Thank You!

the project

We are thrilled to be celebrating the second anniversary of the Parkside Plaza. Over the past two years, the plaza has grown to become critical in displaying  the arts and culture of our community. 

For over 40 years, this space was barren concrete. However with your support, we were able to rejuvenate the plaza by:

-Installing benches and moveable seating for residents to sit and take in the splendor of the park;

-Hosting the Grow NYC farmers market every weekend during the spring, summer and fall seasons;

-Providing outdoor space for numerous cultural events (like PLG Art and local musicians), and

-Beautifing the landscape with plants, flowers and shrubbery


At a time in our society when we are all at risk for losing support and funding for arts, culture and green spaces, your donation to the Parkside Plaza matters now more than ever!

the steps

Every spring we work with local artists, organizations and merchants to host cultural events, resource events and showcase local talent. Our next steps will be to continue our outreach for local artists, further our relationships with resource providers and ensure that we continue to provide the community with a space to enjoy and programming and resources that benefit everyone.

why we're doing it

The Parkside Plaza is "A neighborhood plaza by and for the community".

The plaza exists to help the community and it needs the community to keep programming possible.

The plaza is now a part of our lives and we want our community plaza to continue to be accessible and enjoyable by everyone. The Parkside Plaza would not exist if it weren't for the individual donations from generous community members like you!
