ABOUT THE JACKSON HEIGHTS GREEN ALLIANCE AND THE 78TH STREET PLAZA
The Jackson Heights Green Alliance (JHGA) is a 501(c)(3) community-based organization that advocates for increased open space in Jackson Heights. Founded in 2007 by a group of residents concerned about the lack of park space in the neighborhood, the JHGA has since launched several initiatives, including the 78th Street Play Street which is now the 78th Street Public Plaza and the Grow-A-Park campaign, which resulted in the Garden School Field becoming a public park.
