborah Marton manages NYRP’s work transforming open space in underserved communities to create a greener, more sustainable New York City. She oversees all organizational activities, ranging from park restoration and operations in Northern Manhattan, renovation and maintenance of NYRP’s 52 community gardens, and implementation of MillionTreesNYC in partnership with the NYC Dept. of Parks & Recreation. In her previous capacity as NYRP’s SVP of Programs, Deborah developed NYRP’s identity as an urban land conservancy working across municipal jurisdictions to increase environmental sustainability citywide. Most recently, she created the vision and program for a waterfront site in Northern Manhattan that will be developed as a center for recreational boating and environmental education. Deborah received a Masters in Landscape Architecture from the Harvard Graduate School of Design and a J.D. from New York University School of Law.
