Dear friends of the Brooklyn Bridge Forest,
Thanks to everyone who came out on Saturday to the New Amsterdam Market! It was a pleasure to talk with so many knowledgeable New Yorkers (and visitors) about the Brooklyn Bridge Forest, and great to hear your thoughts and questions as we begin to seek public support for preserving both the Brooklyn Bridge boardwalk and the environment. We have posted some photos of the event on our Facebook page.
Our plan is to continue to build momentum with more publicity and support in the coming weeks, so please spread the word about the Brooklyn Bridge Forest to your friends and family by sending them to our website, where they can sign up. This is critical as we approach the city. We would like to have 1,000 friends of the project registered this month.
We are also accepting financial donations and corporate sponsorships that will help the project gain further public support, and fund our 501C3 registration. If you know of particular people or organizations that we should be talking to, please email us at email@example.com.
Thanks again for joining us in the first step towards making the Brooklyn Bridge Forest a reality,
Brooklyn Bridge Forest team
