Well, our rally in Central Park was fabulous. The day was gloriously beautiful…sunny skies, a little chilly. As my step-Mom says, “It was perfect jeans and sweatshirt weather.” We had a fun group of people including lots of smiling kids, parents, supporters of a Car-Free Central Park. We even had two of the Prospect Park Youth Advocates representing (thank you Oswald Bowman and Michael Cheng!). See their video here. As you will see from the streetfilm by Robin Urban Smith, Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer and Council Member Gale Brewer joined us and echoed our enthusiasm to “get on with the great experiment of a Car-Free park.” The kids loved getting messy in the finger paints and drew amazing signs entitled “What Central Park Means to Me.” We need to keep pushing, but this was a wonderful starting point for us. Thanks for your support. Let’s keep up the good work.
Could it have been any better?
