Speak Up For Vital Funds For Hudson River Park!

Dear Hudson River Park Friends,

We urge to attend the NYC Council’s hearing on Block 675/Hudson River Park Special District next Tuesday & speak up for vital funds for Hudson River Park!

As spring arrives, we all know how much we love to hang out in our beloved, waterfront park, Hudson River Park. Many of us who live above 23rd street also know how much we would like to see more of the park completed in the northern section, up to 59th Street.

The Hudson River Park Trust will receive considerable resources from development rights sales to developers at Block 675 (West 29-30 Street/11 & 12 Aves)… close to $50 million. These funds will help build out the park in the Community Board 4 between the West 30’s and 59th St.

The NYC Council’s Subcommittee on Zoning and Franchises Committee will be holding a public hearing on May 15th at 10:00 am.

We urge you to attend and speak up for the chance to help complete your wonderful, waterfront park.

Please let me know if you can attend to discuss speaking at the hearing.

When:  Tuesday, May 15th at 10:00 am.

Where:  NYC Council, 250 Broadway, 16th floor committee room

Why:  Help us advocate for the resources to help complete and maintain Hudson River Park.

Please call or email Tony Simone at or at (646) 599-8719 if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you!

Connie Fishman, Executive Director
Hudson River Park Friends
