Queen Elizabeth II will attend the July 6 opening ceremony of the British Garden at Hanover Square in lower Manhattan.
The garden is the first 9/11 memorial to be completed and paid for, which makes garden trustees like Nick Howard, a managing director at Barclays Capital in New York, very proud.
The project has the support of money managers, including Aberdeen Asset Management, Baillie Gifford and Schroder Investment Management, as well as other U.S.- and U.K.-based financial institutions.
More support is needed to build an endowment for the garden, to pay for upkeep and events, such as 9/11 and Veterans Day memorials, as well as British-themed community events. — Drew Carter
