Keeping the Neighborhood Green

Thanks to a grant from Columbia University Institutional Real Estate, local residents have bulk-bought flats of Impatiens, Salvia and other varieties from the New York City Council on the Environment and have planted them in our local tree pits. The flowers should last all season long if not molested, but we need volunteers to help plant them and to water them once they are there.

Our thanks to Cafe Pertutti, Tom's Restaurant, the Hungarian Pastry Shop and the other merchants who have volunteered to keep our flowers watered. We note that these restaurants hail from cultures with fine urbanist traditions. If you want to participate, please e-mail us at or call Barbara Hohol at (212) 662-0354. The flowers below are in front of a building on Claremont Ave.
