|THE DESTRUCTION CAUSED BY "SANDY"|
|Welcome to Tudor City Greens!|
A LETTER FROM OUR PRESIDENT
Tudor City Greens, Inc. (the Greens) is a New York 501(c)(3)not-for-profit corporation whose mission is to preserve and enhance Tudor City's two landmarked parks. The parks are located on Tudor City Place on either side of East 42nd Street, east of Second Avenue. The Greens was formed in 1987 to assume ownership and responsibility for the parks, under the auspices of The Trust for Public Land, when Tudor City buildings were being converted to cooperative ownership by the sponsor, Time-Equities.
Both Tudor City Greens parks sustained heavy damage during Hurricane Sandy. Many 100+ year old trees were lost and other trees have been taken down by tree experts; custom made iron fences were destroyed, sidewalks were destroyed when trees fell, plantings were ruined, light poles and electrical fixtures were damaged. The work required to return the parks to their precious beauty is significant, and is already underway, however, the work is very costly, and Tudor City Greens relies upon donations to survive.
Perhaps you come into the Tudor City parks to attend a concert, eat lunch, meet a friend, or just relax. But you get so much more. You become part of this vibrant community.
In this time of need, we are urging all the buildings, residents, neighbors and friends of Tudor City to make a generous gift by Paypal, Credit Card, or Check by clicking DONATE.
Our Spring 2013 events are taking place as scheduled on the calendar appearing on this website. Tudor City Greens will be hosting three outdoor Summer Garden Parties in 2013 on May 16 (past), June 20 and July 25 from 6:30 pm - 8:30 p.m. to raise funds for the continued preservation of Tudor City Greens North and South Parks. Rain dates for each event are the next day (Friday). Admission to the events is by ticket only, with the $20 per person ticket being available for advance purchase via the Paypal link on the calendar of this website. Tickets will also be available at the gate on the evening of the event for $25 (cash only).
As a reminder, please do not feed the pigeons in the Tudor City Parks. There are dozens of reasons why, but mainly: feeding pigeons harms our neighborhood and also harms the birds. It is strictly prohibited by Tudor City Greens, Inc. to feed the pigeons in the parks. Violators may be cited and banned from entering the parks.
