Hulaween In The Cosmos! Monday, October 29, 2018

Are you ready to explore the final frontier? Well then fire up your rockets and join us for NYRP’s Hulaween in the Cosmos, on Monday, October 29, 2018 at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. Celebrating two committed leaders and dear friends of NYRP (Mica Ertegün and Darcy Stacom), this year’s intergalactic extravaganza will feature a Cosmic Costume Contest runway (judged by NYRP Trustee Michael Kors), signature cocktails and a feast by Danny Meyer’s Union Square Events, more stars than the Milky Way, and a galaxy of other surprises (stay tuned for the reveal of our headlining performer – you won’t want to miss them!).

So what are you waiting for? Purchase your tickets HERE or contact Jenna at Mission Control ( or 914.579.1000). It’s going to be out of this world…

In the unlikey event you’ve forgotten, here I am with my beloved cast of Herllo Dolly at Hulaween ’17:

Spring Picnic 2018: THANK YOU!


Thank You, Thank You, Thank You for
Supporting Spring Picnic!

New York Restoration Project would like to thank each and every person who came out to Spring Picnic last night from the very bottom of our hearts – it truly was a magical evening!

None of our work is possible without you – our supporters!

NYRP extends a special thanks to our honorees, Diane and Clyde Brownstone and Todd DeGarmo, for their extraordinary vision and commitment to ensuring that nature is a fundamental right of every New Yorker.

Debbie Harry, the lead singer for Blondie, captured the evening at Thomas Jefferson Park in East Harlem with beautiful sing-a-longs, including L.O.V.E. and That’s Amore, which the crowd delightfully participated in along with NYRP’s incredible founder Bette Midler. Leimay, a unique dance troupe from Brooklyn, kicked off the the night in the Rodale Pleasant Park and Tiffany Community Gardens where cocktails were served as guests looked on. Inside the tent, the John Pizzarelli Quartet and the Harlem Wizards entertained party-goers with live music, basketball tricks, and laughs all around.

“Your generosity enables NYRP to turn barren concrete lots into lush green open space, giving tens of thousands of children a place to spend time with family, learn that tomatoes don’t grow on trees, touch worms, meet neighbors, and have some peace,” said NYRP Executive Director Deborah Marton.

Thank you for all your support!
