Jack Doyle, the Executive Director of New Settlement Apartments, was named the “Mayor of Renewal” in a New York Times article last week that profiled the “real mayors of New York.” The glowing profile highlighted Jack’s contributions to the Mt. Eden neighborhood of the Bronx. He works to build community there as both a longtime resident of the area and as the director of the community-based organization. New Settlement owns and manages many affordable housing buildings and hosts cultural and educational programs. Our project New Settlement Community Campus is the most recent venue in which the organization is supporting the neighborhood. If you haven’t checked out the amazing programs provided at the Community Center — Alvin Ailey dance classes, yoga, and swimming, to name just a few — we suggest you follow their Facebook page.
Congratulations, Jack. We are proud to partner with New Settlement on their work to make New York City communities vibrant and strong, and we’re happy that the NYT honors these heroes.
