Three Ways to Help Save the Garden:

1. Sound the Alarm, Attend Dec. 7 Wake-Up Rally

Wednesday, Dec.7, Noon–1 p.m.
Outside NYC Council building, 250 Broadway, between Murray Street and Park Place

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.

2. Tell Developers How Much You Love Elizabeth Street Garden and Will Fight to Save Our Park

Send Our New Letter Today

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.

3. Fund the Fight

2x Match: Act Now and Double Your Impact

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.

Developing the Garden Is a Bad Idea

HPD Is Not Telling the Truth

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.
