    The renaissance of Union Square is three decades in the making, and we thank you for your unwavering support of our park beautification, programming initiatives, district marketing, and small business and networking events. We could not do this work without the invaluable assistance of the Mayor and his team at City Hall, the staffs at the Departments of Environmental Protection, Fire, Information & Technology, Parks & Recreation, Police, Sanitation, Small Business Services and Transportation and NYC Transit. In addition, the following businesses, organizations and individuals that helped make Union Square the exceptional neighborhood destination that it is. We thank them for their many contributions.
