Under The Arch
Last night, The Washington Square Park Council held a benefit called Under The Arch to raise money for the restoration of Washington Square Park. As village residents and longtime supporters of park renovations, we were eager to participate in this event.
It was a memorable night. The weather was perfect, the event was held literally Under The Arch. After cocktails and before dinner, they lit the recently renovated arch for the first time from above and it was spectacular.
The Washington Square Park Council raised $250,000 last night and will need to raise a lot more over the next couple years to do to Washington Square what has been done to Madison Square Park, Bryant Park, and numerous other parks over the past five years.
This public/private partnership for the parks is a great thing and we are proud to be involved and grateful for those who have made The Washington Square Park Council come alive again.
