Thank you to the elected and city officials who worked to improve our beloved space: New York State Senator Brad Hoylman, City Council Speaker Corey Johnson, Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer, Assemblymember Richard N. Gottfried. As well as our local representatives: Steve Fanto of the West 45th/46th Street Block Association and Lowell Kern, co-chairperson of Community Board 4’s Waterfront, Parks & Environment Committee.
After the ribbon-cutting, Hell's Kitchen family enjoyed music by Unintended Consequences, food generously donated by HK businesses like Friendly's Hot Dogs, and a very cool historical exhibit curated by McKhellen Diaz of Hell's Kitchen Generations.
Last but not least, yo-yo performer Justin Weber enthralled all ages.
