State Parks Boost the Economy

Gregory DeFreitas

Dr. Gregory DeFreitas, professor of economics, founding director of the Labor Studies degree program and director the Center for the Study of Labor and Democracy was interviewed by Newsday about a report that says state parks boost Long Island’s economy. They are good for public health and job generators. Some of the benefits, while they can’t be definitively monetized, are deeply valued by residents. That sense of well-being may be reflected in higher property values and lower crime rates.
