State Senator Daniel Squadron opens the event_WhitneyBrowne-2472Daniel Squadron is serving his third term representing New York’s 26th Senate District, which includes the Brooklyn neighborhoods of Greenpoint, Williamsburg, Vinegar Hill, DUMBO, Fulton Ferry, Brooklyn Heights, Downtown Brooklyn, Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens, and Columbia Waterfront, and the Manhattan neighborhoods of Tribeca, Battery Park City, the Lower East Side, Chinatown, the Financial District, Little Italy, SoHo, and the East Village. First elected in November 2008 at the age of 28, he unseated a 30-year incumbent who had been in office since before Senator Squadron was born.

Senator Squadron is a strong believer in the importance of parks and open space for all communities. He’s long advocated for a Harbor Park — a central park for the center of our city — and has successfully moved each of its elements forward: from agreements to secure the futures of Brooklyn Bridge Park and Governors Island, to new funding to build a world-class waterfront park on the Lower East Side’s Pier 42.
