In the spirit of placing the Statue of Liberty onto the 1811 Fort Wood, let us transform this decaying military fort into a vibrant cultural beacon.
The New Globe proposal has received the backing of hundreds of individuals and organizations, from Senators Clinton and Schumer to Congressman Nadler and Community Board #1, from actors (such as Al Pacino, Kevin Kline, Mark Rylance, Susan Sarandon, Ralph Fiennes, Julianne Moore, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kate Winslet and Philip Seymour Hoffman) to directors (Sam Mendes, Mike Nichols, Woody Allen, and Sir Peter Hall). Not only have pillars of New York's preservation community embraced the proposal (e.g., Prof. Ken Jackson, Kent Barwick, Mike Wallace), but also a diverse range of individuals from war veterans to acting students to G.I. army brats.

I ask you to join me and all of our supporters in urging the National Park Service to be visionary and imaginative!
Your action today truly makes a difference in our ongoing efforts to create a new cultural destination in New York Harbor. I hope to see you at opening night!
