“Jamaica is on the rise, and a local nonprofit wants young people from the neighborhood and beyond to get interested in architecture to one day become part of the construction boom. The idea is the brainchild of Alicia White, a Jamaica resident and founder of Project Petals, a group focused on helping communities in underserved neighborhoods. White said that while working on several environmental projects in Southeast Queens, including building a path in Railroad Park in Rochdale, she had to consult architects and architectural designers on a daily basis.”
