What Programs and Activities Work Best?

The Village Alliance and Grace Church School invite you to a visioning workshop about the future of Astor Place and Cooper Square as great public spaces.

Construction on the new plazas is scheduled to begin in May, and now is the time to seek your ideas about programming that will enhance and respect the quality of life for New Yorkers while also creating long-lasting community benefits.
