#WePlaza – Do You?

Facebook

The NPP team is fortunate to have a front-row seat to the amazing way neighborhood Plaza Partners produce, host and support public expression at their plazas. DOT’s 71 pedestrian plazas are our newest civic commons, continuing New York’s long tradition of providing public space for peaceful demonstrations, vigils, protests, and memorials.

So we are joining other advocates for safe, livable streets in asking Mayor de Blasio to make strategic improvements to these public spaces, to help make gatherings of free expression "safer, more effective, and welcoming to all New Yorkers who want to participate in civic action." Full text of the letter to Mayor de Blasio below.
