What has kept us sane over this past two years? Our Parks. Big or small, all over our five boroughs, our Parks are a welcoming respite from the four-walls and concrete sidewalks that have become too large a percentage of our urban life. New Yorkers were promised just 1% of Mayor Adams’ Executive Budget to go towards NYC Park expenses. And now we learn that our NYC Parks aren’t even getting that!
Now budgeted for only .6% of the Executive Budget we must ask Mayor Adams to keep his promise. Join the Play Fair Budget Rally on Thursday, May 26th from 10:00 to 11:00am at City Hall to remind the Mayor that a promise is a promise.
Finally, remember to register to testify for parks at the Executive Budget Hearing on Wednesday, May 25 at 10 AM. Register here ASAP – registration is first-come-first-served. Expect testimony talking points shortly.
