Honoring The Grand Army Plaza

Please note that this site is currently being developed. The main idea is to develop an online community, where users will be able to communicate about issues, activities, and other things connected to the Grand Army Plaza. Eventually the site will act as a forum, with the intent to promote the Grand Army Plaza, as well as facilitate change and community support for the place. We are all very excited about this project and we welcome ideas and contributions, and hope that you will come back soon to see our site once it is 100% complete!
