R. Barnes
White Plains a beautiful place to live,
work or visit.
R. Barnes
For many years the gateway garden on the
corner of North Street and Rosedale Avenue (pictured
above) enjoyed the security of a Major Sponsor;
however, we lost its funding this past year, so it is
now back on the list of very needy gardens and
available for adoption immediately. We will have it
all planted in the spring so you can see how lovely it
is. A new garden sign with your name or names will
make you proud and all of us happy.
For many years, this particular beauty in the center
of upper Tibbits Park, near the Gazebo, was sponsored by one of our large retailers in White Plains
and was admired daily by North Broadway pedestrians and vehicular traffic. This year the garden will
be dedicated to all who have been touched by cancer in some way and we invite everyone to help
sponsor this garden on whatever level is comfortable. We hope by doing so you will find solace in
the enduring beauty of the blossoms that come
alive each spring.
Other Tibbits Park gardens located south of the Civil
War Statue are also in need of adoption. One borders Westchester Avenue on the left as it comes up
J. Bello
to meet Main Street (above right), and one on the
bend as you leave Westchester Avenue to circle up
to South Broadway. Thousands of cars drive by
these two lovely gardens daily. Become a Major
Sponsor and your name can be displayed on a signature Beautification sign in either (or both!) of these
By adopting one of these gardens you help make the
city more beautiful and welcoming and provide happy
respites from the stresses of daily life for thousands
of people who live, work or visit White Plains.
Countdown to our 50th Anniversary!
Get Ready …
White Plains Beautification Foundation will be celebrating its Golden 50th Anniversary in 2015. Fifty
years as an all-volunteer organization is pretty special and certainly something to celebrate! To commemorate our unique place in the history of White
Plains we are planning some fantastic gardens,
programs and events, including a daffodil program,

as skills that for some may lead to
future employment. Pulcini says,

In honor of our 50th Anniversary, we are planning a new project here
in White Plains - the planting of one million daffodils. Can you imagine driving up Mamaroneck Avenue starting at Bryant Avenue and having the island planted with a sea of yellow daffodils? Of course we
will need your help to attain this. A donation from you to our Daffodil
Fund would allow us to plant the bulbs which will bloom year after
year. It's a great way to remember or honor a loved one. Give the gift
of flowers that keep coming back for someone's birthday or anniversary. The possibilities are endless!
Our "all volunteer organization" has been beautifying White Plains for
50 years! We rely on the support from residents, friends and local
businesses in and around White Plains. Through all your generous
donations, including Adopt-a-Park sponsorships, we have been able to
plant and maintain over 60 gardens throughout White Plains. And, the
work is never done. We have four gardens waiting to be adopted,
including the gateway garden at the intersection of North Street and
Rosedale, a new garden dedicated to cancer survivors and victims and
two Tibbits Park gardens south of the Civil War statue.
We do receive some help from our friends, the city of White Plains,
and three amazing nurseries located in the heart of White Plains:
Amodio's Garden Center, Gedney Farms Nursery and Ridgeway
Garden Center. It is with great pleasure that we will honor these three
nurseries at our 49th fall gala on October 2, 2014 at the beautiful
Westchester Hills Golf Club.
Please stroll our gardens and parks; they are there for your enjoyment.

pockets of happiness that your organization creates bring a
smile to my face every time I drive through this city. It's
always a pleasure to watch the cherry blossoms "pop" or
enjoy the change of seasons through our gardens. White
Plains is truly a wonderful place to live and work because of
the amazing things you and your organization do.
Know also that John and I will continue to support your
organization because we believe in what you do - the beauty
that you create brings more people to downtown White
Plains, which has spurred more restaurants, shops, and
nightlife. More people want to live in a city that values beauty and that means continued growth and prosperity for White
Plains. I can't think of a better investment for the future."

Since 1968, White Plains Beautification Foundation Board
Member Bob Pollack has given his all to the foundation.
Bob was a young architect when he was introduced to us
by his employer, the late George van Geldern. He was
invited to become a member of the very small board of
directors, and since that time has created magic that we
never dreamed possible.
of the collapsing Summerhouse, a Calvin Vaux creation,
on South Broadway at Martine Avenue. Using pressuretreated wood and modern methods, he designed a structure so like the original that people never even knew it
had been replaced. Even those lovely green signs thanking Adopt-a-Park sponsors in all WPBF gardens were
designed by Bob Pollack.
Bob's creativity dates to Saunders Trade and Technical
High School in Yonkers where he pursued an architectural
curriculum followed by architectural study at Pratt Institute
in Brooklyn. He won a national design
competition for the design of the
Metropolitan Opera House staircase in
Lincoln Center.
To this date, Bob continues to volunteer his expertise,
time and creative genius to WPBF. He and his wife Donna
are the parents of two grown sons.
In 1979, Bob started his own practice in
Valhalla. An inventor of hundreds of
items, many architectural devices for
transportation and energy conservation
and generation, Bob has 10 patents
The magic that Bob has created for the
WPBF and the City of White Plains is
endless. He saved the granite steps from
the old courthouse and repurposed them
as benches. He designed the Edwin G.
