Thank you to Partnerships for Parks for hosting this meet-and-greet event at the Arsenal on 5th Avenue. Good to hear from our umbrella organization City Parks Foundation ED Heather Lubov and Partnerships for Parks Director Sabina Saragoussi and our own local Coordinator Rene Cuenca!
Wonderful to meet many new Parkies as well as (some of us very) old ones!
Great to meet, in person, both our new Deputy Parks Commissioner Iris Rodriguez-Rosa (who understands what working in some of our struggling parks means) and to our new Manhattan Parks Commissioner Anthony Perez (who has already done a LOT of homework as he comes into this job).
We already appreciate their enthusiasm, fresh perspectives and open joy in the job, the people and the parks.
