Remembering Jenny with a Park Bench


As you may know, Jennifer loved Washington Square Park. She spent as much time there as she could—sketching, photographing, and enjoying lunch or lattes with friends. She was a park reporter and keen observer, sharing photos of whatever caught her fancy. Her vantage point was just to the right of the LaGuardia Place entrance. It was her special spot…Jenny’s bench. If you pass there now, you can still feel her presence.

To ensure that Jenny will always have a home in the park (as she does in our hearts), we’d like to place a plaque with her name on her favorite bench. To make this happen, we must raise $2500. We would love to reach our goal by November 15th...Jenny's birthday. Please help by donating what you can. If we’re lucky enough to exceed the designated amount, the excess will be donated to Village Health Works: A Center for Women’s Health in Burundi, East Africa, a charity that was dear to Jennifer.

We thank you—and look forward to seeing you at her bench!
