A New Blog by the NYC Council Parks & Recreation Committee

Check out the blog...

A new blog was launched on October 4th by the Office of Council Member Melissa Mark-Viverito, Chair of the NYC Council’s Parks & Recreation Committee.

You will be able to find updates on what the Council's Parks committee is up to, as well as general news and updates on our city’s parks.

You will also be able to check the blog for new information relating to hearings and legislation being considered by the Parks and Recreation Committee.

In my personal dealings with Council Member Mark-Viverito I have found her to be extremely responsive to constituents in addressing the needs and conditions of our parks.

I would encourage anyone interested in our parks to subscribe to the blog to receive e-mail updates each time an article is posted.

It's easy to do by entering your e-mail at the top of the right-hand column of the blog and responding to an email sent to you confirming your subscription request.

The members of the committee are as follows:

Melissa Mark-Viverito - Chairperson
District 8 Manhattan
