While our central mission is to restore Untermyer Gardens, we appreciate the needs of our neighbors, and our community greening outreach has built to a crescendo over the past two weeks. Two weeks ago, we held a dedication for two handsome oaks at the historic Philipse Manor Hall in downtown Yonkers. We planted the trees in honor of Senator Nicholas Spano and Nancy Little, who were instrumental in saving the Manor, another Yonkers gem, from being closed by New York State in 1991.
