Well, no, 2008 wasn’t a perfect year and we’ve had to contend with the possibility that Mayor Bloomberg might linger in office much longer than anyone wanted, but, let’s be optimistic! For Washington Square Park, things can only get better as we see exactly what can be done (i.e., changed) with the plan from here on. Here’s hoping for a new year in which lies, lack of transparency, apathy, arrogance, catering to corporate interests and overemphasis on real estate values get put to rest and inspiration, truth, negotiation, strategy, logic, people coming together, change, tenaciousness, and the magical park win out. Happy New Year.
