A Gala for Hudson River Park!

Dear Readers,

If you are at all familiar with the west side of New York City, you know that an astounding transformation has taken place there over the last decade and a half.

What used to be miles of decaying piers and parking lots along the Hudson River is now Hudson River Park --a green, gorgeous, and beloved natural and recreational treasure.   Four miles long, it is the longest waterfront park in the country and attracts 17 million visits a year!

I am so proud to be on the board of Friends of Hudson River Park - an independent, nonprofit dedicated to the completion, care, and enhancement of the park, and the designated fundraising partner of the Hudson River Park Trust.

Friends of Hudson River Park held their annual gala fundraiser last week called Sweet 16 Gala.

It was a wonderful event celebrating 16 years of this incredible park!

Be sure to check out these photos, and especially the amazing 'before' and "after' ones of the park!
