Roll The Credits

The Turtle Bay Association spearheaded the redesign of the park known as Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, but we could not have prevailed these many years were it not for the unfailing support of Community Board 6, our neighboring community organizations, NYC Parks Commissioner Henry Stern, park architect George Vellonakis, and our elected officials. Hats off to the die-hard TBA board members who worked long and hard to see this park through to completion and to those TBA members who wrote letters, signed petitions, attended hearings, and despite setbacks, refused to give up. With the removal of the construction fence, the park will be returned to the public a half-acre larger to measure a total of 1.5 acres, magnificently transformed from a barren plaza to an elegant promenade and garden, befitting its location as a gateway to the United Nations.
