Fellow Carroll Gardens/Gowanus resident Paula Di Stefano contacted me back in June about research she is currently doing as a Phd student in City University of New York's Environmental Psychology program.I had the pleasure of meeting up with Paula last week to discuss the subject of her second year project: How small business owners in the neighborhood are negotiating changes to the built environment.
She is currently conducting research via interviews, but also through a short 15 question survey.
Since the survey is less about small business owners and contains some general questions concerning Gowanus, Paula would welcome the participation of as many local residents as possible.
(You can contact her directly at pjedistefano AT yahoo DOT com.)
The survey only takes a few minutes, so please click on the survey link here and answer a few quick questions. And we all would be helping Paula.
