to foster the conservation of New York City's historically and culturally significant places. These are places that hold memories and anchor traditions for individuals and communities, and that help
tell the history of the city as a whole. We are convinced that such places promote the well being of New York's many communities in ways that too often go unrecognized.The WSV Sasaki Garden is also included in the "Census of Places that Matter" where an extended profile of the Garden can be read. We would like to thank Molly Garfinkel and the staff of Place Matters for conferring unto the Garden "Place of the Month" status and for highlighting the multiple benefits provided by the Garden.
