Jennifer Nersesian oversees Gateway National Recreation Area spanning Sandy Hook, Staten Island and Jamaica Bay.

Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy – is preparing to tackle a dilemma that plagues the institution nationwide. She is working to attract a new generation of parkgoer in the face of changing national demographics.
