New trees were planted last spring at sites across all five boros. Just as important to planting trees is ensuring their long-term health and survival through stewardship. During October 8 – 16, volunteers, with the support of the NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee and the NFL, will come out to all five boroughs and help take care of their neighborhood’s newest green asset—their growing forest. Volunteers will pull weeds, remove invasive vegetation, add mulch, and clean-up any litter. The stewardship activities will culminate in the largest planting in one site to date on Saturday October 19, 2013 with 20,000 trees and 5,000 shrubs planted at Rockaway Community Park.

The historic Brush stairway located at West 157th Street is being reconstructed with the same utilitarian characteristics and simple expression of steel and concrete as the original. While incorporating similar materials, the stairway will be upgraded to meet today's building code. The lower area along the Harlem River drive will be improved with new picnic tables, a game table, benches and landscaping.
Anticipated Completion: Winter 2014
