Visit from an Old Friend

Thank You Christy Dailey and Chris Carlone

SPNA wants to thank Christy Dailey, who was a gardener in Stuyvesant Square from 2007-2008, for keeping Stuyvesant Park in her thoughts. She went on to start her own business, christygardens, but always had a special connection to our park.

When the moratorium on volunteering in the park was lifted this past summer, Christy came to volunteer and helped get the Peter Stuyvesant bed (which she had designed) back in shape.

And now, Christy donated and planted 250 tulip bulbs and 25 Leucojum with her assistant Chris Carlone (shown above).

Christy Dailey is a true lover of Stuyvesant Square!

New Plans for Our Neighborhood

Get Involved

In 2023, Mount Sinai Beth Israel will sell two large properties flanking Stuyvesant Park: 1 and 10 Nathan Perlman Place (in yellow below) in order to reduce operating costs and increase specialization across facilities. This transaction will be one of the largest sales of real estate in Manhattan.

Community Board 6 (CB6) wants to ensure the sale of this property and any future operations will benefit the residents of the neighborhood, maintaining these areas as a community asset. The organization is urging everyone in the neighborhood to become involved in a comprehensive community visioning process to ensure the work is representative and inclusive. To learn more about this sale, sign up for meetings, and have your voice heard, visit https://perlman.cbsix.org/.

Leaves, Leaves, and More Leaves

Thank You Josie DeJesus and SPDogs

Stuyvesant Park’s resident dog owners (SPDogs) teamed up with NYC Parks’ Josie DeJesus to take on the huge task of clearing all of the fall leaves in the park. The leaves were raked and ushered into tens of large bags, and they will be used for mulching and composting. We thank Josie and SPDogs for working hard to maintain our park for all of our neighbors and furry friends.

Campaign to Save Our English Elms

Goal Reached!

Thank you everyone that donated to our campaign to Save Our English Elm Trees! Your generosity raised over $7,000 and has made it possible for us to pay for the critical professional help these 100-year-old trees need to remain healthy for all to enjoy. We also are grateful to Partnership for Parks, which matched up to $2,500 of your donations. The work will take place over the winter, so we can look forward to the elms looking their best this coming spring.
