Many vacant lots can be found in East Harlem. However, they are rarely taken advantage of as a means of improving local residents’ quality of life. At 1650 and 1651 Madison Ave., two diagonally adjacent neighborhood lots are designed for various atmospheric daylight phenomena in a colored light and shadow interplay with each other.
