"Što Te Nema?" is a public art project created as a response to the Srebrenica Genocide. "Što Te Nema?" is collectively assembled and disassembled by people on city plazas and squares annually on July 11th. The public participates by placing small, porcelain coffee cups on the ground and filling them with Bosnian coffee prepared throughout the day. The thousands of small porcelain coffee cups called "fildžani" are continuously collected and donated by Bosnian families from all over the world.

NYC Parks is currently undergoing a thorough inspection of all trees in Washington Square Park. The last inspection occurred roughly two years ago and immediate hazards were identified and resolved. As of August 8, our Manhattan Forestry unit will be pruning approximately 270 trees over several days. Additionally, there will be one removal of a 32-inch pin oak with root rot in the northwest section of the park to ensure public safety.
