Friends of Elizabeth Street Garden remains independent and fully committed to our mission to preserve Elizabeth Street Garden as a unique public green, open space and New York City Park.

Fund the Fight!

Friends received a generous challenge grant from an anonymous donor to kick-start our Fund the Fight! fundraising drive to save the Garden. Please consider contributing.

Developing the Garden Is a Bad Idea

HPD Is Not Telling the Truth

Since 2013, Friends of Elizabeth Street Garden has solicited and secured support for saving the Garden from 7,500 community members, Community Board 2, 18 parks and community organizations, and nearly all of our local elected officials. Find details on our Supporters page.

These elected officials also support developing affordable housing at an alternative site that provides five times as much housing for local seniors, a site previously promised as parkland that will not be available if the Garden is developed.
