We are watching, Mayor Bloomberg!


New York City didn't need the West Side Stadium, it didn't need the Olympics, and it doesn't need this invasive redesign and reconstruction.


This site is intended to be a means of notification about the events in the planned usurpation of Washington Square Park by private interests.

It will have ongoing news updates and suggestions for actions to take to prevent the irretrievable loss of a world-class meeting and performance space.

It will also celebrate the park with sections about the history of the park and the many features that make it unique and indispensable to New York City, America, and the world.

And it will have a blog selected from your emailed thoughts, ideas, and stories.

It will be updated frequently, so come back often.

This is YOUR site.

And if we can stop the loss of the Park as we know it, this site will continue as a celebration of the world-famous Washington Square Park.

Why is the site in these colors?

Blue for the sky above the park
Green for the trees and grass
Orange for the leaves of fall
Gray for the endangered public paved areas

Red for the state of emergency
