PTNY at Work
In Memory of Robin Dropkin
Robin Dropkin, PTNY’S long-standing executive director, passed away peacefully this past Sunday morning February 26, 2023. She was with her family, surrounded by loved ones. Thank you to all who have shared kind words and fond memories about Robin and her work. As we grieve, we also celebrate the many lives Robin touched, and her tremendous impact in preserving, improving and expanding the parks, trails and open spaces of New York State. Please send your remembrances, appreciations, or stories of working beside Robin to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll share these with Robin's family, and, later, with the wider PTNY community as part of a tribute to Robin’s extraordinary life and impact. Robin was a beloved force in the world of New York’s public green spaces, and she will be deeply missed. Sincerely, The PTNY Staff & Board
