Boyeong Hong receives the William H. Whyte Award

Boyeong Hong, a Civic Analytics Postdoc at the Marron Institute who earned her PhD from the NYU Tandon School of Engineering, has been awarded the William H. Whyte Award for Creativity and Ingenuity in Planning from the American Planning Association NY Metro Chapter for her work at the Urban Design Forum analyzing homelessness in the public realm in New York City.

Together with Kevin Gurley at MTA and Julie Chou at MAP, Boyeong Hong produced a booklet titled The Need for Public Bathrooms, which is based on an analysis of public bathrooms in New York City and abroad. The booklet discusses best practices, design, typologies, guidelines, and how to build more public bathrooms to improve conditions in our cities. Her work was presented at the New Museum, and has been used as an advocacy tool in Community Board meetings.
