It includes a range of designs for public spaces, parks and streets to accommodate increased demand for exterior areas, from a case study of 82nd Street in Jackson Heights (borough of Queens in New York City) and cycling infrastructure proposals, to the connection in Queens, NY, with the Neighborhoods Now initiative.

The Manual also includes research on visualizing the impact of other past and present pandemics on architecture and cities.
