Hudson River Park Gala 2019

Hudson River Park continues to be one of the most vibrant spaces in New York City. I encourage you to visit the next time you're in the area - you will see why it is so special. 

Last week, more than 800 dedicated supporters gathered to celebrate the park’s growth and near completion at the 21st annual Hudson River Park Gala. The event was held at Cipriani South Street and featured a delicious dinner and live auction. This year, it raised three-million dollars to support the Park’s operations and public programming, including its more than 550 year-round educational, environmental, sustainability and cultural programs. The evening also honored three individuals for their dedication to the Park - former New York City Mayor, Michael Bloomberg, Chef David Chang and actor, director and artist, Lucy Liu. The Hudson River Park is considered the largest open space project in Manhattan since Central Park. At four miles long, it is the longest waterfront park in the country and attracts millions of visitors each year. I am very proud to be on the Board of Hudson River Park Friends - an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to the completion, care, and enhancement of the space, and the designated fundraising partner of the Hudson River Park Trust.
