October 18, 2019 (New York, NY) – Last night, on October 17th, Hudson River Park held its Annual Gala at Cipriani South Street, celebrating the near completion of Hudson River Park. Hosted by Sandra Bernhard, the evening honored Michael R.

“Hudson River Park is one of the most vibrant and beautiful places in the city, and it’s growing greener and greater every single day thanks to the Trust and all of you,” said Michael R. Bloomberg as he accepted his honor. “When you go home tonight, look in the mirror. If you've supported Hudson River Park,

you can smile knowing that you've made a difference for everyone in this city, and you've made a difference for yourselves.”

The gala was produced by JWP.

About Hudson River Park: One of the longest riverfront park’s in the nation, Hudson River Park is Manhattan’s west side backyard.  Running from Chambers to W59th Street, it has transformed four miles of decaying industrial piers and wharves into a 550-acre urban recreational paradise. Hudson River Park attracts millions of visitors to its myriad sports facilities


educational, environmental and cultural programs, imaginative playgrounds, lively dog parks and lush green lawns, waterfront esplanade and the Hudson River Greenway bike path. Hudson River Park is NOT a city park and relies on private donations and community support for its daily maintenance, operations and public programming
