Three Ways to Help Save the Garden:
Join us as we “wake up” Council Member Margaret Chin and Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration. Tell them to stop ignoring our community. Tell them that we will not rest until our beloved park is saved.
The Garden is not yet saved, and we need your help — two minutes worth. Let potential developers know how committed we are to saving Elizabeth Street Garden before they spend time and money preparing proposals for the City.
Please contribute today to fund the fight to save Elizabeth Street Garden. Your gift will go twice as far thanks to a $10,000 matching challenge grant from an anonymous donor. Help fund vital public relations and legal advice, banners, posters and flyers. Four hundred $25 contributions will get us to $10,000.
The Garden serves hundreds of visitors daily with as many volunteers, supporters have written 5,000 letters to stop development and Friends of Elizabeth Street Garden publishes newsletters regularly to 7,000 email subscribers.
We appreciate the public support of nearly all of our elected officials, Manhattan Community Board 2, former NYC Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe and the 16 dedicated parks and community groups helping us defend our neighborhood open space. Find details on our Supporters page.
