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!

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.
