We’re asking everyone—at NYU, in the Village, and all throughout the city— to help us save New York City’s parks, by signing this petition to the mayor.

We’re asking him to stand with us, in favor of Judge Donna Mills’ landmark decision to protect three parks from NYU’s expansion plan. Predictably, NYU is appealing that decision, in hopes of pushing forward with the Sexton Plan, against the will of the entire community (NYU’s faculty included).

This isn’t just about protecting Greenwich Village: Judge Mills’ decision sets a vital precedent for every park in New York City—and so we want this mayor to honor it, by not appealing it.

Please sign this petition NOW, and send it far and wide:

Thank you for your time and attention.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
