We support @NY4P's Play Fair rally at City Hall tomorrow (registration: bit.ly/526PFCRally) to advocate for 1% of NYC's budget to parks. This month at St. Vartan Park, @stvartanpark's @KevOKeefe spoke of the 1% need alongside @MBPMarkLevine, @KeithPowersNYC, P.S. 281 reps.
Next winter is the expected start of work on major St. Vartan Park playground upgrades by @NYCParks—thanks to funding secured pre-pandemic by @KeithPowersNYC and Office of the Mayor. Sustainability plans alone include significant increase in surface permeability and tree health.
A free screening of the award-winning 2020 film Minari is coming to St. Vartan Park on June 8 starting at 8:30 p.m., sponsored by @KeithPowersNYC as part of @NYCParks and @MadeinNY's Movies Under the Stars. Visit stvartanpark.org for more on this and other park happenings.
We dug in at today's @PfPNYC It's My Park day with our continued fence restoration + the start of planting 500 daffodil bulbs donated to the conservancy by garden design company Junipr. We enjoyed seeing many in the garden, including 3 visitors from Germany + Cub Scout Pack 422.
We appreciate the generous support via stvartanpark.org in our first dozen days. Today, we started a Facebook page —with this post of video captured last week of remarks by @CarolynBMaloney, @MBPMarkLevine, @KeithPowersNYC, @CMCarlinaRivera, more. fb.watch/d82iyntRGw/
Katherine, a fifth-grade ambassador of The River School (P.S. 281) Green Team, wowed community leaders with these remarks before a recent St. Vartan Park Conservancy-Green Team garden planting activity. Science teacher Adriana Romanzo of the Green Team introduces Katherine.
Tomorrow, @PfPNYC's It's My Park volunteer program returns to St. Vartan Park—from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Last month for the program, Matt Bondy (right)—a candidate for district civil court judge in next month's primary—joined @stvartanpark's @KevOKeefe to work on fence restoration.

Roses have started to bloom in the St. Vartan Park garden, as reflected in this view from this afternoon. The public garden, on the west side of First Avenue between East 35th Street and East 36th Street, is open to all each week from Wednesday through Sunday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The land of St. Vartan Park has a deep history. In this public speech by @stvartanpark officer Juniper June Taraneh Shay recorded by @BussReports of @TAPSuttonLenox, attendees learn more about Juniper and the past. Juniper is an alum of nearby @PS116NYC. instagram.com/p/Cdstd5glFif/
Tonight's view from East 36th Street to Second Avenue, with the northwest corner of St. Vartan Park on the left and @EmpireStateBldg beyond, reminded us that the same view once featured elevated train tracks. The Second Avenue El had a stop at 34th Street until June 13, 1942.
Long cherished for green space (largest green block in this 1968 clip), St. Vartan Park is next to @MTA green still locked to the public. We can help MTA maintain the land for public use. Thanks to @KeithPowersNYC, @MarkLevineNYC, @RepMaloney, progress is afoot to open the green.
From our city's forests to the nearest park bench, our city's partners and committed volunteer groups host events across the city every month. Visit on.nyc.gov/3FRKnUJ to find park volunteer events that are happening near you, and meet your neighbors!

Wednesday in the St. Vartan Park garden, this Eastern tiger swallowtail butterfly was spotted attracted to echinacea that was planted on Monday. Students from The River School (P.S. 281, across the street from the garden) had added the echinacea under @stvartanpark supervision.
As expressed by our @Kelley_Anne in this shout-out at the launch of St. Vartan Park Conservancy this week, Murray Hill Neighborhood Association (MHNA) and the environmental work of MHNA Green & Clean Committee chair @michaelannrowe are shining lights for the park's community.
We love this @instagram creation from @NYUTischDance's Tai Lum and appreciate his accompanying words, including about @stvartanpark and the park's now-public garden ("... I hope you visit and experience it for yourself, my new favorite place in the city.") instagram.com/p/CdeZUY9g4xE/
Jazzed after learning more from @MBPMarkLevine this week about his vision for environmental progress for the borough. Worth this read about his Million More Trees proposal now backed by all the borough presidents: mailchi.mp/manhattanbp/fr…
