Below is a re-post of my City Council office's government newsletter. The original can be found here.
Last month, we announced another $80 million for the Esplanade, this time for John Finley Walk, after fighting for this funding alongside Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney as co-chairs of the East River Esplanade.

This July, please join us for the return of NY Classical Theatre’s Shakespeare in the Park with performances of King Lear in Carl Schurz Park. This 4th of July I hope to celebrate our independence as a nation and from this virus.
