Central Park advocates in the press

Yesterday was tremendous for all of us--residents of New York and the millions of tourists from around the world--who believe in a bubble-free Central Park.  To relive the excitement of the Dept. of Parks and Recreation's announcement that it was withdrawing a proposal for four 35-foot-high tennis bubbles in Central Park, check out our e-blast.  Inside, you can also access several pieces of press covering this important issue.
And here's a sneak peak!  In the images posted here: LANDMARK WEST! Dir. of Community Outreach, Cristiana PeñaNew York City Park Advocates' Geoffrey Croft, a stalwart organization committed to protecting our public parkland; and chair of Community Board 7, Mel Wymore, a strong supporter of keeping Central Park free of bubbles.  (sadly, LW's comments didn't make the final cut);

Our comments, and those of Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe, were covered on New York 1 by reporter Vivian Lee.
