Spring Gala: A Special Salute in 2017
As we reflect on the special happenings of 2017 we fondly remember our Annual Spring Gala and our special honoree Charles McKinney. Charles was Riverside Park’s first Park Administrator and he played a crucial role in helping establish the Riverside Park Fund which is now the Riverside Park Conservancy. It was an honor to celebrate the works of a great manager with the soul and sensibilities of a landscape architect. Charles has made a unique contribution to Riverside Park and the public realm of New York City.
