Thank You, NYC Park Workers
On the occasion of “It’s My Park Day,” we thank everyone who contributes to the health and beauty of our parks, from city workers to volunteers to researchers on urban wildlife habitat.
Thank you, Riverside workers
Thank you, volunteer workers, including sixth graders from the Fieldston School who spent hours planting beneath the retaining wall and cleaning along the Greenway.
Thank you, Morningside Park workers
Thank you, NYC researchers who evaluate the viability of urban habitat for migrating birds and other wildlife
Thank you, workers all, sung and unsung, willing and unwilling, paid and unpaid.
May the gods and demons of city budget cuts keep their itchy hands away from our essential, free, democratic institutions, places that are truly open to all – our parks, libraries, schools, and all culture houses that offer free, cheap or pay-what-you-can admission.
What would our city be, what would we be, without them?Explore posts in the same categories: 2010, Birds, In the City, May comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
