2013_honoreesOn Wednesday, November 13, Parks & Trails New York presented its George W. Perkins Award to

  • Citi for its exemplary commitment to New York through its investment in the widely successful Citi Bike program
  • Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan for her extraordinary leadership in transforming New York’s streets and vastly improving the city’s physical, social and economic environment
  • Four Freedoms Park Conservancy for its dedication to building and operating a beautiful and meaningful green space on Roosevelt Island, Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms State Park.

As the evening’s mistress of ceremonies, PTNY’s Board Chair Judith C. Mower said, “A word that applies to all of our honorees this evening is transformational, the transformation of an island through the creation of one of our newest state parks, the transformation of a city through the efforts of an innovative and determined individual, and the transformation of a society through a program that changes how people move. At PTNY we are proud to recognize our honorees for their commitment to a better life for all New Yorkers.”
