Saving Jamaica Bay tells the story of how one community fought the government and overcame Hurricane Sandy to clean up and restore the largest open space in New York City. Narrated by Academy Award-winning actress Susan Sarandon, Saving Jamaica Bay also symbolizes the efforts to preserve urban nature, combat climate change, and invest in national parks.
Come by the Park to watch this film under the Arch. After the screening, you will have the opportunity to meet Dan Hendrick, the filmmaker behind Saving Jamaica Bay.
