Act Now to Save Our Garden
Write Mayor de Blasio Today!

Dear Neighbors and Friends,

As a member of our community, we urgently need your help and your voice.

Write Mayor de Blasio and tell him that you oppose the City’s looming plan to issue a Request For Proposal to developers to build affordable housing that would destroy Elizabeth Street Garden!

We need to act fast to dissuade the NYC Department of Housing Preservation & Development, as this could happen imminently.

How You Can Help:

  1. Write the mayor. Personalize your letter with a short statement about why the Garden is important to you.
  2. Forward this call to action to your neighbors and friends.
  3. Join the conversation in social media.
  • Express your opposition to the City’s plan.
  • Share photos of your favorite moments at the Garden.
  • Tag with #elizabethstreetgarden and #ESGSaveOurGarden.

Thank you,

Jeannine Kiely, President
