Parks for People 24/7 —2009 Union Square Calendar & Timeline
We — park lovers, artists, workers, activists, bikers, parents, citizens — believe that our precious public resources such as Union Square Park should stay in the hands of the people and that the park's pavilion should be committed to public use. This calendar — ’Parks for People 24/7’ — presents the work of artists and organizers who imagine alternate, public, year-round use for the pavilion that Union Square's Business Improvement District (BID) seeks to privatize and turn into an upscale pavilion.

As a reminder of the promise that a new year offers, this calendar was delivered to all the so-called Stake Holders who seek to privatize the Pavilion: The Union Square Partnership and its executive board including Danny Meyer, Eric Seiler, and Jennifer Falk; Adrian Benepe, Commissioner of NYC’s Parks Department; and elected officials Mayor Bloomberg, Christine Quinn and Rosie Mendez who are shepherding this sad and shameful act. The real Stakeholders in this case are the people of New York City, YOU!

The calendar is available for a small donation through Paypal (all proceeds go toward the ongoing fight for Union Square’s future)
