Hisayuki Suekawa, president and chief executive officer of Shiseido Co. Ltd., flew from Tokyo to an out-of-the-way neighborhood in northern Manhattan Monday to lend a hand in helping his New York staff plant a cherry tree outside a public elementary school.
The 20 or so Shiseido volunteers, led by Shiseido Cosmetics America ceo Heidi Manheimer, had joined forces with members of the New York Restoration Project in cleaning up the green space and planting the tree at the PS 5 Ellen Lurie school adjacent to a park along the Harlem River Esplanade at Dyckman Street and Harlem River Drive between Inwood and Washington Heights.
