The Alliance for Downtown New York & Glenwood Team up for Spring Community Planting Day


Last weekend the Glenwood Management team was thrilled to co-sponsor the Alliance For Downtown New York's Third Annual Spring Community Planting Day… and even more thrilled by the huge turnout of lower Manhattan residents who spent hours getting their hands dirty to help spruce up the no-longer-forlorn Wall Street Park.




The weather was hot and sunny at the Alliance for Downtown New York's Community Planting Day, and more than one hundred people showed up between at Wall and South Streets and dove right in, cleaning and raising the existing soil, and planting dozens of annuals–including hardy and long-blooming coleus, wax begonias, petunias, marigolds, impatiens and dusty millers–throughout the park.




Part of the Downtown Alliance for Downtown's Going Green initiative, which is dedicated to advancing Lower Manhattan as a new kind of sustainable business district, the 2010 Spring Community Planting Day inspired volunteers of all sorts, from Parks Department employees (thank you!), to lots of little kids (thank you!), to Glenwood neighbors and friends (thank you!), to elected officials such as New York City Council Member Margaret Chin, below, on the right (thank you!). 




Thanks to you, Wall Street Park has never looked better, and Glenwood Management promises to continue to do whatever we can to make our communities feel like home.
