  1. This is great news. Green jobs are the wave of the present and future and new eco-friendly building design will lead this trend. Collaboration will be key to rebuilding our economy and I am happy to see NYC leading the way. Take the site http://www.greencollareconomy.com for instance. It has a plethora of case studies and white papers that demonstrate how green businesses can thrive in the 21st century. The site also has a directory of thousands of companies who have embraced eco-friendly practices and are adding green collar jobs as a result. In this time of great environmental and economic turmoil, the green collar economy must emerge as the next great American enterprise. I suggest readers visit to learn more.
