Dylan Brown began volunteering with NBK Parks in January 2022, then joined the staff as the Outreach & Program Coordinator in June 2022. In his current role, Dylan is mainly focused on supporting North Brooklyn Open Streets Coalition in its efforts to increase the amount of public space within the neighborhood. Dylan is grateful to have the opportunity to work towards a greener North Brooklyn!

Originally a native New Yorker, Dylan completed a degree in Urban Planning in Philadelphia—and then came right back to Brooklyn to apply his talents. When he’s not working, you can catch Dylan biking around the city, browsing in a record store, or hanging on the waterfront taking in the views (which are best in Brooklyn).

Outside of his role at NBK Parks, Edwin is an accomplished creative fiction writer and has self-published more than a dozen short stories!
