About

Friends of Dag Hammarskjold Plaza is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit community organization whose mission is the care, preservation and beautification of Dag Hammarskjold Plaza and its Katharine Hepburn Garden. We also organize events in the interests of fostering community and promoting the park as an arena for culture and entertainment. Bound by the conviction that healthy parks make healthy neighborhoods, we work in voluntary partnership with NYC Parks and Recreation and other agencies. Membership is open to all who share our commitment to public green space regardless of race, color or religion.
