Happy holidays from NYC public school parents!

With all the dismal economic and education news, it is easy to forget that NYC parents are occasionally able to prevail and preserve something precious for their kids.

Villagers fought like crazy for over ten years to save the mounds in Washington Square Park from being eliminated by the Parks Dept. We finally won our battle, thanks to support from Council Member Alan Gerson and Community Board 2.

Enjoy the video clip below by Matt Davis, and happy holidays to all!
