City Invites Developers to Submit Proposals to Destroy Elizabeth Street Garden
Garden Supporters Vow to Fight!
Join Friends of Elizabeth Street Garden at a press conference from 1 – 2 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 21 at Elizabeth Street Garden to let the mayor and city council know that our community will not be ignored and that Elizabeth Street Garden should be saved!
The Garden is not yet saved, and we need your help — two minutes worth:
Send this letter to Mayor de Blasio and tell him that you oppose the City’s plan to build affordable housing that would destroy Elizabeth Street Garden!
Thank you to the more than 3,000 supporters who have already responded.
Friends of Elizabeth Street Garden serves hundreds of daily visitors and volunteers and regularly publishes a biweekly newsletter to 6,600 subscribers.
