Seen & Heard: Walk to the water in Hudson Square

WALK TO THE WATER IN HUDSON SQUARE
The Hudson Square BID and artist Clementine Martinez have created a way-finding system that uses outdoor art pieces to take viewers through a historical walking tour of the neighborhood. The exhibit leads viewers to the river past 20 painted spheres on a path along Spring and Washington streets to the new crossing to Hudson River Park just south of the Google building at St. John’s Terminal. The artworks are accompanied by a digital guide that dive deeper into the events and places that inspired each artwork with members of the community sharing stories about the neighborhood.

ONLINE PETITION FOR 1% FOR PARKS
The folks at City Hall Park have asked neighbors to join a New Yorkers for Parks petition that asks the mayor to devote 1 percent of its budget to the Parks Department. The petition reads: “On the campaign trail, you ‘proudly committed to a ‘percent for parks’ plan,’ stating that ‘parks are not a luxury, it’s a necessity.’ Since taking office, you and your administration have repeatedly reaffirmed your forward-thinking commitment ‘to ensuring one-percent of the city budget goes to parks.’ But your administration has not yet followed through.” Join here.
