Join Us! Save Our Parks/Save the Village, Rally and Press Conference Featuring a Performance by the World Famous STOMP

Rally and Press Conference Featuring a Performance

by the World Famous STOMP

Wednesday, September 24, 2014 @ Noon

@ LaGuardia Park (LaGuardia Place between W3rd and Bleecker Sts.)

Members of the internationally acclaimed East Village-based group  STOMP, will perform and join parks, gardens and open space supporters, Village residents and elected officials @ our rally to send a message to NYU: “Save Our Parks!” After our rally, petitioners in the lawsuit that saved Mercer Playground, LaGuardia Corner Gardens, and LaGuardia Park from being destroyed, will be in court to fight an appeal by NYU and the City that, if successful, would endanger those parks again. Send a message, lend your voice! Be there!

On January 7th, Judge Donna Mills vindicated the beliefs of parks advocates and community members by officially declaring three Greenwich Village parks as City parkland, effectively halting redevelopment efforts by NYU that would have stripped the community of this valuable open space. Our parks are precious resources in this City and it is our responsibility to continue to fight for them and make each of our communities the sort of places we wish to live. The City and NYU are now appealing her ruling, once again threatening our green spaces.

We need your support!
