As part of an effort to improve the environment in Lower Manhattan, the Alliance for Downtown New York, Andaz Wall Street and 75 Wall Street Condominium Residences are teaming up to host Spring Community Day on Saturday, May 7.
From 10 a.m. to noon, volunteers will plant more than 300 annuals at Mannahatta Park on Wall Street between Water and South Streets. The Andaz hotel will also launch its annual farmers’ market that day, open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Water Street, where renowned chef Maximo Lopez May from the hotel’s Wall & Water restaurant will be preparing samples.
Rounding out the day’s activities, from noon to 2 p.m., 75 Wall Street Condominium Residences will offer story time, face painting and a balloon artist for children, and mini-massages by Andaz spa therapists for adults. The festivities will take place on the building’s roof, where there will be a supply of cupcakes from Crumbs Bake Shop for people to decorate — and eat.
