Who We Are

We are citizen custodians, New Yorkers who believe in the importance of public space and gardens, and work to make Dag Hammarskjold Plaza a world-class park and outstanding neighborhood amenity. Our Board of Directors meets a minimum of six times annually.

Officers and directors are elected at our Annual Members Meeting,  at which time the organization’s finances, concerns and achievements are reported. In addition, members hear from our elected officials,  the Parks Department, and the 17th Precinct on a wide range of  issues: park security, impact of the homeless and shelter populations, UN demonstrations,  park maintenance and programs.
