Downtown Alliance Beautifies Wall Street Park on Community Planting Day 2010
More than one hundred Lower Manhattan residents turned out this weekend to take part in the Alliance for Downtown New York’s third annual Spring Community Planting Day to spruce up Wall Street Park. “It was great to see so many Lower Manhattan residents and workers out Saturday to help beautify Wall Street Park,” said Elizabeth H. Berger, president of the Downtown Alliance. “And we were so glad that the Parks Department and elected officials could come get their hands dirty with us.”
The Spring Community Planting Day took place on Saturday in the park, which is located between Water and South streets. New York City Council Member Margaret Chin and downtown residents and workers alike showed up to volunteer and plant.
“I am delighted to join the Alliance for Downtown and my neighbors from across lower Manhattan at today’s Spring Community Planting Day” said Council Member Chin. “On such a beautiful day, it’s wonderful to be outside and enjoying gardening with the downtown community. We have to make the most of our green space here in District 1, and I will keep working to improve our parks for all New Yorkers.”
